It’s down to Dartmouth and Princeton for the Ivy League’s bid
to the Sweet 16, as Saturday the Big Green trounced Harvard 51-7 and
Princeton squeaked past Brown 22-20.
The scoreline indicates Dartmouth beat the Crimson with ease, but the regular season Dartmouth champs had trouble holding onto the ball early.
“To Harvard’s credit, they did a good job of setting the structure of the game, initially, with their forwards,” said Dartmouth’s Paul Jarvis. “But we were able to adapt pretty well, do a better job of making our tackles, repositioning, and then once we did turnover the ball, playing most of the game down in their half.”
In their fall meeting, Dartmouth beat Princeton 53-21. The winner of Saturday's final will advance to the Hanover, N.H. (Dartmouth's home) region of the Sweet 16.
