The terminology may be different but the results are the same and led to wins for the Big Green. Freshman Lilly Durbin had a career-high five tries to lead the women's rugby team to a 45-7 win over Army West Point. Senior Jeremiah Douchee used his arms and body to block two kicks in the football team's 27-26 overtime victory against Holy Cross.
Their efforts are rewarded by being named the Hanover Brick and Brew Athletes of the Week.
Each week, DartmouthSports.com will spotlight two outstanding student-athletes - one male, one female - as the Hanover Brick and Brew Athletes of the Week. Student-athletes may be chosen based upon their efforts both on and off the field of competition.
Lilly Durbin, Fr., Murrieta, Calif., Center, Women’s Rugby
In the Dartmouth women’s rugby 45-7 victory over No. 3 Army West Point on Saturday, freshman Lilly Durbin had a career-high five tries to lead the Big Green. At 14:27, she intercepted a pass and touched it down between the posts and, seven minutes later, finished a stolen lineout. With less than 10 minutes remaining in the game, Durbin added one more try for good measure, assisted by senior Frankie Sands and converted by Johnson.
Jeremiah Douchee, 5Sr, Chicago, Ill. DE, Football
Senior defensive lineman Jeremiah Douchee came up with two of the biggest plays in the 27-26, overtime victory against then-25th-ranked Holy Cross this past Saturday. First, he got a hand on a 32-yard field goal attempt with 6:09 remaining in the fourth quarter, preserving a six-point Dartmouth lead. But when the Crusaders came back and scored a touchdown to tie the score with three seconds left in regulation, Douchee was there again to reject the PAT attempt, sending the game into overtime. He was named the Ivy League and STATS FCS National Special Teams Player of the Week for his efforts, and now has five blocked kicks to his credit in his career.
