Dartmouth shocks #2 Princeton in men’s lacrosse 13-6

Dartmouth beat #2 Princeton 13-6 in men’s lacrosse Saturday afternoon, giving Dartmouth their first victory over Princeton since 1988 and just their second win ever at Princeton, the other coming all the way back in 1955.

Dartmouth (10-2, 4-1) will try to earn a share of just its third Ivy Title in school history Friday night when it hosts Harvard at 7 PM. Dartmouth’s previous titles came in 1964 when they shared it with Harvard and Princeton and 1965 when they split it with Princeton. Dartmouth has never won a title outright.

Cornell has already finished at 5-1 in the Ivy League and has clinched at least a share of the title. Princeton can make it a three-way tie by defeating Brown on Friday.

If Princeton loses and just Dartmouth and Cornell are tied, Cornell will get the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament due to their victory over Dartmouth earlier this season. If there is a three-way tie for 1st, a random drawing will decide who gets the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament because the other tiebreaking measures don’t resolve the tie. Dartmouth could still possibly get an at-large berth if they don’t get the automatic bid.

And for those wondering, there are only 6 Ivy League games because Columbia does not have a men’s lacrosse team.
