THIS WEEKEND
The Dartmouth field hockey team plays on the road Saturday at Yale in the lone Ivy League game of the weekend, only to return home Sunday to take on Maine in Hanover at 1 p.m.

LAST TIME OUT
•    The Big Green were done in by Penn, 4-3, in overtime on Saturday in Philadelphia.
•    It was the fifth time in the last seven meetings between the two that the Quakers bested the Green in a game that required overtime.

GOAL SCORERS IN PHILLY
•    Katie Spanos: Scored her fifth goal of the season in the opening minutes of the second quarters. The marker was the 26th of her career, moving her into a tie for ninth all-time at Dartmouth with Holly Burks ’81 and Kate Perle ’88. She’s one back of tying Ellen Remsen ’79 for eighth.
•    Carmen Braceras: Her team-leading sixth goal of the season opened the scoring for Dartmouth in the second half and tied the game at 2-2. She has now matched her total goal output from the last two seasons combined when she scored three times as both a sophomore and junior, respectively. Seven goals in her rookie season of 2016 are her single-season career high.
•    Katie Persin: The fourth-quarter go-ahead goal was her second of the season and the first since UNH on Sept. 20. It was her eighth career goal.

SCOUTING YALE
•    The Bulldogs are 2-9 overall and 0-3 this season in Ancient Eight games.
•    The team is in the midst of a six-game losing streak following a 3-2 loss Monday versus Bucknell at home.
•    Imogen Davies and Olivia Levieux are tied for the team lead with 11 points each. Levieux leads the way with five goals, while Davies has a team-high five helpers.
•    Yale has only netted five goals in its three Ivy games so far, but Levieux has netted three.
•    In goal, Sydney Terroso has played all but 30 minutes this season. In that time, she has posted a 2.45 goals against average and .735 save percentage.

SCOUTING MAINE
•    Maine comes to Hanover on Sunday after starting the weekend at home Friday against Vermont.
•    Coming into the weekend, the Black Bears are 4-8 overall.
•    Brianna Ricker is one of the top goal scorers in the region this season, having found the back of the cage 11 times. She has 23 points to lead the team, posting more than two times the total of her next closest teammate.
•    Mia Borley has played in 701-of-725 minutes in goal in 12 games. In that time, she has a 2.57 goals against average and a .630 save percentage.

OVERTIME!
•    Last week’s game at Penn marked the fifth overtime game in 11 outings this season for the Green and White.
•    This year’s senior class played in just six OT games in their first three seasons.
•    Much of the reason behind the higher number of games needing one or two extra periods surrounds the new timing system that has shortened regulation by 10 minutes.

A WIN WOULD…
•    â€¦Be much better than a loss.
•    â€¦Be the first of the season against an Ivy League foe (against Yale).
•    â€¦Be the 364 in program history (363-347-33).

FOLLOW ALONG
•    Both games this weekend will be carried live on ESPN+.
•    Fans can also track all the action on Twitter and Instagram by following the team’s official accounts: @DartmouthFH.

WHAT’S AHEAD?
•    The Big Green will host Columbia next Saturday, Oct. 26 at 11:30 a.m. in a game that will also serve as the centerpiece for Alumni Weekend.
