M. soccer extends winning streak to four

Williams scored midway through the second half to lead the men’s soccer team past Fairfield, 1-0, Tuesday at Fairfield. It was the Bulldogs’ (5-3, 1-0 Ivy) fourth win in a row. Williams, last year’s Ivy League points-leader, struggled early […]

W. hockey gearing up for playoff run

In the final frantic race for regular season points and prominent playoff positioning, most teams rally around their senior leadership.

W. hockey trounces Sacred Heart

The women’s hockey team put on a clinic Wednesday night in its final in-state matchup of the winter. Compared to nationally ranked No. 9 Providence, Sacred Heart must have seemed like a pee-wee squad. Coming off a grueling 1-1 tie against the Friars Jan. 19, the Bulldogs (5-12-2, 1-5-0 ECAC, 1-2 Ivy) utterly spanked the […]

Love leads Elis to hard-fought tie

Providence simply could not solve goaltender Sarah Love ’06 at Ingalls Rink Sunday. Love’s 36 saves led a stellar defensive effort by the women’s hockey team (4-12-2, 1-5-0 ECAC) en route to a 1-1 tie against the nationally ranked No. 9 Friars (10-5-6). The freshman turned her body into a wall at times, putting it […]

W. hockey rallies to beat Bobcasts, 4-3

Quinnipiac probably wishes ice hockey were a two-period sport. The Bobcats (3-16-0) entered the third period Wednesday night with a 3-2 lead. But Yale (4-12-1) outscored Quinnipiac 2-0 in the final period to snag the 4-3 win at Ingalls Rink. Quinnipiac must have thought it was seeing double. The Bearcats did not have answer for […]

Seniors lead w. soccer in 2-1 win

Seniors on the women’s soccer team made the most of their last home hurrah.

W. hockey drops home opener to Wayne State

The women’s ice hockey team had an eye-widening opening weekend.

W. soccer’s offense explodes in 9-0 victory

The women’s soccer team is developing into an offensive powerhouse — and opposing teams are taking notice. So when Yale (10-3-2, 2-2-1 Ivy) took on Wagner (4-13-2) Wednesday at the Soccer-Lacrosse Stadium, the Seahawks’ wisely started nine defenders and just two offensive players. And their strategy effectively strangled Yale for the first 45 minutes. But […]

W. hockey in rebuilding mode

Hilary Witt does not equivocate about the dreaded “R”-word. The women’s ice hockey first-year head coach readily admits her team is rebuilding. “We’re in a building stage, but we’re looking to change that really quickly,” she said. “It’s a process.” That process will begin tonight when the Bulldogs open the regular season against Wayne State […]
