Dartmouth men down UNH Wildcats
HANOVER, N.H. -- Bermuda national team midfielder Justin Donawa scored in the 71st minute as the Dartmouth men’s team snapped a four-match winless streak with a 1-0 victory over New Hampshire in a non-conference match at Burnham Field Wednesday night.
“New Hampshire (9-2-0) is a really great team,” Big Green (2-1-5) coach Chad Riley said. “Overall I’m really pleased with our performance through midterms and in between two league games, it is always going to be a tough challenge. I think the guys really took it well. UNH is one of the top teams in our region and I think it’s a good win for us. They tested us at times, but I thought we got some good chances.
“I’ve never seen a lack of confidence in this group. They know they’ve played the fifth hardest schedule in the country so far and they’ve battled well. They know there’s a lot of little things they need to do to turn things in our favor, but I’ve never questioned this group.”
Dartmouth set the pace early, pressuring James Hickok, who finished with three saves. In the 13th minute, Matt Greer shot high. In the 23rd minute, Emmanuel Arteaga sent in a threatening cross. Donawa scored his second goal of the season, finishing with a hard shot into the lower left corner of the net off a Matt Danilack pass.
