HANOVER, N.H. - Daniel Keat headed in a Matt Carroll cross 4:31 into overtime to lift Dartmouth to a 1-0 victory over Yale in an Ivy League game on a beautiful afternoon at Chase Field. The winning goal came off a corner kick. Mike Ordonez kicked a short ball to Carroll, who then sent it toward the far post where Keat headed it in.
"This was a typical Ivy League knock down, drag out affair," said Yale head coach Brian Tompkins. "It was the kind of game that was going to be resolved by a key moment."
The Big Green (3-5-3, 1-1-1 Ivy) outshot Yale 14-9. Dartmouth goalkeeper Rowan Anders made five saves to post the shutout and become the Big Green's all-time leader in career shutouts.
Erik Geiger stopped six shots for the Bulldogs (4-7-1, 1-1 Ivy).
Five of the last six Yale-Dartmouth games have ended 1-0.
Dartmouth had the best scoring chance in the first half, but Geiger dove to his right to smother Derek Stenquist's shot from inside the box with six minutes left.
Geiger made another good stop in the second half. Carroll faked a Yale defender and fired a shot from the left wing, but Geiger knocked it away.
Markus Jackson set up Yale's best opportunity in the second half. He dribbled down the left sideline, made a nice move to cut inside. The ball eventually came to Alex Guzinski, but his shot from 15 yards out just missed the top right corner.
"We started to play better in the second half," Tompkins said. "We passed the ball much better."
The Bulldogs are back in action next Friday when they play at Cornell at 7 p.m.
"We just have to pick ourselves up and bounce back next week at Cornell," Tompkins said.
