HANOVER — In a rematch of last year’s national championship game, the result was the same as the Dartmouth College rugby team defeated Army, 24-15, at Brophy Field on Saturday.

The game was scoreless for the first 20-plus minutes before junior Anjali Pant scored two tries in a seven-minute span, both with successful conversions by senior Kristin Bitter. Tries by freshman Simone Bautista and Bitter helped the Big Green put it away.

Dartmouth (3-0) is back on the road Saturday to take on Mount St. Mary’s.

HANOVER — After falling in straight sets to the Tigers on Friday night, the Big Green defeated the Quakers in four sets on Sunday in a nationally televised match.

Against Penn, the Big Green took the first two sets, dropped the third, then put the match away in the fourth. Blain led the way with 13 kills and Gibbs added 10. Dartmouth got 21 assists from senior Mackenzie Arent and 19 from junior Karen Murphy, to go along with 14 digs from sophomore Emma Engstrom.

Dartmouth (10-3, 2-1 Ivy League) remains home this weekend, welcoming Brown on Friday and Yale on Saturday.

A pair of first-half goals by the Bears sunk Dartmouth in Saturday’s 2-0 home loss, then a late push by the Wildcats buried the Big Green in Sunday’s 5-2 defeat in Durham.

Each team put four shots on goal in the Brown game, but the Bears took seven penalty corners to Dartmouth’s three, scoring the opening goal on one just five minutes in.

Junior midfielder Bronwyn Bird and senior defender Myah Pease each scored an equalizing goal against UNH off a corner, but the Wildcats took the lead for the third time just before the half and then pulled away after the break. UNH put 15 shots on goal to the Big Green’s five despite Dartmouth’s 7-4 edge in corners.
