Dartmouth’s (8-5-4, 4-1-2 Ivy League) offense looked like it was going to get something going in both the first and second overtime but just couldn’t find a way around the Brown (10-4-3, 4-1-2 Ivy League) defense, settling for a tie in its final regular season game.
By virtue of a Columbia tie with Cornell later in the evening, Dartmouth claimed a share of the Ivy League title with the Bears and will receive the automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament.
