Cats, Big Green Rumble, Cats Lose

HANOVER, N.H. – Mike Vidmar scored with 4:28 left in the second overtime to give Dartmouth a 2-1 win over Vermont in men’s college soccer at a rainy Chase Field on Thursday afternoon.

Tony Anderson opened the scoring in the 34th minute with his second goal of the season, and the first for the Catamounts in four games. From 10 yards out, he converted a low right-to-left cross from freshman Danny Broughan. The assist was the first collegiate point for Broughan.

The Big Green (3-0-2) began to apply heavy pressure in the second half outshooting the Catamounts, 11-3 in the period. In the 67th minute, Dartmouth’s Mark Limpert picked up a loose ball in the crease and fired it home to tie the game. Vermont had a pair of excellent chances to win the game late in regulation as a point blank bid by Broughan went wide and a defender blocked Patrick Wyld’s bid.

In the second overtime, Dartmouth turned up the heat as Cats keeper David Sullivan kept the game alive with a big save in the 101st minute before Vidmar ended the game. After a Big Green free kick into the box from 25 yards out, Damien Quinn gathered the ball in a scramble and fed it back to Vidmar who shot high to Sullivan’s left from 15 yards away.

Sullivan finished with a season-high 10 saves for Vermont while Rowan Anders made five stops for Dartmouth.

The Catamounts (0-5-3) return home to host Siena on Tuesday, September 30th in their final non-conference game of the season.
