Brown First XV victory 15-13 over Dartmouth

Brown defeats Dartmouth for the Ivy Title

Dartmouth College Brophy Field, Hanover, NH. Brown defeated Dartmouth 15-13 in a tense and hard fought battle for Ivy League supremacy in this fall 2021 League season, overcoming 25 years, yes a quarter century, without a Brown 15’s victory against the Big Green. Both teams entered this final Ivy Conference match having defeated all of their Ivy opponents. Outside the Ivy League, Dartmouth had defeated West Point 21-10 and Brown had lost to West Point 17-14. If history and this season was any indication, this match would be a high scoring affair with Dartmouth likely to win again.
