The Yale women’s soccer program will host an open house on Monday, Feb. 21. The open house will run from 9 a.m. to noon. For more information, contact Assistant Coach Todd Plourde at firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-650-2771.
Miyuki Hino, who started all 17 games and scored three goals this fall, has been elected captain of the 2011-12 Yale women’s soccer team. The announcement was made at the post-season banquet following a team vote.
Ten Yale student-athletes have earned Fall Academic All-Ivy honors. Football players Patrick Witt and Jesse Reising, Jeff Perrella from the cross country team, soccer player Eric Meyer and lightweight rower William Zeng were honored on the men’s side. The women selected were soccer players Kate Macauley and Miyuki Hino, field hockey player Dinah Landshut, volleyball player Taylor Cramm and rower Stephanie Madner.
Three Yale women’s soccer players have been selected to participate in the annual New England Division I Senior Bowl. Goalkeeper Ayana Sumiyasu, midfielder Megan Ashforth and forward Becky Brown will represent the Bulldogs. The game is Saturday at 2:30 p.m. at Merrimack College.
Four Yale women’s soccer players have earned All-Ivy League recognition. Becky Brown, who led the team assists (6) and points (14), and goalkeeper Ayana Sumiyasu, who leads the league with 77 saves, were both first team selections. Kristen Forster was named to the second team, while Enma Mullo earned honorable mention recognition.
The bright future of the Yale women’s soccer team was on display in the 2010 season finale at Brown. Sophomores Kristen Forster and Mary Kubiuk both scored and junior Enma Mullo had a key assist as the Bulldogs knocked off the Bears 2-1 at Stevenson Field.
Jessica Schloth, who has appeared in all 16 games for the Yale women’s soccer team, has been named one of the top 100 freshmen in the nation by TopDrawerSoccer.com. Schloth was rated No. 46 in the latest rankings, released on Thursday.
The Yale women’s soccer team hoped Saturday’s regular season finale at Brown would have Ivy League title ramifications when the schedule was released in June. Unfortunately the Bulldogs were eliminated from the race with a loss to Penn two weeks ago. Nevertheless, there is still much to play for when Yale visits the Bears. A victory would give the Bulldogs an 8-8-1 overall record, their ninth straight season with a .500 or better mark. Kickoff at Stevenson Field is slated for 4 p.m.
At the beginning of the season, conventional wisdom had the Yale women’s soccer team as serious contenders in the Ivy League. Injuries and some bad breaks derailed the Bulldogs, but on Saturday night against Columbia they showed what might have been. Kristen Forster’s goal late in the second half snapped a 1-1 tie and lifted Yale to a 2-1 victory over the Lions, who entered the night in a first-place tie.
The women’s soccer Class of 2011 has accomplished quite a bit at Yale. Megan Ashforth, Becky Brown, Kate Macauley, Natalie Romine, Lizz Reeves and Ayana Sumiyasu have helped lead the Bulldogs to 35 wins over the last four years. On Saturday the six will suit up for the last time at Reese Stadium when Yale hosts first-place Columbia. The festivities get under way at 7 p.m.
The last two Yale-Penn women soccer games played at Reese Stadium have ended in scoreless ties. The teams meet again there Saturday, and while it should be another close game, there figures to be some goals scored. Yale has scored 12 times in its last six games, while the Quakers have eight goals in four Ivy League games. Kickoff is slated for 4:30 p.m.
It was more of the same for the Yale womens soccer team on Saturday against Penn. The Bulldogs yielded the first goal, had to play catch up and couldnt get the equalizer despite a number of chances. The result was a heartbreaking 1-0 loss to the Quakers on Alumni Day at Reese Stadium.
After a long bus ride home from Cornell on Saturday, Yale head coach Rudy Meredith elected not to have his team practice on Sunday or Monday. Instead, he put them through a short session about 90 minutes prior to Tuesday nights game against Holy Cross. Apparently, that was more than enough preparation. The Bulldogs dominated the Crusaders and walked away with an impressive 3-0 victory on a chilly night at Reese Stadium.
The Yale womens soccer team takes its final break from Ivy League play when Holy Cross visits Reese Stadium on Tuesday night at 7 p.m. After playing four straight road games, the Bulldogs are back at home for the first time in nearly three weeks.
