Lia Constantine ’21 scored her first collegiate goal to lead the Big Green (3-5, 0-1 Ivy) past Fairfield University (2-7) on Wednesday by a score of 3-2. The Stags got on the board first after a backhand shot from Andrea Soler made it past Big Green goalie Hailey Valerio ’19 in the game’s third minute. The score remained 1-0 until the 30th minute when Katie Spanos ’20 sent in a rebound to even things up. Another Soler goal just before halftime made the score 2-1 in favor of the Stags. The Big Green pulled even again in the 42nd minute with another goal from Spanos, her fifth of the season. Then with 8:07 remaining, Constantine sent a loose ball into the back of the net to give the Big Green its first lead of the game. Behind Valerio in net, Dartmouth held on for the 3-2 win. Fairfield finished with a 15-10 advantage in shots, but the teams each had nine shots on goal. Valerio saved seven Stag shots while picking up her third win of the season.
