Ivy dreams gone for men's soccer

The men's soccer team limped home from Boston after a hard-fought 0-0 overtime tie with Harvard on Saturday afternoon. Dartmouth outshot Harvard 14-13 in a very evenly played match that had post-season implications for both teams. The result eliminated Dartmouth from the Ivy League title hunt, but the Big Green, whose record now stands at 6-3-3, can still make the NCAA tournament by earning an at-large berth.

With the Big Green's record now at 5-3-2, their chances of being contenders in the NCAA tournament are endangered.

Men's soccer is shut out by Terrapins and Cavaliers

The men's soccer team returned early Monday morning from the Lanzera/Holiday Inn Classic tournament in Charlottesville, VA after being shut out by two nationally-ranked teams over the weekend.

"We had a spell at the beginning of the season where we scored a few goals," Coach Fran O'Leary said.

Men's soccer gets back on the ball

The men's soccer team, still recovering from its disheartening 1-4 loss against Brown Oct, 8, rebounded by beating Boston College yesterday 1-0. On the second game of a four-game road trip, the Big Green pushed across a goal in the 88th minute to down the Eagles after a scoreless first half and quite an uneventful game in general. Despite the fact that the team had to play without its All-Ivy defender, Ian Saward '95, the remaining players were able to get the job done on their own. John Bosacco '96, at the very end of the second half, was able to shoot his third goal of the season, which resulted in Dartmouth's well-earned victory. Basacco felt that the players were concentrating more at Wednesday's game and attributed the change to the way they played on the weekend against Brown.

The men's soccer team blew out an Ivy League opponent for the second time in a row this season, crushing Yale 7-0 Saturday afternoon at Chase Field. "To score seven goals in an Ivy League game is quite an accomplishment," Coach Fran O'Leary said. Revenge was sweet for the Big Green, who had suffered three straight 1-0 defeats to the Elis over the last three seasons. "We had a vendetta," admitted Dartmouth co-captain Blaine LeGere '95. The scoring spree started with a picturesque goal in the 5th minute.

Men's soccer wins big in Ivy League opener

Four second-half goals propelled the Big Green, who are now 2-0 overall in Coach Fran O'Leary's inaugural season. An evenly played first-half took a turn in Dartmouth's favor in the 37th minute when a cross by Blaine LeGere '95 was inadvertently knocked in the goal by Penn defender Alan Waxman.
