The Dartmouth women’s soccer team travels to Harvard for a final Ivy League road match on Saturday afternoon.
SCOUTING THE CRIMSON
The Crimson are coming off a 6-1 loss to No. 17 Princeton last weekend. Linda Liedel was the only Harvard player able to get through the Princeton defense and score. Liedel is tied with three other players on the squad who have all scored one goal apiece this season, to lead the Crimson offense. Murphy Agnew is leading the offense in assists with two. Junior Danielle Etzel and sophomore Kat Hess have split time in the goal, recording a combined .625 save percentage and goals against average of 2.40.
LAST TIME AGAINST HARVARD
Last October, the Crimson came to Hanover and left with a 2-0 win. Harvard struck first when Rachel Garcia scored in the 36th minute and kept the lead into halftime. While the Dartmouth defense held strong, the Crimson was ready to score again and did so on a goal from Margaret Purce in the 62nd minute extending the lead. The Big Green had a couple of good shot chances, but was unable to get into the net.
LAST TIME OUT
Dartmouth is coming off a 3-0 loss to Columbia last weekend. The Lions scored two goals, one in the first period and one in the second, followed by an own goal from the Big Green while a defender was trying to clear the box.
BETWEEN THE PIPES
Freshman keeper Mariel Gordon has played the majority of minutes in the net for the Big Green, recording a save percentage of .718, a goals-against average of 1.37, with 20 goals allowed in 15 games and three shutouts.
Dartmouth will return home for a Senior Day matchup against Cornell next weekend, at 5 p.m. at Burnham Field.
