Around the Ivy League

Football: In a game all Dartmouth football fans will be watching, Harvard faces Yale in New Haven on Saturday. A win or a tie by the Crimson would give them this year's Ivy League title outright. The Crimson earned a share of the title last week when they defeated Penn, 33-0. It is their first title since 1987.

The only way Dartmouth can claim a share of the title is by defeating Princeton and hoping that Yale knocks off Harvard in the Yale Bowl to add another chapter to their storied rival.

Yale, though, is winless in league play to date with a record of 0-6. Still, Yale gave Dartmouth problems in the second half of their game earlier this season.

Field Hockey: The Princeton Tigers upset No. 4 seeded Maryland in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Field Hockey Tournament, 4-0.

The Tigers will now face last year's defending champion, North Carolina, in a Final Four rematch on Friday at the University of Connecticut. UNC defeated Princeton, 3-0, in the finals last year.

Maryland had defeated Princeton, 7-2, earlier in the regular season. The shutout by the Tigers was the first time Maryland had been held scoreless all year.

Men's Soccer: Brown, who knocked off Dartmouth for the Ivy League title, received a tough draw when the NCAA tournament seedings were announced Monday.

The Bruins will play St. John's University on Sunday, last year's defending national champions.

St. John's defeated Brown, 6-0 earlier in the season. The title was the third in four years for Brown. St. John's is one of the top four seeds in the tournament this year.

Women's Soccer: Ivy League champion Harvard advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament by defeating the University of Massachusetts, 2-0, last week.
