HANOVER, N.H. - Traveling north for a contest in the rain, the Harvard men's soccer team (3-11-0, 1-4 Ivy) fell to Dartmouth (5-5-5, 2-1-2 Ivy), 2-0, on Saturday afternoon at Burnham Field.
Sophomore Matt Freese made a career-best nine saves to lead the Crimson between the posts, while first-years Nico Garcia-Morillo, Håvard Hjermstad and Alfred Perez fired multiple shots apiece on goal. The Crimson offense tallied eight shots in the game, and earned five corner kicks.
The teams played scoreless until the 22nd minute when a foul in the box allowed Dartmouth to convert on a penalty kick to take a 1-0 lead. Hjermstad forced the Dartmouth goalkeeper into the first save after the intermission, but the Big Green responded with a 56th-minute tally to double the advantage.
- Matt Freese made nine saves in net, setting a new career high.
- Nico Garcia-Morillo led the team with three shots.
Next weekend, the Crimson will celebrate its senior class prior to its match with Columbia on Saturday, Nov. 3. The contest will be broadcast on ESPN+.
