Dartmouth Flies by Cornell

Dartmouth defeats Cornell.

Dartmouth defeats Cornell.

Dartmouth won a big game at Cornell coming off of a disappointing loss against unbeaten Harvard at home the week before. The offense put up 583 yards and 42 points in the shellacking against Cornell, while the defense held the Cornell offense to just 7 points. Junior quarterback Dalyn Williams was brilliant again, passing for 381 yards (a mere 7 yards behind his career high set at Yale this year and the sixth highest in Dartmouth history) and 4 scores. In addition to the explosive play through the air, he continue his multidimensional offensive play, adding 62 yards and another touchdown on the ground. Running back Kyle Bramble racked up 159 yards rushing and receiving, adding two scores himself. Wide receiver Victor Williams had a 100 yards receiving in addition to a touchdown catch. Cornell started off with a fast pace, scoring on a long a touchdown run and going up early. But the Big Red proceeded to miss a field goal after a Williams interception on the 4th play of Dartmouth’s next drive. After these few mistakes, Dartmouth never turned back, scoring 42 unanswered and handing winless Cornell another loss. The defense came up especially big in the fourth quarter, as Cornell marched down the field into the red zone 3 time, but failed to convert each time. The Big Green defense came up with 2 dominant goal line stands and a fumble recovery in the end zone to keep Cornell off the board. Dartmouth takes on Brown in Hanover next week for its final homestand before a crucial road trip that includes a game at Princeton which could be a deciding factor in the final Ivy League standings. Cornell takes on Columbia next week with each team looking to get its first victory on the season.
