M. Lax Winds Down Season at Dartmouth

Harvard faces a much less intimidating opponent this weekend in Dartmouth. The Big Green (4-8, 1-4 Ivy) was destroyed last Saturday by the three-time defending champion Princeton Tigers by the score of 16-1. After one quarter, the Tigers had surged ahead to a 6-0 lead, and after the first half, Princeton led 12-1.

The Tigers outshot the Big Green 50-21. Dartmouth's lone goal was scored by freshman attacker Connor Price.


The Big Green's one-goal total was the team's lowest output since April 1970, when Dartmouth dropped an 11-1 decision to Yale.

Throughout the season, Dartmouth has toyed with a two-man goalie unit, with Andrew Dance and Patrick McClammer splitting playing time at the net.

"We're expecting a hard-fought game," Sprong said. "We really want to go out on a high note."

But Dartmouth has the potential to be dangerous.

"They're going to be a pretty good team," Buttles said. "They upset Brown earlier this season, and we'd lost to Brown. They're very capable of playing good games, but it all depends on what team comes out to play."
