Key Games

2/26 @ Bryant: Dartmouth went 3-1 during the shortened 2020 season. One of those wins came against the Bryant Bulldogs, 11-8. The Big Green trailed 8-5 early in the fourth quarter before rattling off six consecutive goals to secure their first ever victory over the Bulldogs. Bryant leads the all-time series 3-1, which includes a 6-5 win in 2019. This could be another tight one between these two in 2022.

3/8 vs Vermont: The Big Green’s sole loss of the shortened 2020 campaign came against the Vermont Catamounts, 9-8, in a contest that was all knotted up at 6 at the half. Dartmouth is 6-3 in their last nine meetings against the Catammounts. This non-conference contest could be an important one for Dartmouth if they really to want to push forward.

4/30 @ Brown: Dartmouth’s last Ivy League win came against Harvard in double overtime in 2015. However, they have come close to breaking that streak in recent years. That includes a four-goal loss against the Bears during their last game of the 2019 season. The way the Ivy League looks like it could shake out in 2022, a season-ending game against a Brown team that suffers major personnel losses might be one of the Big Green’s best bet for a conference win.
