First game of the D1A season for both teams at Dartmouths gorgeous grass pitch. Weather was cloudy but semi-warm 65 degrees. Dartmouth kicked off to Army to begin the match who were able to capitalize on their possession quickly. Army seemed to have control the game and would score a couple quick tries, while Dartmouth struggled to find their boot after a few failed penalty attempts. Army was penalized with a red card for a careless and reckless challenge in the air shortly before half time. Despite Army's red and Dartmouth struggling with their penalty kicks, the half ended even at 15-15. Army entered the second half with a resurgence and capitalized within the first minute to score. Dartmouth took a few minutes to recognize that they were up a man, and slowly gathered moment. After 2 more army scores, Dartmouth finally found the boot and had a breakaway try for a 95 meter try. Despite being down a man for another yellow for an intentional knock on, Army was able to hold their defense and keep Dartmouth from scoring to tie the game within the last 10 minutes.
