Dartmouth looks to avenge last year's loss to women's soccer

Last year some considered it a fluke.The women's soccer team made the road trip to Hanover, N.H., last season having not beaten Dartmouth since 1990 and without a win in Hanover since 1983.But when then-freshman midfielder Alex Fiore connected on a cross from then-junior midfielder Julie Shaner four minutes, 52 seconds into overtime, the Tigers pulled out a 2-1 victory and broke the losing streak.Now Dartmouth makes the trip south to Princeton to try to return the favor."Last year some people said we sort of snuck by them," junior defender and captain Kelly Sosa said.

The defense should be the story of the women's soccer team's season so far.Four games have passed and the team has yet to give up a goal.A newly re-juvenated offensive unit, however, has been the key to the Tigers' (4-0 overall, 1-0 Ivy League) success so far and played an important role in Wednesday afternoon's 2-0 victory over Lehigh (3-4) in Bethlehem, Pa."Our goal was not to let Lehigh get into the game and I think we did that," senior captain and midfielder Julie Shaner said.

Feel-good football likes family culture despite opening loss

When a friend of mine read about the football team's newly-installed Unity Council, he turned to me and asked, "Is Coach Hughes running a football team or an episode of 'Survivor?' "After thinking about who I would vote off the starting lineup, I began to think about what the council and the other feel-good innovations brought to the Tigers by head coach Roger Hughes mean to members of the team when they step on the field.