The Yale womens soccer team seems to be building momentum at the right time. The Bulldogs have won two straight games and three of their last four heading into Saturdays contest at Cornell. Yale needs to keep the streak going to remain in the Ivy League title race. Kickoff at Berman Field is slated for 4 p.m.
The Yale womens soccer team had a big edge in many of the statistics in Saturdays game at Cornell. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, it didnt result in a victory. Maneesha Chitanvis scored early in the first half and the Big Red hung on for a 1-0 victory on a windy afternoon at Berman Field.
Becky Brown (Lawrenceville, N.J.), who had a hand in all three Yale goals in Saturdays 3-1 victory at Dartmouth, has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week. She shared the honor with Columbias Ashlin Yahr. It is the second time this season Brown has been recognized.
After losing a heartbreaking 2-1 decision to Harvard last weekend, the Yale womens soccer team finds itself in the same situation the 2004 squad faced. That year, Yale lost its first two Ivy League games to Princeton and Harvard but rolled off five straight league wins and earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. The streak started with a win at Dartmouth. The 2010 Bulldogs will try to follow the same script when they play at the Big Green on Saturday at 4 p.m.
It appears the Yale womens soccer team has solved the problem it has had finishing scoring chances especially in the first half of games. The Bulldogs had only four shots in the first 45 minutes against Dartmouth on Saturday but scored on three of them en route to a 3-1 victory at Burnham Field.
On Saturday against Harvard, the Yale womens soccer team had a number of quality scoring chances early in the game but couldnt capitalize. Against Saint Peters on Tuesday, the Bulldogs were far more efficient. Yale scored on its first two shots and cruised to a 2-0 victory over the Peahens on a raw night at Cochrane Stadium.
The road has not been kind to the Yale womens soccer team so far in 2010. The Bulldogs are still searching for their first victory away from the friendly confines of Reese Stadium. Theyll try to get it when they play a non-league game at Saint Peters on Tuesday. Kickoff at Cochrane Stadium is slated for 7 p.m.
The Yale womens soccer team had the kind of start it thought it needed in Saturdays Ivy League showdown with Harvard. The Bulldogs got five shots in the first 12 minutes but couldnt capitalize. The Crimson then scored in the 14th minute, added an insurance goal on a penalty kick in the second half and held on for a 2-1 victory at Ohiri Field. Mary Kubiuk scored for Yale.
The Yale womens soccer team wont play in the friendly confines of Reese Stadium again until Oct. 19. The Bulldogs will look to get their stretch of four straight road games off to a positive start when they play at Harvard on Saturday. Kickoff at Ohiri Field is slated for 11 a.m.
Saturdays Ivy League opener against Princeton didnt go the way the Yale womens soccer team hoped it would. The Bulldogs will try and get back on track and build some momentum for a showdown with Harvard when they host Marist on Tuesday. Kickoff at Reese Stadium is slated for 5:30 p.m. The Yale men host St. Johns after the womens game.
Entering Tuesdays game with Marist, the Yale womens soccer team had scored only six goals on the season. With the heart of the Ivy League season approaching, that made the mission against the Red Foxes fairly clear.
All week long, Yale head coach Rudy Meredith stressed to his team the importance of scoring first in Saturdays Ivy opener against Princeton. Meredith proved prophetic, but unfortunately it wasnt his club that got on the board early. Jen Hoys goal midway through the first half was the only goal of the game as the Tigers earned an impressive win on a hot afternoon at Reese Stadium.
A live Yale All-Access video stream of Saturdays Yale-Princeton womens soccer game (4 p.m.) will be available on yalebulldogs.com for $8.95. This is the first video stream ever from newly renovated Reese Stadium. Chelsea Janes 12 will provide the play-by-play.
Yale womens soccer coach Rudy Meredith put together a very challenging early season schedule to prepare his team for Ivy League play. The Bulldogs came through it in good shape, knocking off Penn State and losing one-goal decisions to No. 14 Duke and Illinois, currently ranked 20th, along the way. On Saturday they hope to reap the rewards from the challenge when they open Ivy play against Princeton. Kickoff at Reese Stadium is slated for 4 p.m.
