Key Games

2/18 @ Merrimack: Dartmouth opens the season up against the Merrimack Warriors for the fourth consecutive season. Last spring, the Warriors defeated the Big Green 8-6 in Hanover in what ended up being the worst lost of the season for Brendan Callahan’s squad. Dartmouth will look to return the favor in North Andover this spring

3/19 @ North Carolina: The biggest non-conference test for the Big Green will come on March 19th as they travel South to play the North Carolina Tar Heels. It will be the first meeting between the two since 2017. Dartmouth getting a win or coming close to one against this Tar Heels squad will be a good sign of growth.

4/1 @ Cornell: Dartmouth begins the month of April with a road game against Cornell in what will be a rematch of the Big Green’s closest Ivy League contest last season; an 8-7 Big Red win in a game where the Big Green’s Mitchell Myers went 62% at the faceoff dot. Dartmouth will be looking to come out on top this spring.

4/15 vs Princeton: The second closest game Dartmouth played against Ivy League competition last season came against the Princeton Tigers in a game that yielded a 12-10 Princeton win. Mitchell Myers was, again, a big part of that effort with a 70% day at the dot.
