Campbell's 17 Saves Give Dartmouth First Win
from press release
FAIRFIELD, Conn. — The Dartmouth men's lacrosse team traveled to Sacred Heart on Saturday and won, 9-7, for its first victory of the season. The win improved the Big Green to 1-1 on the season and Sacred Heart dropped to 1-2 on the year.
The goalie doesn't always get the credit in lacrosse but junior Fergus Campbell (New Canaan, Conn.) played a stellar game to give the Big Green a two-goal victory. Campbell made 17 saves to stifle the Pioneer offense. While Campbell was busy defending the net, the Dartmouth offense had seven different players record a goal in the victory.
Dartmouth scored the only goal in the first period, when junior Kip Dooley (Minneapolis, Minn.) netted his first goal of the season. In the second period, the Pioneers took a 2-1 lead after two quick goals in the first six minutes. The Big Green responded with four unanswered goals to end the period on a 4-0 run, and take a 5-2 lead heading into halftime.
At the start of the second half, the scoring for Dartmouth continued with the first two goals coming from the Big Green to stretch the lead to 7-2. Sacred Heart tried to come back over the last period and a half, but a late man-down goal by Nikki Dysenchuk (Darien, Conn.) gave Dartmouth enough to secure the victory.
Dartmouth returns to action on Sunday, when the Big Green play against Mercer in a neutral site contest in Darien, Conn. at 1 p.m.
