Dartmouth loses 2nd in a row

Dartmouth lost to #9 UNH tonight by a 5-0 final, though the score was not nearly indicative of the flow of the game. Dartmouth outplayed New Hampshire for 90% of the first period, but trailed 2-0 nonetheless. The second period was pretty even, though again UNH score twice to make it 4-0. The third period was a foregone conclusion, and both teams pretty much went through the motions, though UNH scored once to make it a 5-0 final.

Certainly not the best game from netminder Dan Yacey ’05 or the offense, and Dartmouth missed the services of Brian Van Abel ’04 who was out with a high ankle sprain, but it wasn’t like they were completely manhandled like they were against Boston College. Dartmouth probably should’ve lost like 4-2 or 5-3, but there’s a reason the UNH netminder was an All-American last year.
