Friday, November 09, 2018

Hanover — Senior Isalys Quinones recorded a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds as the Dartmouth College women’s basketball team opened its season with a 54-41 victory over Loyola (Md.) on Friday night at Leede Arena.

Anna Luce added 10 points for Dartmouth, which led at the half, 25-19. Kealy Brown finished with eight rebounds and Cy Lippold tallied seven points, three rebounds and two assists.

Down 12-10 after one, Dartmouth took control when Luce buried a 3-pointer to begin the second. McKenna made a jumper and a free throw and Brown hit a fastbreak shot which started a 7-0 run for Dartmouth midway through the second quarter to give the Big Green a 22-14 advantage that was capped off with a layup by Quinones with 4:43 to go.

Bri Betz-White led Loyola with 13 points, while teammate Stephanie Karcz pulled down a game-high 15 rebounds.

The Big Green visits Vermont on Sunday.

Men’s Basketball

Davidson 79, Dartmouth 76

Davidson, n.c. — Kellan Grady tossed in 23 points, including eight in the final 3:43, and Jon Axel Gudmundsson scored 24 to help Davidson rally past Dartmouth.

The Wildcats (2-0) were down, 76-68, when Grady turned in a 3-point play and a layup to cut the deficit to three with 2:34 remaining. Carter Collins buried his only 3-pointer of the night — one of Davidson’s four made 3s in the game — to knot the score at 76-all with 54 seconds left.

Chris Knight missed a jumper and then fouled Grady on a 3-point attempt. The sophomore guard hit all three of his free throws to put the Wildcats out in front with 4 seconds left. Brendan Barry misfired on a 3 at the buzzer for the Big Green (1-1), which led for 19:56 in the second half.

Adrease Jackson paced Dartmouth with 16 points and eight rebounds. Ian Sistare came off the bench to score 15 on 5-of-6 shooting from 3-point range.

Gudmundsson finished with eight rebounds as the Wildcats posted a 37-30 advantage on the boards. Freshman forward Luka Brajkovic chipped in with 18 points and seven rebounds.

Men’s Hockey

Brown 4, Dartmouth 2

Providence, r.i. — Four different Bears found the back of the net as Brown (1-3-1, 1-2-1 ECAC Hockey) defeated Dartmouth (2-2-0, 2-2-0) in the Big Green’s first road game of the season.

Brady Schoo, Chris Berger, Zach Giuttari and Max Gottlieb scored for Brown, which never trailed. Will Graber and Quin Foreman scored for the Big Green.

Schoo got his first goal of the season 12:52 into the opening period, and Berger made it 2-0 at 2:44 of the second.

Graber answered back 55 seconds later with a blast to the top corner of the net for his second goal of the year.

Halfway through the third, it appeared as if Dartmouth’s Collin Rutherford drew even with a power-play goal, but the officials ruled that the Green’s Shane Sellar had interfered with Brown goalie Gavin Nieto inside the crease and prevented him from playing his position, causing the apparent goal to be waved off.

Shortly thereafter, momentum swung back to the Bears as Zach Giuttari blasted a shot from the point through a screen right off a faceoff to push his team’s lead back to two.

Foreman made it a one-goal game again just minutes later when he scored his team-leading third goal of the season, finishing off a great spin-o-rama pass from Graber along the boards out into the slot for the one-timer.

The scoring ended with a 200-foot empty-net goal from Gottlieb.

Nieto finished with 31 saves and the win, while Dartmouth junior Adrian Clark stopped 28 shots.

The Big Green’s penalty kill, which had struggled in the first three games was a perfect 4-for-4 on Friday, while the power play, which had excelled, was 0-for-6.

Dartmouth heads down I-95 to take on Yale tonight.

Women’s Hockey

RIT 5, Dartmouth 1

Hanover — RIT goalie Terra Lanteigne had 41 saves as the Tigers (2-6-3) defeated Dartmouth (2-5-0) in the first game of a two-game series.

Hunter Barnett and Brittney Gout each had a goal and an assist for RIT. Dartmouth senior Tess Bracken scored the first goal of the night and her fourth of the season, assisted by Christina Rombaut.

Dartmouth and RIT will be back in action at 3 p.m. today.

College Cross Country

Dartmouth Women Earn Spot in NCAA Meet

Amherst, n.y. — The Dartmouth women’s cross country team qualified for the NCAA Championships for the second time in as many years and an Ivy League-record 13th time in program history.

The 27th-ranked Big Green placed second on Friday morning at the Northeast Regional in suburban Buffalo to advance to next week’s national championship meet in Madison, Wis.

Dartmouth posted 88 points to claim one of the region’s two automatic berths along with 20th-ranked Columbia (41 points) on the 6-kilometer course at Audubon Golf Course.

Glennis Murphy (10th, 22:09.1) and Lauren Sapone (11th, 22:10.7) led the Green, with Georgia Fear (14th, 22:16.8) and Julia Stevenson (16th, 22:16.8) adding some immediate depth to the team scoring.

The Big Green posted 144 team points, finishing behind Syracuse (79), Iona (88) and Army (135). The top two teams automatically qualify for the NCAA Championships next weekend in Wisconsin, while others, like Dartmouth, wait to find out if they will earn an at-large berth.

The Big Green’s Quinn Cooney posted a 10th-place finish in 33:09.5 on the 10K Audubon Golf Course in suburban Buffalo. The race was run through cold, snowy, wet conditions, creating hazards for many teams on the already longer-than-normal course.

After Cooney, the Big Green picked up points from Marco Pompilj (18th, 33:32.3), Henry Raymond (29th, 33:42.6), Owen Ritz (42nd, 34:00.1) and Pat O’Brien (34:03.6).
