With the win, Dartmouth finished the season with an overall record of 8-2—its best record in 17 years. The Big Green finished second in the Ivy League, with a record of 6-1 in league play.

Dartmouth’s win on Saturday was its fifth in a row against Princeton. The victory was also the 100th career win for Big Green Head Coach Buddy Teevens ’79.

Men’s Soccer Falls to Providence in Second Round of NCAA’sThe Dartmouth men’s soccer team lost to Providence College 3-0 in the second round of the NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Tournament on Nov. 23.

“Tonight was tough. I thought we were very good in the first half but we didn’t capitalize on our opportunities,” said head coach Chad Riley. “It is always an abrupt ending unless you are the last team standing.  It is certainly hard to process right now, but I couldn’t be prouder of our team. They have competed all year so well, and continued to grow all year.”

Dartmouth ended the season with a 12-5-2 overall record and a share of the Ivy League title.

Dartmouth was the lone Ivy League representative at nationals on either the men’s or women’s side. The Big Green earned an at-large bid to the championships by finishing third at the NCAA Northeast Regional on Nov. 14. Earlier this fall, the Big Green captured its second straight Ivy League Heptagonal Championship.
