THIS WEEKEND
The Dartmouth field hockey team continues its road trip with an Ivy League game Saturday at Penn.

LAST TIME OUT
•    The Big Green dropped a pair of game last weekend in Providence.
•    The team lost 3-1 at Brown before falling, 5-1, at PC the next afternoon.

GOAL SCORERS IN RHODE ISLAND
•    Tatum Schultz: Scored the team’s lone goal at Brown, recording her second in as many games as she also notched a marker at home against UMass Lowell a week before.
•    Holley Cromwell: A week after scoring her first career goal in the comeback against the River Hawks, Cromwell once again found the back of the cage in a non-conference game as she scored the only Big Green tally against the Friars on Sunday afternoon.

SCOUTING PENN
•    The Quakers are 3-6 overall this season and 1-1 in Ivy games.
•    A 6-2 loss at Harvard last weekend evened the team’s conference mark after opening Ancient Eight play with a 5-2 home win against Cornell two weeks ago.
•    Madison Jiranek leads the way with 10 points on five goals, both team highs through nine games.
•    Gracyn Banks’ three assists are the most on the roster in 2019 thus far.
•    In goal, Ava Rosati has played all 529 minutes in net and has a 2.95 goals against average to go along with a .612 save percentage.

AGAINST THE QUAKERS
•    Dartmouth has had a bit of a rough time against their Philadelphia counterparts in recent years.
•    Penn has won the last four meetings between the two since the 2015 season.
•    In three of those games (2015, ’16 and ’18), the Quakers have prevailed in a heart-breaking double-overtime contest, including last year’s 3-2 game in Hanover.

INCHING CLOSER
•    Senior and team captain Katie Spanos inched closer to moving up in Dartmouth’s all-time scoring list with an assist at Brown.
•    Spanos now has 67 career points, she trails Lisa Masini ’13 for seventh all-time. Masini finished her career with 70 points from 2009-12.
•    With one more goal, Spanos would also move into a tie with Holly Burks ’81 and Kate Perle ’88 for ninth at Dartmouth in goals scored with 26. Spanos currently has 25 for her career with four this season.
•    She will also move into the top-10 in assists at Dartmouth with two more.

A WIN WOULD…
•    â€¦Be much better than a loss.
•    â€¦Be the first of the season against an Ivy League foe.
•    â€¦Be the first at Penn since Oct. 1, 2011 (4-2).
•    â€¦Be the 364 in program history (363-347-33).
