#3 Dartmouth upends #2 Harvard 2-1

The women’s hockey team shook off a 5-5 tie against Brown yesterday in which they blew a 4-1 lead by rallying to defeat #2 Harvard 2-1 in Cambridge, MA. Sarah Clark scored both goals for Dartmouth, which trailed 1-0 heading into the final period.

With #1 Minnesota losing to #4 Minnesota-Duluth this weekend, the #1 slot appears to be up for grabs between Dartmouth (11-1-2) and Minnesota (14-1-1). Harvard (13-1-1) should also remain near the top, though given the loss to Dartmouth it will be hard to keep them ahead of the Green.

The game was played before 1900+ fans at Harvard. I would expect that to be easily eclipsed when Harvard comes up here the last Friday in February, especially if both teams remain in the top 3 in the country.
