The Game Story:
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- Ben Grinnell scored three goals as the Dartmouth men's lacrosse team snapped a six-game losing streak to Penn with a 6-1 Ivy League win Sunday at Franklin Field.

It was the Big Green's first win over the Quakers since a 21-14 decision at home in 1996. It was also Dartmouth's first win at Penn since April 8, 1995. The Big Green, now 7-1, 1-0 Ivy League, matches its best start since 1995 and also secures its first winning season since the 1995 campaign.

After Penn took a 1-0 lead in the first period, freshman Jamie Coffin scored his 17 goal of the year to knot the contest at 1-1. He later added an assist to give him 35 points, which already places him in the top five in school history for points as a freshman.

The Big Green built a 3-1 halftime advantage on second-period goals by Scott Roslyn and Darren Yulfo.

Grinnell was the lone goal scorer for the Big Green in the third period. He scored with 12:41 remaining to put the Big Green ahead, 4-1. After Penn tallied consecutive goals just a minute apart, he pushed the cushion to 5-3 with his second goal of the game.

Grinnell opened the scoring in the fourth period to extend the lead to 6-3. After Penn scored to make the score 6-4, Tom Daniels added the final tally for Dartmouth.

In the nets, Dartmouth's Andrew Goldstein made 17 saves, while Mark Gannon recorded 13 stops.

The Big Green returns to action on Saturday, April 12, when Cornell visits Scully-Fahey Field for a 1:00 p.m. contest.
