PRINCETON, N.J. – The Dartmouth women’s squash team fell to Princeton, 9-0, in the Consolation Semifinals on Saturday morning in the Howe Cup contested at the Jadwin Gymnasium Squash Center on Princeton's campus.

The 2014 Howe Cup features the top-eight women’s squash teams in the country. The three-day event is hosted by the Tigers and features six Ivy League teams.

Princeton, the No. 5 seed, won seven of the nine matches in three games.

For the second straight day, Tori Dewey dropped a hard-fought battle at No. 8. Dewey lost the first two games, but rallied to win the third before eventually falling in the fourth game. The New Canaan, Conn., native has been Dartmouth’s strongest player at the tournament, winning three games in her two matches.

Lydie McKenzie was the other member of the team to fall in four games for Dartmouth. The sophomore took the opening game in her match at No. 7, 13-11, before losing the next three.

The Big Green conclude the event tomorrow, Feb. 23, taking on Stanford in the seventh-place match. Dartmouth is looking to avenge a 6-3 defeat to the Cardinals earlier in the season.
