PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Late September heat did not yield to Sunday’s match between the Dartmouth women’s soccer team as it took on Brown on the Bears’ home field.
Both teams had several shot attempts and good chances to score, but no one was able to find the back of the net and played to a 0-0 regulation score before heading into overtime. Brown’s Star White scored in the second minute of extra time, off a pass from her teammate, she passed a Big Green defender and sent in a shot from inside the 18 to the right upper post, over the hands of keeper Mariel Gordon.
“It was a tough result today,” said head coach Ron Rainey. “I think our group laid it all out there and it was a hard, Ivy League contest. I’m really happy with how we approached the game, and our intensity, but it hurts to lose early in overtime.
“These are conference games now, and we have to recover from this quickly because we have a great Princeton team coming to town this weekend,” he added.
The Big Green fall to 4-5-0 on the year and 0-1-0 in conference play, while the Bears improve to 8-2-0 and start a 1-0-0 in the Ivy League.
Brown outshot the road team 23-6, and forced Gordon to grab five saves in the Dartmouth net.
This weekend the Big Green will return to action, taking on Princeton at home on Saturday, September 30 at 1 p.m.
