HAMDEN, Conn. — Izzy Glennon and Allie Winstanley struck for second-half goals to power the Dartmouth College women’s soccer team to a 2-0 shutout of Quinnipiac on Sunday afternoon.

Mariel Gordon anchored the back with a three-save shutout for the Big Green (5-1-0).

“We grinded out a win today,” Dartmouth coach Ron Rainey said in a news release. “Really proud of how we went on the road and played an organized defensive team and stayed composed both offensively and defensively. We took chances today and made them count when we got them. It was a great win for the team.”

Gordon had early help from her back line, which knocked down back-to-back bids by the Bobcats (4-3-0) in the fourth minute. The offense responded after the break.

Zoe Boocock sent a 56th-minute free kick to Glennon to knock home for her second goal of the season. The Big Green’s Tracey Mills forced a Quinnipiac save in the 73rd minute, but Winstanley followed up a minute later for the clincher.

Dartmouth returns home to Burnham Field for a Thursday night encounter with Rhode Island.

FIELD HOCKEY Dartmouth 2, Holy Cross 1 (OT)

WORCESTER, Mass. — Senior captain Katie Spanos scored the overtime winner to move into the top 10 in career scoring and send the Big Green broke through into the win column at Hart Field to break a three-game losing streak.

Freshman Amélie Perrier posted her first varsity point on the deciding goal, which came six minutes into the extra session.

Spanos, meanwhile, moved to 60 career points with the goal, leaving her tied for eighth place in program history.

Sophomore Gracyn Campbell put Dartmouth in the lead just before halftime, deflecting in a rebound shot from a penalty corner. The Crusaders (2-3-0) answered just 27 seconds later through Minke Koomen.

Dartmouth (1-3-0) begins a four-game homestand against New Hampshire on Friday and Merrimack on Sunday.

The Lions nipped Bucknell by a shot for team honors.

Turner shot 71-72-73—216 for the two-day tournament, posting birdies on two of his first seven holes but dropping shots on seven of his final 10. Sophomore Charles Petrie, who shared the individual lead after Saturday’s first round, eventually tied for 17th at 218 (69-74-75).

The Big Green returns home to host the Dartmouth Invitational this weekend at the Hanover Country Club.

WOMEN’S GOLF Big Green fifth at home

HANOVER — The Big Green moved up two spots in the teams standings to place fifth out of 13 schools at the Dartmouth Invitational at Hanover Country Club.

Dartmouth went from a tie for seventh to solo fifth at 24-over 600 thanks to a team 292 on Sunday that tied for the third-best squad score. Kaitlyn Lees had the big day for the Big Green, shooting a 1-under 71 to share a team-best 11th place at 3-over 147 for the 36-hole tournament.

Harvard’s Chloe Royston shared the low round of Sunday, a 6-under 66, and won the individual medal at 8-under 136, beating Yale defending champ Ami Gianchandani by five shots.

The Crimson also won the team tournament by 14 strokes over Stetson.

Dartmouth heads to the Princeton Invitational on Sept. 28-29.

AMATEUR GOLFPelletier, Pleat out at U.S. Mid-Am

PARKER, Colo. — Lebanon's Pat Pelletier and former Dartmouth College golfer James Pleat missed the match-play cut on Sunday at the United States Golf Association Mid-Amateur Championship.

Pelletier, playing out of the Quechee Club, hampered himself with a first-round 82 at Colorado Golf Club on Saturday.

The former New Hampshire player of the year had a better Sunday at the event's companion site, CommonGround Golf Course in nearby Aurora, but a 3-over-par 73 wasn't enough to erase Saturday's damage.

He finished stroke-play qualifying at 13-over 155, tied for 168th place in the 264-golfer field.

Pleat, of Nashua, N.H., saw a legitimate bid to make match play go by the wayside at Colorado GC on Sunday. After a top-10 start to the tournament on Saturday, Pleat soared to a 12-over 84 for a two-day 152 that left him tied for 127th, five shots off the cut line.

The top 64 golfers from stroke play advanced to matches starting Monday.
