Final Road Trip Takes Yale To Princeton
Nov. 9, 2007
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - The Bulldogs hit the road for the final time in 2007 when they travel to New Jersey to meet Princeton on Sunday at 4 p.m. It won't be the typical game at Princeton, however. The new Myslik Field at Roberts Stadium is under construction so the game will be played in Princeton Stadium, the home of Princeton football. Pay-per-view video of the game is available at goprincetontigers.com.
Sunday's game figures to be a low-scoring affair. Yale (3-7-5, 1-2-2 Ivy) has allowed more than two goals only once this season, a 3-1 loss to then 10th-ranked Northwestern in the season opener on Sept. 7. The Bulldogs have allowed only 18 goals all season, which is tied for the third fewest in the Ivy League. Goalkeeper Erik Geiger has a 1.14 goals against average and a .797 save percentage.
Princeton (5-8-2, 3-2 Ivy) has shutout wins in each of its last two games and has five shutouts in its last nine games. Sean Lynch (1.40 goals against average) and Joe Walter (1.55) have split the goalkeeping duties. Kyle McHugh leads the Tigers in scoring with 15 points (7 goals, 1 assist). Devin Muntz and Ben Harms share the team lead in assists with three apiece.
Yale has won four straight against Princeton, including a 3-2 victory last year at Reese Stadium. Jordan Raybould scored the game-winning goal in the 82nd minute.
The Bulldogs conclude the 2007 season when they host Harvard on Nov. 17 at 11:30 a.m.
