Bulldogs Return Home To Host Lehigh Tuesday

First Of Three Straight Home Games

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The final non-conference game of the season brings a visit from Patriot League rival Lehigh on Tuesday. Kickoff at Reese Stadium is set for 7 p.m.

The teams renew their rivalry after playing 1-0 games in each of the last two years. In 2010, Cody Wilkins scored the only goal of the game late in the first half to lift the Bulldogs. Last year in Pennsylvania, the Mountain Hawks used a late first-half goal to win.

Yale (3-6-3) is coming off a 3-0 loss at No. 16 Cornell on Saturday. The Bulldogs held the high-powered Big Red off the board for nearly 70 minutes before Cornell finally broke through.

Peter Jacobson, Jenner Fox and Scott Armbrust share the team lead with three points apiece. Goalkeeper Bobby Thalman leads the Ivy League with 58 saves and is second with an .829 save percentage.

Lehigh (2-10) handed Navy its first Patriot League loss, 2-1, on Saturday. Brian Suchoski leads the team in scoring with two goals and four points. Ciaran Nugent has seen a majority of the action in goal and has a 1.80 goals against average.

Dean Koski is in his 21st season as the head coach of the Mountain Hawks. He is the school's all-time winningest coach.
