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.

1959: Dartmouth Indians Tops Harvard Rugby, 9-3

The Dartmouth rugby squad handed the Crimson its second consecutive loss, 9 to 3, Saturday at Hanover, and virtually eliminated it from contention for the Eastern Rugby Union title. The Indians, undefeated this year, will probably make the trip to California in June to play the Western champions, while the Crimson will be lucky to finish second.
