Brown Shocks Dartmouth, Wins Ivy League

Brown takes the Ivy League Championship.

Brown University men's team pulled off a huge upset Saturday, beating Dartmouth in Hanover, NH to win the Ivy League championship.

Brown hasn't beaten Dartmouth in over 20 years, and Dartmouth has dominated the Ivy League for years. While both came into the title game having won most of their games by huge scores, Dartmouth had logged some additional wins, including beating Army, and that, along with their history, had the Big Green as favorites.

The defensive effort from Brown was massive. The Bears scored an early try and help Dartmouth tryless through the first half. Dartmouth got two penalty goals to make it 7-6 only to see Brown add a try late in the first half for a 12-6 lead.

Dartmouth eventually got a try to take a 13-12 lead, only to see Brown slot a penalty goal to make it 15-13, and that's how it ended.

"We’re playing pretty well this year," said Brown Head Coach David LaFlamme. "Tremendous effort from the boys. Super proud of them. Second team won as well which was a good ending to the day."
