HANOVER — The Dartmouth College men’s hockey team hung around for awhile in Friday night’s high-scoring affair against No. 10 Harvard, but the Crimson pulled away late to down the Big Green by a score of 6-3.
Sophomore Sean Chisholm gave Dartmouth an early lead with his sixth goal of the season, assisted by freshman Cooper Flinton and junior Joey Musa. Harvard tied it barely a minute later, and the 1-1 deadlock held through first intermission, with the Crimson taking the lead on a power play early in the second. The Big Green responded with a power play goal of their own by sophomore Braiden Dorfman, with assists from freshmen Tucker McRae and Flinton.
Harvard notched its second power play goal of the night to take a 3-2 lead into the final period, then added an even-strength goal early in the third. Dartmouth pulled one back on another power play when freshman Luke Haymes found the back of the net, senior Tanner Palocsik and Chisholm assisting. But the Crimson’s Sean Farrell scored twice down the stretch, the second of which came on an empty net.
Freshman goaltender Cooper Black made 26 saves for the Big Green (4-20-1, 3-14-1 ECAC Hockey), who host RPI and Union this coming weekend.
HANOVER — The Big Green dropped their final two home games of the season, falling 7-3 to the Saints on Friday and 4-0 to the Golden Knights on Saturday.
Dartmouth took an early lead against St. Lawrence, with senior CC Bowlby scoring the only goal of the first period off assists from freshman Izee Powell and senior Currie Putrah. Freshman Cally Dixon doubled the lead early in the second, assisted by sophomore Lauren Messier.
But the Saints scored seven unanswered goals after that, starting with a shorthanded goal by Julia Gosling. Bowlby notched her second of the game late in the third, assisted by seniors Sydney Herrington and Putrah, but it was far too little, far too late. Sophomore netminder Maggie Emerson made 23 saves, and freshman Elle Sullivan made four without allowing a goal.
Against a Clarkson team ranked in the top 10, the Big Green allowed three goals in the last five minutes of the first period, then another early in the second. Sullivan played the full game in goal and made 33 saves.
