Men's Fencing Falls to NYU 17-10

Nov. 29, 2005

Michael Pearce led Yale to a 6-3 victory in epee, but the men's fencing team fell in foil and sabre and lost to NYU 17-10 in Payne Whitney Gym.

Pearce won all three of his bouts, combining with two victories from Johnny Beski and one from Steve Miller to take home a closely fought epee competition.

Yale fell 6-3 in sabre and 8-1 in foil. In sabre, Chris Peterson won two bouts and Brad Broadhead took one. Kawing Cho was the only bulldog to salvage a win in foil.

Yale travels to Waltham, MA this weekend to compete in the Brandeis Invitational.
