For a brief moment Saturday it looked like it was going to be a Dartmouth v. Harvard showdown in both the men's and the women's final of the 2007 Royall Lyme Ivy League Championships.
On the men's side it will be Harvard and Dartmouth --- AGAIN --- as Dartmouth makes their third trip to the finals in as many years. For the women though, the surprise of the day has to be 5th seed Brown. Brown out talented a well coached Princeton side 14-7 to move on to a second round game where they completely annihilated last year's Ivy Champion Radcliffe (Harvard) 42-nil.
