The Game Story:

NEW HAVEN, Conn. Senior attacker Scott Roslyn scored a goal with four seconds left in the game as the Dartmouth men's lacrosse team registered a 9-8 win over Yale at the Soccer-Lacrosse Stadium.

Roslyn's fourth goal of the game was the third in the last 37 seconds of the Ivy League contest. His second tied the game at 6-6 with 11:32 left, and his third gave the Big Green (8-2 overall, 2-1 Ivy) its first lead since the visitors opened the scoring in the first quarter. The goal that made it 7-6 came with 3:29 on the clock was controversial because the head of Roslyn's stick came off during the play. The officials ruled that it came off after the ball crossed the goal line.

But Yale, which overcame a 1-0 deficit with five straight goals, came right back with a score of its own. Ned Britt hit Scott Kenworthy with a lead pass and the junior Yale attack man slipped it past Andrew Goldstein (19 saves) at 2:13 to even the score.

Ryan Danehy gave the lead back to the Green with a 25-foot shot that rose over the shoulder of Roy Skeen (14 saves) with 37 seconds left. The Bulldogs were called for a penalty on the play and went down a man trying to save the game. After Dan Kallaugher won the faceoff and got the ball to Pat Moylan, the Eli senior fired a high shot past Goldstein 10 seconds later to tie it up at 8-8.

Dartmouth's Justin Weinstein (2 assists) won the next faceoff and got the ball to Tom Daniels (3 assists) who found Roslyn, who was standing 10 feet from the crease.

Eight different players scored goals for Yale (7-4, 1-3), including Christian Jensen's first collegiate score. Dan Brillman had a goal and two assists on the day. Yale, which outshot Dartmouth 46-34, had nine more ground balls than the Green. Yale's Kallaugher, one of the top faceoff men in the country, had another great day with 13 wins in 20 attempts.

Dartmouth overcame a 5-1 deficit with three straight scores and six of seven down the stretch.
