Box Score

As Princeton's final chance to tie rolled across the sideline, the realization began to set in that a big opportunity had been left on a snow-lined field in Hanover, N.H., in April.

Dartmouth came from down three goals twice to upset Princeton 10-9 on Scully-Fahey Field Saturday afternoon, giving the Big Green its first Ivy win and setting up a wild two-week run for Ivy League tournament - and beyond that NCAA tournament - berths.

Princeton, which fell to 7-4 overall and 2-2 in the league, fell behind when Nikki Dynsenchuk and Cam Lee scored 29 seconds apart, turning a 9-8 Tiger lead into a 10-9 deficit with 4:40 left. Princeton had the ball with 1:29 to go, and the final chance ended with a pass that rolled across the sideline with eight seconds remaining. Darmouth then threw the ball the length of the field as time ran out.

Princeton hosts Harvard Friday at 6 on ESPNU.

IVY LEAGUE RACE - Cornell is undefeated in the league. Princeton, Yale and Harvard all have two league losses. Penn, Dartmouth and Brown all have three league losses. Had Princeton beaten Dartmouth, it would have still been able to host the league tournament and get a share of the league title simply by winning out. Now Princeton will be in a dog-fight to get into the Ivy tournament.

TURNING POINT OF THE GAME - Princeton led 8-5 midway thorugh third quarter when Luke Armour scored from Tom Schreiber, but the Tigers would score just once more in the final 22:33 of the game. Dartmouth would score five times in that stretch.

WHAT THE BOX SCORE DOESN'T TELL YOU - Princeton has four losses, and all four have been by one goal. Princeton had the lead in the fourth quarter of all four its losses.

STAT OF THE GAME - Princeton had been in double figures in every game this season prior to the loss to Dartmouth. Only the 1951 team has ever been in double figures in every game for a full season. The 11 straight games in double figures was the second-longest streak in school history, after the 1996 team did so in 13 straight games to end the year.

BONUS STAT - Princeton led for nearly 51 minutes in the game. Tom Schreiber - who had two goals and two assists - scored 45 seconds into the game as Princeton built a 3-0 lead. Dartmouth briefly tied at 4-4 in the second and at 8-8 early in the fourth. The Big Green led for 4:40, but it was the last 4:40.

NOTES - Jeff Frocaro was held without a goal for the first time in 23 games, though he did have two assists ... Jake Froccaro had three goals and an asssist ... Luke Armour, playing for injured Ryan Ambler, had two more goals after having three against Rutgers Tuesday ... Tom Schreiber has at least three points in 12 straight games dating to last year.
