After 35-3 manhandling at Dartmouth, Yale turns focus to Maine

(WTNH)–For the second straight season, the Yale football team was handed its first loss of the year by the Big Green of Dartmouth.

It was an ugly 35-3 loss on Saturday in New Hampshire, and it had been a long time since Yale was on the wrong side of a lopsided defeat.

The bus ride back from Manchester was not a pleasant one.

“You’re on a bus ride back to campus for three hours, and it’s pretty brutal. Pretty brutal knowning we could have done more and played better,” said quarterback Morgan Roberts.

“We just didn’t play well, bottom line,” said head coach Tony Reno. “We had our opportunities and we just didn’t cash in on them.”

“There was really no point in the game where we didn’t think we couuld come back,” Roberts said.

Reno says the team has already put the loss behind it, and says they’re now preparing for this week’s game against Maine–which just may be the toughest opponent they face all season.

“Maine is just as good, if not better than Dartmouth,” Reno said. “They’re definitely faster, and more physical.”
