Last June, Yale women’s soccer coach Rudy Meredith helped the U.S. Under-23 Women’s National team capture a Three Nations Tournament in Stjordalen, Norway. Apparently the powers that be at U.S. Soccer were impressed with his work as an assistant coach.
A pair of seniors on the Yale women’s soccer team have earned All-Ivy recognition. Midfielder Kristen Forster, who led the team in scoring with seven goals and 17 points, was named to the first team, while Torrey Leroy, who anchored a stingy Yale defense, earned second team recognition.
Over the last four years, when Mary Kubiuk has scored, the result has usually been favorable for the Yale women’s soccer team. So perhaps it was only fitting that in the final game of her career, Kubiuk played a key role in sending the Class of 2013 off with a victory.
Trailing Brown 1-0 at halftime on Thursday night, Yale head coach Rudy Meredith told a national television audience watching on the Fox Soccer Channel that he was putting an “all points bulletin” out for his team’s offense. Apparently it was located. The Bulldogs scored twice in the second half and had a big edge in play. Brown, though, took advantage of one opportunity and Yale was forced to settle for a 2-2 tie on a chilly night at Stevenson Field.
The Yale women’s soccer team closes out the season with a rare home-and-home with Brown. The two teams will meet in Providence on Thursday in the game that will count in the Ivy League standings. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. and the Fox Soccer Channel will televise it as part of College Game of the Week package. On Sunday at 2 p.m., the teams will meet in New Haven on Senior Day. That game will be televised on tape delay by CPTV Sports in Connecticut.
Yale All-Access has exclusive live video coverage of four Yale athletics events this weekend, including a soccer doubleheader against Columbia and the first-place volleyball team hosting Columbia (Friday) and Cornell (Saturday).
Monday’s overtime victory over Fairfield did wonders for the psyche of the Yale women’s soccer team. Now, the Bulldogs will look to build on it when Columbia visits on Saturday. Kickoff on Youth Day at Reese Stadium is slated for 2 p.m.
The Yale women’s soccer team will look to complete a sweep of its in-state opponents when Fairfield visits Reese Stadium on Monday. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. and the game will be televised on tape delay by CPTV Sports in Connecticut. It will air on Wednesday at 7 p.m.
The Yale women’s soccer team got off to a strong start against Penn on Saturday. Unfortunately, the Bulldogs had nothing to show for it. The Quakers then caught a break early in the second half and went on to a 2-0 victory before a nice crowd at Reese Stadium.
Home has been pretty sweet for the Yale women’s soccer team so far in 2012. The Bulldogs are 4-1 in the friendly confines of Reese Stadium, outscoring their opponents 15-4. They’ll face a stiff test on Saturday when Penn comes to town for a 5:30 p.m. kickoff. The Quakers are 3-1 in Ivy League play and very much in the hunt for the league title.
The Yale women’s soccer team was due to catch a break. After all, it has been a season full of frustration so far, ranging from injuries to heartbreaking overtime defeats. Saturday’s 1-0 victory at Cornell could be just what the team needs to change the momentum.
The Yale women’s soccer team certainly doesn’t need much extra motivation for a game against Harvard. But the way the last three games with the Crimson have gone certainly doesn’t sit well with the Bulldogs. Each was a one-goal loss, including last year when Harvard scored the game winning goal on a penalty kick after a controversial hand ball in the box.
The Yale women’s soccer team is coming off two of its most impressive defensive efforts of the season. The Bulldogs shut down a potent Central Connecticut offense in a 1-0 victory last Sunday and allowed Iona only five shots two days earlier in a 2-1 win.
The Yale women’s soccer team had a big offensive week, outscoring its opponents 11-2 en route to three victories. Senior Kristen Forster was a big reason why. She scored three goals, all game-winners, and as a result has been named the Ivy League Player of the Week.
The Yale women’s soccer team should enter next Saturday’s Ivy League opener against Princeton feeling quite good. The Bulldogs completed a perfect weekend with a 1-0 victory over Central Connecticut on Sunday on a beautiful afternoon at Reese Stadium.
The Yale women’s soccer team plays its final two games before the start of Ivy League play this weekend. The Bulldogs host Iona on Friday at 7 p.m. and then get a visit from Central Connecticut on Sunday at 4 p.m.
After scoring early in Friday’s game with Iona, the Yale women’s soccer team had a number of opportunities to add to the lead. The Bulldogs, though, couldn’t capitalize, and it looked like it might cost them when Iona’s Sofia Sanchez scored with 3:28 left to force overtime.
