NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Dartmouth women’s soccer team held tight through a tie in regulation, before a goal scored by Yale in the first 10 minutes of overtime, sealing a 2-1 win.
Both teams were scoreless in the first half, but the home team jumped out on the board in the 53rd minute shortly after halftime. Freshman Bonnie Shea scored her second goal of the season in the 61st minute of play, tying it up on an assist from Remy Borinsky.
After ending regulation with the score at 1-1, it took nine minutes of overtime for the Bulldogs’ Ariel Chavarin to score a goal and end the game.
“I feel for our team right now because our effort, heart and intensity is right there, and we are not getting the final result,” said head coach Ron Rainey. “I’m proud of them coming back from one goal down on the road, and then how we played in long stretches. Hats off to Yale on their goal and win. We want to have a quick turnaround and get ready for Holy Cross.”
The Big Green fall to 5-7-0, with a 0-3-0 mark in conference action, while Yale improves to 8-3-1 overall and 2-1-0 in Ivy League play.
Freshman goalkeeper finished the game with four saves having played the entire 99 minutes. Dartmouth tallied an 11 total corner kicks, and outshot Yale 16 to 14, but the home team’s defense kept goal attempts and chances from being fruitful.
The Big Green will continue their road stint next week, traveling to Holy Cross for a Tuesday night matchup at 7:30 p.m.
