The Big Green traveled down to New Haven, CT this weekend to take on the Yale Bulldogs under the lights. After nearly fifteen minutes of play without a score from either side, Pat Sheehy ’20 broke the silence with a cross-field kick, masterfully gathered by fellow ’20 Gyorgy Brevnov streaking down the sideline. Brevnov laid a pass up for Fuller Winton ’19 for the try. A few minutes later, Dartmouth was again pressing into the Bulldogs’ 22m. Freshman Mikey Weir broke Yale’s line with a few shifty steps, then offloaded to Brevnov who danced into the try zone, centering the score beneath the sticks. Another series of phases took the Big Green deep into Yale’s territory once again, where Patty O’Neil ’20 finished off the scoring drive on a pass from Struan Coleman ’19 out of the scrum. Shortly after the half, Jack Badenhausen ’19, making his first appearance in a few weeks due to injury, showed that he was back to full strength, exposing holes in the opposition’s defense and setting up Skow for the try off a long skip pass from Jarret Lewis ’21. Winton took it in for the next try off a set of crisp passes through the hands just a few minutes later, securing his second hat-trick of the season with a 40-meter dash to the try zone. Weir put it to the boot once again for Winton, who scored his fourth try of the match just before the ball bounced out the back of the try zone. Gyorgy Brevnov added his second score of the night off another long run from Badenhausen ’19, who nearly had it himself before being dragged down by several Yale defenders just a meter or two short of the chalk. Skow touched down his second of the night to round out the scoring. Pat Sheehy knocked through seven conversions throughout the match, while Dartmouth’s relentless work on defense held Yale to nil. Final score: Dartmouth 59, Yale 0.
Around the Club, we often say that our success depends on far more than 15 men on the pitch. This weekend, we fielded a second side against Yale and a development side against Franklin Pierce, both bringing victories home to Cory Ford. Sunday, the boys came together to assist in clean-up efforts for the annual CHAD HERO race in Hanover, an excellent opportunity for the DRFC to give back to the wonderful Upper Valley community.
The DRFC is off this weekend and will spend the time preparing for the Homecoming match on October 27th at 1 pm against Brown University on Brophy Field. The boys are looking forward to the large turn-out of alumni, as we do every year and an exciting match against the Bears.
