THIS WEEK’S GAMES
The Dartmouth field hockey team will play the second and third games of their current respective three-game homestand this week. The Big Green host in-state rival UNH on Wednesday before hosting Columbia in an Ivy League game Saturday. 

LAST TIME OUT
Dartmouth dropped a pair of games this past weekend at Yale on Saturday and then at home on Sunday to visiting non-conference Providence.
 
SCOUTING UNH
- The Wildcats are 5-9 this season thanks to a current three-game losing streak.
- In America East play, UNH is 2-3 so far in 2017 with all three games remaining in 2017 coming against league opponents.
- Junior Katie Audino leads the team in both goals (7) and total scoring (17) this season, while Bloem van den Brekel’s five assists lead all Wildcat players.
- Kelsey Rudert is the go-to goalkeeper this fall, factoring into the final outcome in all but one game (5-8). She also has 56 saves, a .622 save percentage and a 2.79 goals against average.

AGAINST THE WILDCATS
- The only other Division I field hockey team in New Hampshire leads the overall series, 22-18-2, in the previous 42 all-time meetings.
- The Wildcats picked up a 6-2 win last year after Dartmouth had earned a 4-2 win the year before.

SCOUTING COLUMBIA
- The Lions are a game over .500 overall at this point with a 7-6 mark.
- In Ivy play, Columbia is 3-1 and is just a game back of both unbeaten Harvard and Princeton for the league’s top spot in the standings.
- Maeve Doherty not only leads her team in scoring, but is one of the top players in the Ivy League this year, ranking third in the conference with 24 points. Doherty also has seven defensive saves this year, more than double the next-best conference player.
- Michelle Thompson (8) and Lindsay Ladas (7) are tied for second and fifth, respectively, in assists amongst Ancient Eight players in 2017.
- Katie Dempsey is the team’s clear-cut No. 1 goalkeeper this season, playing in all 928 minutes, posting a 2.87 goals against average and a .703 save percentage in that time.

AGAINST THE LIONS
- Dartmouth has won 13-of-21 all-time meetings with Columbia.
- The Lions won last year’s game in New York, 5-1, while the Big Green took the previous game, 4-2, played in Hanover during the 2015 campaign.

SHE CAN DISH IT
- After going four games without one, sophomore Katie Spanos recorded an assist in each of the Green and White’s games this past weekend. Her seven helpers to this point, ranks tied for fourth in the Ivy League.
- Despite the fact that Spanos has gone four games without a goal and has scored in only three games this season, she leads the team with five tallies in 12 games.

THREE FOR THIRD
After Carmen Braceras scored her third goal of the season Saturday against the Bulldogs to put herself third on the team in tallies, Evie Bird pulled even the next afternoon with the team’s lone goal against PC.

THANKS FOR PLAYING
Senior goalkeeper Emily Wechsler made her first two career appearances and starts in the cage for the Big Green last weekend. She stopped five shots at Yale and another five at home the following day to the Friars
