Men's Soccer vs. Dartmouth (Goals)

Box Score

PRINCETON, N.J. (9/29/12) - Sophomore Cameron Porter needed just 1:45 to make good on what he had been trying to do all game. Score. Porter led the Princeton men's soccer team in shots with eight, one more than the Dartmouth team combined, as he gave the Tigers a win in the Ivy League opener against Dartmouth on Saturday, Sept. 29.

Porter took the ball down the near touchline, and used some fancy footwork to work the ball down into the box. He reached the box and turned and fired, where the ball went off goalkeeper Noah Cohen and into the goal. Junior Patrick O'Neil sent the ball down the field to Thomas Sanner who found Porter on the touchline.

Princeton outshot Dartmouth 17-7 in the game. The defense of senior Mark Linnville, sophomore Chris Benedict and junior Billy McGuinness was unstoppable. Princeton gave up just one shot on goal in the game. Despite not being credited with a save, goalkeeper Seth MacMillan earned his fourth win and made some nice plays. MacMillan came up huge in the 79th minute when he beat Dartmouth's Colin Heffron to a ball in a dead sprint.

Freshman Thomas Sanner put the Tigers on the board in the 18th minute. Porter was once again involved in the play when he sent the ball to senior Matt Sanner at midfield. Matt Sanner sent a nice through ball up the field where the defender on no chance on the speedy Thomas Sanner. Sanner fired into the far corner out of reach of Cohen.

The Tigers had a number of scoring opportunities between goals, keeping the huge crowd at Roberts Stadium lively. Cohen made six saves in the game and had a number of diving efforts.

Dartmouth would make it a 1-1 game in the 38th minute when Patrick Murray came in off the bench and was able to put away an errant deflection that came off his own centering pass.

Princeton also won the corner kick battle 9-2.

The Tigers are now 5-3 on the season and 1-0 in the Ivy League. Dartmouth falls to 3-5 overall and 0-1 in league play.

Princeton hosts Brown next Saturday, Oct. 6 at 7 p.m., as Ivy League play continues.
