Harvard University: 0    Dartmouth College: 20

Harvard v Dartmouth is an Ivy League (D1 Collegiate Men) League match. It was played at Harvard's new rugby-only facility on a turf-field. The match was what one would expect at this level: Decent attacks, strong defense, & difficult to score. However, there were some execution problems by both sides that could be from early-season synchronization issues.

The majority of the match was played in Harvard's end of the field. Credit Harvard's defense for denying Dartmouth more points. Harvard made some incursions into Dartmouth's end. These were not long-lasting.

The tightly played first half had two Dartmouth scores: A try at the 15th minute and a penalty at the 29th minute. 0-8 Half.

The second half was just as tight. A Yellow Card for dangerous tackle was issued to Harvard's outside-center at the 59th minute. This gave Dartmouth an advantage. Two tries were scored while they were 1-player up: a converted try at the 60th minute and an unconverted try at the 66th minute. 0-20 Full.
