PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Sophomore Drew O’Connor set up Dartmouth’s first goal, scored its second and added an empty-netter in the Big Green’s 4-1 ECAC men’s hockey win over Brown on Saturday night.

O’Connor helped on Brendan Less’ first goal of the season at 15:02 of the opening period, scoring his first of the night just 84 seconds later. Will Graber made it 3-0 for Dartmouth (3-2-1 overall, 3-1-1 league) 30 seconds into the second stanza. O’Connor netted the empty-net clincher with 2 seconds left.

Adrian Clark made 23 saves. The Big Green is off until a Dec. 6 home date with Colgate.
