Big Green men winless streak continues against Washington
HANOVER, N.H. -- The Dartmouth men’s team winless streak stretched to three games with a 1-0 loss to Washington in the Big Green’s home opener before a 1,210 crowd at Burnham Field Thursday night.
Washington (3-1-0) coach Jamie Clark, son of former Dartmouth and current Notre Dame coach Bobby Clark, was victorious in a homecoming.
“There’s no moral victories,” Big Green (0-1-2) coach Chad Riley said. “One of the hardest things to do in soccer is play well and lose. I think we had enough chances to win the game, but after a performance like that against a good team, I’m very proud of the group.”
In the 22nd minute, the Huskies’ David Coly scored on a breakaway, burying a shot in the lower right corner of the goal.
Late in the half, Dartmouth’s Justin Donawa shot just wide on a breakaway. In the second half, Kyle Coffee, who assisted on the Huskies goal, had a close-range shot blocked.
Late in the game, Matt Greer threatened with one of his five shots.
“He’s always so close to scoring,” Riley said. “And this start to the season has been his best by far. He’s had moments in the attack and has had a positive attitude. He a great performance today, as did a number of our guys.”
