Quevedo Scores For Yale Early in Second Half
For the second straight year, Yale earned a draw with perennial Ivy power Dartmouth. Saturday's 1-1 tie, though, may have offered a bit more evidence of the resurgence of the Yale program. First, it came on the road, and second, the Bulldogs had the edge in play.
Yale outshot the Big Green 17-9 and had a 4-1 advantage in corner kicks.
"I thought it was a another very good performance by us as Dartmouth is probably the toughest place to win in the league," said Kylie Stannard, The 5K Corral Head Coach of the Bulldogs. "I can't ask much more from our players, and I'm very proud of their effort and mentality. That was an extremely physical game and Dartmouth tried to impose themselves right away but not only did we adapt to that and respond, we controlled the majority of the play and had the better chances. We were better with our restarts tonight but still need to be a little sharper with our shots on goal."
Last year in New Haven, Dartmouth scored the first two goals before the Bulldogs had to stage a late rally to earn a point.
Less than 10 minutes later, Dartmouth's Yima Asom tied it.
Dartmouth nearly took the lead at 81:09 but Dawson McCartney's shot deflected off the post.
The Bulldogs had the better chances the rest of the way, getting the final three shots of the second half.
Yale outshot the Big Green 2-1 in the two, 10-minute overtime periods.
"This was Dartmouth's fifth game in OT and just our second, so I was impressed with our fitness and domination of the overtime periods," Stannard said. "I'm also really proud of how we defended and really limited Dartmouth's counter-attack. Great resilience from the guys tonight."
Goalkeeper Tom Wallenstein was forced to make only one save for the Bulldogs.
Henry Stusnick and Chris Palacios combined to stop five shots for Dartmouth.
Dartmouth has earned at least a share of the Ivy title in each of the last four years.
The Bulldogs take a break from Ivy play when they host Vermont on Tuesday. Kickoff at Reese Stadium is slated for 5:30 p.m.
