Big Green fall to Colgate

If the Dartmouth football team was trailing by four points with less than five minutes to go and Jay Fiedler '94 was leading the team down the field, it was almost assumed that Dartmouth would end up on the right side of a fourth-quarter comeback. But Fiedler has made the big step up to the National Football League, and two late drives led by new quarterback Ren Riley '96 came up short, as Dartmouth (0-1 overall, 0-0 Ivy League) fell 20-16 to Colgate University in soggy Hamilton, N.Y. The game looked like it was over when, with eight minutes left, Brian White '95 fumbled a punt, giving Colgate the ball on the Dartmouth 12-yard line. But with Colgate driving for a clinching touchdown, Tim Cross '96 came up with a fumble, giving the Big Green the ball on their own seven. Riley then led the team on an efficient 90-plus-yard drive -- a 27-yard completion to David Shearer '95 left the Big Green just two yards away from the go-ahead touchdown. On fourth and goal from the three, Riley started running the option, but slipped on the wet field, giving Colgate the ball back.
