College Roundup: Zeroes Again for Dartmouth, UNH Men’s Soccer

Hanover — It seems whenever the Dartmouth and New Hampshire men’s soccer teams collide lately, nothing happens ... at least not on the scoreboard.

For the second straight time — the other being last November’s NCAA Tournament match — the Big Green and Wildcats couldn’t dent the net through 110 minutes of regulation and overtime play at Whitey Burnham Field. The NCAA game required a penalty-kick tiebreaker; there is no such remedy in regular-season play, leaving the Granite State rivals stuck with a scoreless draw.

Dartmouth (0-3-2) has yet to record a victory for new coach Bo Oshoniyi, although the Big Green has held on for ties in its last two starts.

New Hampshire (5-1-1) got stronger as the night progressed, outshooting its hosts in the second half and overtime, 17-7. UNH owned a 6-0 edge in the 20 minutes of extra time but found no solution for Dartmouth goalkeeper Henry Stusnick (five saves). Wildcat counterpart Lars Huxsohl posted a three-save shutout.

Dartmouth 98, Brown 7

Hanover — Fresh from earning the top spot in the national rankings last week, the Big Green (3-0) decimated the Bears (1-1) at Brophy Field with the program's second-highest scoring game in history.

Nine different Dartmouth players contributed to the team's 14 tries. Freshman Emily Henrich led the charge with three tries and six conversions for a career-best 27 points. Junior Allison Tong and two sophomores, Kathleen Mulligan and Grace Player, provided their first career tries.

Only a 110-0 rout of Columbia two years ago tops Dartmouth's scoring output from Saturday. The Big Green hosts Harvard on Saturday at 11:30 a.m. in a key Ivy League match.

New London — Jordan Teixeira scored two goals, netting the game-winner in overtime, as the Chargers (4-2-0 overall, 1-1-0 league) took a Great Northeast Athletic Conference win.

All of the scoring came after halftime. Teixeira put Colby-Sawyer in front 20 minutes into the second half, to which J&W’s Natalie Rivas answered with a penalty stroke in the final minute of regulation. Teixeira finished a Julia Lanctot pass with 4:50 left in the extra session for the win.

Abby Ladd made three saves for the Chargers, who host Castleton on Wednesday.

New York — The Big Green (4-6) wrapped up a weekend in New York with a second straight split of matches, this time at Fordham’s Battle of the Big Apple.

Dartmouth swept St. Francis-Brooklyn to open the day, 25-16, 25-16, 25-19, to give coach Gilad Doron his 200th career coaching victory. Francesca Meldrum, Tola Akimwumi, Emma Moffet and Bella Hedley all hit .500 or better to key the Big Green attack.

The host Rams took the Big Green in four sets (27-25, 25-21, 20-25, 25-20). Nicole Liddle paced Dartmouth with a double-double of 17 kills and 13 digs, scoring 18 points in the process.
