Comments From Head Coach Nick Bochette:
"Obviously, we're disappointed with the loss to a lively and talented Dartmouth side today. We were coming off three very good performances and good results in our last three games and just had that little bit of trouble reproducing the consistent intensity and precision required to beat a quality team such as Dartmouth. There were plenty of positives to take away from the match, however, and we continue to be a dangerous team going forward. We will take some valuable lessons away from this game, and will put our disappointment behind us quickly as we prepare for our next challenge."
