Circle These Dates

  • 3/2 (at Wagner): This turned out to be Dartmouth’s second and final win from last season. With Canisius off the schedule, the Seahawks are the only team the Big Green defeated from a year ago. They used a 6-0 run to start the second half and hold on for the one-goal victory.
  • 3/5 (vs. UMass Lowell): The River Hawks took a step in the right direction last year and finished at .500 for the first time in program history. One of their thrilling games was a double overtime finish with the Big Green, despite Dartmouth scoring the final three goals in the fourth quarter to force extra lacrosse.
  • 3/16 (vs. Binghamton): Surprisingly, this is the first time the two teams will have met. The Bearcats didn’t have a good 2018 season after surprising everyone in 2017, but will provide a good test for Brendan Callahan’s squad.
  • 3/19 (at Virginia): This was one of Virginia’s surprising contests from last season. It was a fairly close and low-scoring game early in the third quarter. But the Cavaliers woke up and ended doubling up the Big Green in Charlottesville.
  • 3/23 (vs. Harvard): Dartmouth has not won an Ivy League conference game since March 21, 2015. Their opponent: then-ranked Harvard, in double overtime. The Crimson was one of Dartmouth’s closer opponents a year ago, but had two goals in the final 5:57 to escape with another win over the Big Green.
  • 4/20 (at Penn): It would be a surprise if both teams went to double overtime again like they did a year ago. But the Big Green put up their best showing for three quarters before allowing the Quakers to get back into the game and then with the game-winner in double overtime. Dartmouth has shown they’re close to winning more games. But maybe this is the year they close some games out, especially against an Ivy League opponent.
