The Yale men's lightweight eight varsity made it three straight wins at the 2005 Henley Royal Regatta on the Thames River in England by beating the University of West England by one and a quarter lengths in today's semifinal.
The Bulldogs came in at 6:43 which was a second faster than yesterday's quarterfinal time. Yale, looking for it's first Temple Challenge Cup Title since 2000, will race Trinity (Hartford) on Sunday at 5:10 local time. The Bantams beat Oxford Brookes today to make the final.
