Box Score

HANOVER, NH - Dartmouth (2-4-0, 2-4-0) scored three first period goals en route to a 3-2 victory over Brown (2-3-0, 2-3-0) on Friday evening at Thompson Arena. The game was the first road contest of the season for the Bears, who have now lost seven straight to the Big Green.

Dartmouth took the first lead of the game, just 1:17 into the contest when Eric Przepiorka knocked the puck past sophomore Adam D'Alba (Glencoe, IL) on his stick side off a centering pass from J.T. Wyman. The Big Green increased their lead to 2-0 at 8:45 of the first, when David Jones scored on Dartmouth's first power-play chance of the night. With just four seconds remaining in the period, the Big Green added their third of the night, also on the power-play, when Mike Ouellette came in off the bench and one-timed the puck into the net from the blue-line after Brown had attempted to ice it.

The second period was more of the same, with Dartmouth dominating the Bears, but senior Jarrett Robertson (Kingston, ONT) scored his second goal of the year to put Brown on the board with 7:30 remaining in the period. Sophomore Sean Hurley (Rutland, VT) cleared the puck out of the zone to senior Joe Bauer (Apple Valley, MN) along the right wing. Bauer passed the puck up ice to Robertson, who beat his defender, and snuck the puck behind goalie Mike Devine to put the Bears on the board.

Dartmouth took a 5:00 penalty with just over 5:00 left in the game and a 2:00 penalty with 4:30 remaining, and Hurley tallied a goal off a pass from freshman Eric Slais (Fenton, MO) on the two-man advantage at 17:05. The Bears pulled D'Alba for the extra attacker with 30 seconds remaining, but Brown couldn't net the tying goal.

D'Alba finished with 35 saves as Brown was outshot 38-19 for the game. The Bears have an off day, before returning to action on Sunday, November 20, when they face Harvard in a 3:00 p.m. contest. The game will be televised live on ESPNU.
