LAST TIME OUT
Dartmouth is coming off a Saturday, double overtime, win over Princeton, 2-1. The Tigers got on the board first in the second half, and it was not long before junior Justin Donawa scored for the home team, assisted by Dawson McCartney. The score remained tied through the end of regulation and one period of overtime, when a free kick situation gave the Big Green another opportunity to score and Danilack sent a header into the net, winning the game.
