On the face-off following the goal Anderson took the ball, drove his way around three defenders, and tossed to Monk Aiello who made it 8 to 7 at 1:40.

Dartmouth scored half a minute later, but Fred Horween put the Crimson ahead again by taking the subsequent face-off and driving in for a solo goal at 2:25. For over 11 minutes the teams traded possession with no score.

With a minute left, the Crimson three men down because of penalties, Albie Wells, the only Crimson player able to cross the center line, picked a loose ball out of a pileup in his own territory and sped downfield for an assist to Aiello at 13:54.
