Dartmouth Men Homecoming Win Over Cornell

Oct 29 2016 - 12:00pm

Hanover, NH- Dartmouth hosted Cornell this weekend for homecoming. With some tough weather conditions and a number of alumni visiting, it ended up being a hard but solid day of rugby. Coming off a win at Columbia the Big Green looked to go 6-0 in the Ivy League.

When asked about the game, Captain Hayden Aldredge stated, “In the rain and cold, we persevered for our alums, homecoming was lit.”

In an absolute downpour, Dartmouth started off the game defending against a large Cornell team. However, solid defense from Dartmouth led to a blocked kick in Cornell’s try zone and a nice play and try from Pat Sheehy. Dawit Workie connected on the conversion and put Dartmouth up 7-0. Another heads up play from Hayden Aldredge on a quick pick and go led to a 14-0 Dartmouth lead. Fuller Winton broke through a couple Cornell defenders to put one under the posts and extended the lead to 21-0. The very next Big Green possession, Struan Coleman danced through a broken Cornell defense, scoring a try and added another 7 for Dartmouth. The play of the game went to hooker Gordon Driscoll who received a ball from a lineout and stepped his way into the try zone, beating at least 7 defenders, to get his first try of the game, putting Dartmouth up 35-0 just before the half.

Dartmouth came out firing in the second half thanks to a great run from Luke Bienstock. A made conversion helped to extend the lead to 42-0. Julien Johnson followed up with a try of his own, but the first missed conversion of the day held the score to 47-0. Steven Hinshaw barreled through the Cornell defense to get another try for the Big Green and increased the lead to 54-0. A deterioration in weather led to a bit of sloppy rugby from both sides, but as time expired Max Parker punched in one last try to close out the game 61-0.

Dartmouth B side faced off against Cornell after the end of the A side game and easily handled the Big Red. Historian Jake Greenberg scored his first career try in the match. Go Jake!

Dartmouth has its first bye week next week, but will face off against Penn at home on November 12.
