#18 Dartmouth Runs Past Bears, 17-5

HANOVER, NH – #18 Dartmouth (6-2, 3-0) utilized a six-goal run in both the first and second halves to break open a 2-2 game and post a dominating 17-5 win over the Brown women's lacrosse team (5-4, 1-2) on Saturday afternoon in New Hampshire.  Brown was led by senior Paris Waterman (Newark, DE), who had three goals, one ground ball, one draw control, and one caused turnover.

After Dartmouth scored twice in the first 1:35 to grab a 2-0 lead, Waterman scored goals at 9:00 and at 13:46 to tie the score at 2-2. Exactly midway through the first period, Sarah Plumb scored her first of three goals, sparking a six-goal run for the Big Green over a span of 10:41.

Freshman Bre Hudgins (Syracuse, NY) and Waterman halted the momentum with back-to-back goals just 38 seconds apart to bring Brown to within 8-4 with 2:17 left in the first half, but the Big Green closed out the period with three straight goals to take an 11-4 lead into the break.

Plumb continued the Dartmouth scoring spree 3:12 into the second half and five more goals over the next 16:15 gave the home team a 17-4 lead with 10:33 left in the game.

Junior Julia Keller (Concord, MA) converted a feed from classmate Kaela McGilloway (Sea Cliff, NY) with 6:04 to play to account for the 17-5 final.

Freshman Grace Healy (Bellport, NY) once again led Brown on the draw, winning a game-high six draw controls, while sophomore Sidney Jacobs (Blue Bell, PA) had three ground balls to help lead the Bears' defense.

Junior Isabel Harvey (Baltimore, MD) recorded five saves in the opening half, before giving way to senior Maggie Suprey (South Boston, MA), who recorded six saves in the final 30 minutes.

After two straight away games, the Bears return home this weekend for a pair of games against Harvard (Friday at 6:00 p.m.) and #3 Duke (Sunday at 1:00 p.m.). Both games are scheduled to be played on Stevenson Field.
