Women Look to Follow Up Victory

The Dartmouth women's soccer team will step onto Chase Field Sunday at noon in an Ivy League match-up against Columbia, hoping to capitalize on the momentum gathered after Wednesday's rousing 2-0 win over Syracuse.

A few key changes in lineup and pregame warmup seemed to make the difference in Wednesday's match, helping the Big Green avoid the disastrous string of early goals-against that had hampered earlier efforts. This Sunday's match could do much to solidify any hopes of postseason play, as well as making a sound statement to the rest of the Ivy League.

Last year's Columbia game resulted in a scoring frenzy that saw nearly every Dartmouth player make her mark with either a goal or an assist. A similar win this Sunday would help affirm Dartmouth's presence as an offensive power, as well as continue to build the confidence of the Big Green's talented group of attackers.
