Riding a seven-game unbeaten streak, the Dartmouth men’s soccer team welcomes Vermont and Princeton to Burnham Field this week. The Big Green’s 4-0-3 record is the program’s best start since the 1987 season, when the team started 6-0-1.

Gabe v. 2.0
Saturday’s, 2-1, victory over Albany was sparked by a pair of Gabe’s scoring for the Big Green.  Senior Gabe Hoffman-Johnson and junior Gabe Stauber netted both tallies for the home squad that helped celebrate 100 years of Dartmouth men’s soccer in front a of nearly sold-out crowd.

The Cleveland Show
Sophomore keeper Stefan Cleveland made three saves in the Albany win to improve his record to 2-0-2 on the year.  In the season opener against Holy Cross, he made a season-high seven saves. Since then, the Dartmouth defense has lowered the number of shots on target. His 21 saves rank him first on the team ahead of freshman James Hickok.

Vermont Scout
Entering tonight’s contest with a 6-1-2 record, the Vermont Catamounts feature wins against Hartwick, Hofstra, The College of Charleston and Massachusetts to name a few.  In their most recent victory, a 1-0 clean sheet over Hartwick, the Catamounts scored off a throw in header by Salvatore Borea. Conor Leland has played in all nine games in the cage with a 0.54 goals against average and a 0.848 save percentage.  Brian Wright leads the team with seven points on three goals and an assist. Borea and Wright are tied for the lead in scoring with three goals.

Princeton Preview
The Princeton Tigers enter Saturday’s match with a 2-5 record on the season. The Tigers split last weekend’s set, defeating Florida International 4-2 but fell to Florida Gulf Coast 1-0 in overtime, a game seen on ESPNU. Thomas Sanner leads the squad with nine points, scoring four times and adding a helper.  Ivy League Co-Player of the Week Cameron Porter is second in team scoring with eight points.

Sideline Shakeup
In the spring, top assistant Chad Riley was promoted and named the 10th head coach of the Big Green men’s soccer program. Assistant Chase Wileman was promoted and the team added Ryan Fahey to the staff.

Looking Forward
Dartmouth will remain home to begin Ivy League Play against Princeton on Saturday at 4:30 pm, before a three-game swing on the road.
