Dartmouth (2-0) vs. Princeton
Date: Saturday, Sept. 30
Time: 11 a.m.
Location: Hanover, N.H. – Brophy Field
Dartmouth women’s rugby will host its third straight home match on Saturday, welcoming Princeton to town for a 11 a.m. contest on Brophy Field.
LAST TIME OUT
The Big Green improved to 2-0 with a 45-7 victory over Army West Point last weekend. Lilly Durbin had a career-high five tries, while Kat Ramage had four conversions and an assist. Also playing a part in the victory were Idia Ihensehkien with her two tries and Camille Johnson and her conversion.
Right from the beginning, the match was in Dartmouth’s favor. Ihensehkien opened scoring in the fourth minute and, following a good conversion from Ramage, it was Durbin’s turn. At 14:27, she intercepted a pass and touched it down between the posts and, seven minutes later, finished a stolen lineout. Two more good conversions by Ramage made it a 21-0 game heading into the second half.
Just as she did in the first half, Ihensehkien got things started with a try, with the assist going to Ramage. Durbin came back for more, diving over the line to make it a 31-0 match. Army scored its first and only try of the match and, with a good conversion, was trailing, 31-7. However, Durbin got her fourth try of the day soon after to put Dartmouth comfortably ahead, 38-7.
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.
After taking down No. 1 Quinnipiac (22-17) to start the season and the third-ranked Black Knights (45-7) last weekend, Dartmouth is expected to take over as the top-ranked team in the country in the unofficial rankings.
