Saturday Sports

Men’s hockey achieved its first three-game winning streak in 2 seasons by knocking off RPI 4-2 and gaining its first weekend sweep of the season.

Next weekend is huge. No one on the current team has ever beaten Harvard, and both Harvard and Brown are “Teams Under Consideration” for PWR purposes. With 8 games remaining in the regular season, Dartmouth trails Harvard by 3 points for the all-important 4th place spot and first round bye in the ECAC tournament. If the team wants any shot at an at-large bid for the NCAA tournament, they probably need to go at least 6-2 down the stretch and at least 3-1-1 against the 5 remaining TUC’s (Harvard x2, Brown x2, and St. Lawrence).

Elsewhere, men’s basketball lost at Columbia 64-45 and will travel to Cornell tomorrow. No score in yet from women’s basketball.
