In his final collegiate game, Olentine broke the Dartmouth single-game record with 10 goals against Holy Cross at home on April 29. The senior netted five in the first half and five again in the second half with the record-tying and record-setting goals coming just seven seconds apart. Olentine became just the fifth player in Ivy League history to reach double-digits in goals in a game as he helped lift the Big Green to a 17-12 win to wrap up the 2014 season. Coming into the game, he led the team in goals this season with 11, one more than he was able to score that afternoon. His 11 points in the game were also just two shy of the conference mark held by Dartmouth’s John Waters (2G/11A) vs. Penn in 1962.
