FOOTBALL | Dartmouth’s Defense Stifles Cornell

The 2013 season doesn’t appear to be turning around any time soon. The Cornell football team turned in a dud of a performance on the NBC Sports Network to lose its seventh straight game, falling to Dartmouth, 34-6, on Saturday evening in Hanover, N.H.

While the Red (1-7, 0-5 Ivy League) punted after its first seven possessions and threw an interception on the eighth, Dartmouth (4-4, 3-2) rushed for 291 yards and held the ball for over 38 of the 60 minutes. Cornell’s defense played well in spurts, but wasn’t nearly good enough to hold off the steady Green attack that produced 510 total yards, led by sophomore quarterback Dalyn Williams.
