Box Score

HANOVER, N.H. - Paul King scored a pair of goals and Fernando Huthmacher added a goal and an assist as Fairleigh Dickinson topped Yale 3-0 on the second day of the Dartmouth Classic at Burnham Field. Travis Chulick made a season-high seven saves in goal for the Bulldogs.

Yale (1-2) had a couple of early chances, but FDU goalkeeper Juho Illi made saves on shots by Eric Meyer and Max Rhodes.

The game remained scoreless until early in the second half when Huthmacher one-timed a Christian Vasconez cross over Chulick's head. King's first goal came in the 77th minute, and he scored again with less than five minutes remaining.

The Knights (3-2) outshot Yale 17-7, but the Bulldogs had an 11-2 edge in corner kicks.

"It was one of those days where nothing seemed to go right for us," said Yale head coach Brian Tompkins. "FDU is a good team, and they caught us with a couple of good goals. This weekend was a valuable learning experience for us. Hopefully, we can bounce back on Wednesday."

The Bulldogs host Stony Brook on Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Reese Stadium.
