Second-period goals from Brad Schierhorn, Tim O'Brien and Eric Robinson in a span of 4:58 lifted No. 5 seed Dartmouth College to a 6-3 win over No. 12 Harvard in the deciding game of their best-of-three first-round ECAC hockey series at Thompson Arena in Hanover Sunday.

Nick Bligh opened the third period with a goal, giving Dartmouth a 4-1 cushion. Dustin Walsh made it 5-2 at the 14:42 mark and Schierhorn completed the scoring for the Big Green with an empty net goal at 18:14.
