HANOVER — The Dartmouth College women’s lacrosse team ran its winning streak to six games by spreading out the scoring in an 18-9 win over Connecticut at Scully-Fahey Field on Tuesday.

A season-high 10 different players dented the net for the Big Green (7-3), which handed the Huskies (2-10) their second straight defeat. Dartmouth’s prior best for spread-out scoring was eight players on four occasions.

“This was an inspiring team win,” Dartmouth coach Danielle Spencer said in a news release. “Our defense worked well together to dictate the pace of play, and our offense flowed together as a unit.”

Katie Bourque led the charge for Dartmouth with four goals and one assist. Elizabeth Mastrio scored three times with three helpers, matching her season and career bests.

Kierra Sweeney, Michelle Yu and Sophia Turchetta provided two goals apiece for Dartmouth. Schuyler Bixby, Adrie Luster, Campbell Brewer, Ellie Carson and Kathryn Giroux provided the other markers, with Luster striking for the first time in her collegiate career.

Kiera Vrindten made seven saves in 52 minutes in the net, with Katie Forman and Charlotte Wahle splitting the remaining time. Sam McKenna had a game-high three goals for UConn.

FOOTBALLDartmouth starts spring workouts

HANOVER — Looking to capitalize on a season that saw Dartmouth reach No. 15 in the country and come up one win short of an Ivy League championship, coach Buddy Teevens and his Big Green have kicked off spring workouts.

Teevens will need to replace half of his starting lineup from 2018 — six players on offense, five on defense — in preparation for this fall. Although two All-Americans (offensive lineman Matt Kaskey and defensive end Rocco Di Leo) are gone, several fifth-year seniors are expected to return to soften the blow.

Dartmouth will have 12 practices as part of the spring regimen, meeting every Tuesday and Thursday at 5 p.m. and every Saturday at 10 a.m. over the next four weeks. Spring workouts end with the annual Green-White scrimmage on May 4.
