Dixon's Tally Helps Dartmouth to Top Union

Only 19 seconds passed of the five-on-four advantage before Cally Dixon was able to score an insurance goal for the Big Green, reestablishing the two-goal lead.
"I sort of just hung out in the back and Izee [Powell] made a great move and got me wide open and all I had to do was finish the puck," Dixon said about her goal. "It's nice when my teammates get me open."
