Playing in windy, frigid and generally disorienting conditions on an unusual grass surface in Providence, Rhode Island, the football team faced several obstacles on Saturday that detracted from its typically efficient and stable character. Nevertheless, the No. 23 Big Green (8-1, 5-1 Ivy) grew an early lead and finished with a 34-18 defeat of Brown University (4-5, 2-4 Ivy), emerging from a sloppy game that contained 13 combined turnovers, four failed extra point attempts and uncharacteristically poor passing performances by both teams.
“The world didn’t end with the loss to Harvard [University],” football head coach Buddy Teevens said in reference to the last-minute defeat three weeks back that snapped his team’s 2015 undefeated record.
As the end of the fall rapidly approaches, fall sports teams are wrapping up their seasons and putting the finishing touches on their pursuit of Ivy League championships. Men’s soccer and women’s rugby have already clinched Ivy League titles, while football remains in the hunt for the Ancient Eight crown. For some Big Green teams, this weekend of games also marks some of the season’s first action. In honor of the last weekend of the fall term, The Dartmouth decided to bring back an old tradition, the Big Green Weekend Primer, where the sports editors give their predictions on the weekend to come.
Hello Dartmouth basketball fans! Shoot for it boys back again for our final column of the term. Thank you so much for putting up with our basketball “analysis.” We thought it’d be fitting to discuss Kobe Bryant’s retirement rumors this week.
In its season finale this past weekend, the women’s soccer team notched its first win in Ivy League play, defeating Cornell University 1-0 at Burnham Field. On a brisk Saturday afternoon, the Big Green (8-4-4, 1-3-3 Ivy) put together a complete performance that the team struggled to find early in this season’s conference play, controlling the pace and possession of the game from the outset and generating chances early and often. A goal scored by Lucielle Kozlov ’16 in the 60th minute was all the Big Green needed to grab a win over Cornell (9-4-4, 2-4-1 Ivy) and move ahead of Yale University to finish seventh in the Ivy League standings.
Facing strong performances from their opponent’s penalty kill unit and goalie, the women’s hockey team fell 4-1 to the University of Maine at Thompson Arena on Tuesday night. The Big Green (2-2-2, 2-1-2 ECAC) struggled to finish off many of its chances offensively, especially on the power play.
In honor of women's rugby's inaugural season as a varsity sport — and the Ivy League championship they clinched last weekend — here's the tagline for the club from a 1980s issue of The Dartmouth. "Elegant violence" is such an enticing tagline — I imagine that this helped the then-club sport on their way to their current success.

In a nail-biter from start to finish, the women’s rugby team successfully managed to fight back against reigning title holder No. 12 Brown University for the win. With the score tied 12-12 and only eight minutes remaining in the game, Audrey Perez ’17 broke free for the Ivy League Championship-winning try. Dartmouth converted its extra point and held on to the lead, ending the game with a 19-12 victory and its first Ivy League title in its debut season as a varsity program.

Playing in a nationally televised game for the second straight week, the football team managed to return to its winning ways a week removed from a heartbreaking loss to Harvard University. Despite committing an obscene amount of penalties for the second straight home game that contributed to a sluggish flow for most of the night, the No. 24 Big Green (7-1, 4-1 Ivy) ultimately prevailed over Cornell University (0-8, 0-5 Ivy) by a commanding score of 21-3.
Much like it did in the 2014 season, the loss to the Harvard Crimson last Friday seems to have extinguished Dartmouth’s Ivy League title aspirations. Playing on the biggest stage of the season — a nationally broadcast matchup between two undefeated squads that would leave the victor with the best shot at winning the conference — the Big Green suffered a demoralizing comeback loss after only trailing the Crimson for the final 38 seconds of the game.
There is not a single rugby player in this world that has not been yelled at by his ten. Not setting a proper platform for the kick? Trying to run a pick when the call is to get the ball out? Generally doing anything that is not helpful to what the flyhalf wants to do in that moment? Breathing in a space where your ten is upset? It can make you wonder how Dawit Workie ’17 ever ended up at flyhalf.
What’s good Dartmouth? The “Shoot For It” boys are back in action this week talking about the reigning National Basketball Association’s Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry.

From Oct. 22 to Oct. 26, eight members of the men’s tennis team competed in the Intercollegiate Northeast Regional Championship hosted by Yale University. Dovydas Sakinis ’16 became the second Big Green singles player — and the first since 1992 — to capture the championship with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Columbia University freshman Victor Pham. Roko Glasnovic ’19 and Diego Pedraza ’17 came just short of winning the doubles title for Darmouth, losing to Columbia juniors Richard Pham and Shawn Hadavi in the final round in three sets, 6-2, 3-6 (10-8).
The No. 22 men’s soccer team continued its winning ways, defeating non-conference foe Northeastern University 2-0 at Burnham Field on Tuesday evening. The victory — the Big Green’s eighth in its last nine contests, including five straight victories at home — improves Dartmouth’s overall record to 10-4-1, while it maintains an undefeated 5-0 Ivy League record. Despite a first half in which Northeastern (3-12-2, 2-6-0 CAA) outshot Dartmouth 10 to two, the Big Green regrouped and came out firing in the second half with Amadu Kunateh ’19 and Eduvie Ikoba ’19 both netting goals to grab the two-goal victory.
The men’s and women’s cross country teams failed to produce the results they were hoping for at the Ivy League Heptagonal Championships. Strong individual performances from Dana Giordano ’16, who placed second in the women’s race, and Brian Masterson ’16, who placed sixth in the men’s, were highlights of the teams’ performances at Van Cortlandt Park this past Friday.
