The Dartmouth women’s soccer team hosts Cornell Saturday afternoon in its final game of the season.
SCOUTING THE BIG RED
Cornell enters the contest with a 2-8-3 record, coming off a 2-0 loss at Princeton last weekend. Leading the Big Red offense is Paige Deloach who has two goals, with Jessica Ritchie, Katerina Weikert and Meera Dheer all posting one assist this season. Meghan Kennedy has played the majority of the season in the goal for Cornell recording 75 saves with 17 goals allowed and three shutouts.
LAST TIME AGAINST CORNELL
Last November the Big Green traveled to Ithaca and left with a 4-1 loss to the Big Red. Gia Parker scored the only goal for the road team in the second half. All-time, Dartmouth holds the series lead 25-11-5, but has fallen to Cornell the last three seasons.
LAST TIME OUT
Last weekend the Big Green fell to Harvard, 2-1, on the road in double overtime. The Crimson took the lead in the 19th minute and held it until the second half. Dartmouth got on the board in the 58th minute on a goal from Brittany Champagne, and neither team scored again in regulation. Heading into the second overtime period, Murphy Agnew scored the game-winning goal in the 102nd minute.
SENIORS SAY GOODBYE
Today the Big Green will honor Zainab Bakrin, Brittany Champagne, Lindsay Knutson, and captains Gia Parker and Bianca Ribi in senior day ceremonies, for their four years playing in the Green and White.
