April 6, 2003

HANOVER, NH - The women's lacrosse team fell to 1-5 on the season and 1-1 in the Ivy League on Sunday afternoon, after dropping a 17-11 decision to the 13th-ranked Dartmouth Big Green.

The teams traded goals for a 2-2 tie with 11 minutes gone before the Big Green scored four of the next five to take a 6-3 lead with 13:55 remaining in the first half. Senior Bekah Rottenberg, who finished the game with four goals and two assists, netted her second of the game just 10 seconds later to cut the Big Green lead to two, but that would be the closest the Bears would get for the remainder of the half, heading into the break trailing 11-5.

Dartmouth opened the second half with three unanswered goals, taking a 14-5 advantage with 19:29 left on the clock. However, Rottenberg and juniors Christine Anneberg, who finished with three goals, and Emily Blanton each scored for Brown in a span of 2:06 to cut Dartmouth's lead to 14-8.

The two teams traded two goals each over the next 5:11, with Rottenberg and Anneberg each scoring for Brown, as Dartmouth held onto a 16-10 lead with 7:49 remaining.

Sophomore Sarah Passano, who had two goals, and freshman Kate Staley also scored for Brown, while senior Maggie Connolly and junior Laurel Pierpont each tallied one assist.

In net, sophomore Julia Southard stopped 11 shots for the Bears.

Brown continues action on Wednesday, April 9, hosting Holy Cross at 7:00 p.m. on Stevenson Field.
