NYU Upends Yale, 15-12

Nov. 30, 2004

Johnny Beski, James Rohrbach, and Will Tauxe led Yale to a 6-3 victory in epee, but the men's fencing team fell in foil and sabre and lost to NYU 15-12 in Payne Whitney Gym.

All three epee fencers went 2-1 in their bouts in an epee competition that was extremely close. Five of the nine bouts in that weapon were decided by 5-4 scores.

In sabre and foil, Yale fell 6-3 to NYU. In sabre, Matthew Chaiken, Harry Flaster, and Christopher Peterson each won one bout, while Michael Aboodi won two bouts in foil and Cory Werk added a win.

Yale travels to Ithaca, NY to face Cornell this weekend.
