In the week since posting the unofficial Dartmouth junior varsity offensive football statistics, several emails have arrived here on the shoulder of Moose Mountain asking about the availability of defensive statistics for the jayvees.
Before offering up what I can, please know that stats are not available for junior varsity portion of the Harvard preseason game because there was a media blackout of the contest. In addition, the Williams game was canceled by the DIII school because of a lack of healthy bodies. That leaves just two games with statistics.
Going back to the recaps I wrote on the two contests played at Memorial Field, here's the best I can offer. The numbers are unofficial, and with a few players changing uniform numbers just for the jayvee games there could be errors beyond those made by a single person trying to keep statistics for two games. Caveat emptor.
MIDDLEBURY (13-6 loss with 10-minute quarters in the second half)
Ryan Roegge had a team-high eight tackles for Dartmouth. Linebacker Nigel Alexander added seven stops while fellow linebacker Andrew Lemkuil had five. TJ Simpson had four tackles with a sack, as did Seth Simmer.
NORWICH (42-0 win in a game called after three quarters after Dartmouth outgained the Cadets in total yards, 254-19, while limiting the Division III Vermont team to a single first down.) Tackles:
Seth Simmer 7, TJ Simpson 6, David Emanuels 4, Andrew Lemkuil 3, Ryan Roegge 3, Ross Andreasik 3, Niko Lalos 3, Jimmy Knight 2, Harrison Farber 2, Jordan McGriff 2, Rivers Cahee 1, Brandon Hester 1
