Ugly weekend in Dartmouth athletics

The winning ways of the previous 2 weekends wore off, as the major team sports lost or underachieved all weekend long.

The football team held a 21-20 lead with 2 mintues to go, but gave up a 95-yard drive to allow Brown to score their 3rd touchdown of the fourth quarter to pull out a 26-21 victory over Dartmouth. The lack of a running game really hurt Dartmouth, as they had a first and 5 in Brown territory needing only to get one first down to ice the game, and they ended up being forced to punt. This came after two other 3-and-outs by the offense when they needed to be running the clock.

Women’s soccer lost 5-0 to Florida State in the opening round of the NCAA tournament. They had gone 6-0-1 in the Ivy League to clinch the title and get the automatic berth.

The Men’s hockey team remained unbeaten at 2-0-3, but had to settle for two 1-1 ties on the weekend @Union and @RPI. Dartmouth’s defense and netminder Dan Yacey ’05 have been outstanding, but the offense has yet to get on track.

Women’s hockey won yesterday 1-0 against UConn to improve to 4-0, but by all indications it could’ve easily gone the other way. They play UConn again this afternoon.
