HANOVER, N.H. (AP) — Ben Rosenblatt boomed a 52-yard field goal in the final seconds of the first half to give Brown just enough cushion to hold off Dartmouth’s late charge for a 24-21 Ivy League win on Saturday.

Rosenblatt joined the team two weeks ago.

Brown (4-5, 3-3) held a 24-7 advantage at the break, but failed to get on the board in the second half. Dartmouth scored twice in the final quarter. Jack Heneghan scored from the 7 with 1:47 left to close to 24-21. The ensuing onside kick was recovered by Brown. Dartmouth got the ball back on its own 9 with seven seconds remaining.

Heneghan set a Dartmouth (4-5, 1-5) record by throwing for 440 yards. He also rushed for 35 yards.

Thomas Linta threw for 220 yards and two scores for the Bears. Troy Doles grabbed four passes for 103 yards and two touchdowns. His longest was 42 yards.
