Is Dartmouth leaving a door open in 2015?
After Dartmouth's three straight losses at home in the last two weeks to East Coast Rugby Conference perennial powers Boston College and American International College and then Navy, is this the year that another team in the Ivies breaks through? Dartmouth has won the men's Ivy Rugby Conference title each year since 2008. In 2008 Harvard defeated Dartmouth in OT 28-25. The tournament held at Brown that year was a two day affair. In actuality, since the league has moved to the present season-long contest, beginning in 2010, Dartmouth has reigned supreme.
So, Brown and Harvard meet Saturday morning at Harvard. We'll see how the match turns out and if either team can challenge Dartmouth for the league title this year.
