Hanover — Justin Donawa crossed, Wyatt Omsberg knocked the ball over and Matt Danilack headed it into the net four minutes into double overtime as the Dartmouth College men’s soccer team pulled out a 2-1 win over Princeton on Saturday in its Ivy League opener at Burnham Field.

“We’re delighted with the result,” Dartmouth head coach Chad Riley said in a news release. “Princeton is a much better team than the results have shown, we knew that was going to be a hard game, obviously it took us to overtime. They are a very good team that really pushed us to our limits.”

The score remained tied at 0-0 until Tigers’ leading scorer, Jeremy Colvin, broke the silence in the 53rd minute. Donawa answered in the 62nd minute, scoring on a header off a deep pass from Dawson McCartney.
