Yale Travels To Bryant Tuesday

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Yale will look to build on the momentum of last Friday's 2-2 tie with No. 4 Michigan State when they make a short trip to Rhode Island to meet the Bryant Bulldogs on Tuesday. Kickoff is slated for 4:30 p.m. and NEC Front Row has the video. Because of the wet conditions, the game will be played at Beirne Stadium, Bryant's field-turf football stadium.

Here are notes on the battle of Bulldogs:

  • Yale showed it could contend with the nation's best programs in earning the draw with the Spartans. The Bulldogs scored the first goal of the game, and after the Spartans scored a pair of goals in the second half, kept their composure and earned the draw by scoring will less than 10 minutes remaining.
  • Yale outshot Michigan State 6-4 in the two 10-minute overtime periods.
  • Nicky Downs, who scored the tying goal, now leads the team with two goals on the season.
  • Will Emerson's goal which gave the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead over MSU was the first of his career.
  • Yale has outscored its opponent 4-1 in the first half.
  • Yale and Bryant are playing for the first time.


Bryant (0-5-1) is coming off a 2-1 loss at Stony Brook on Saturday. The Bulldogs are young. They have a sophomore, Charles DeSantis, and first year, Ben Williams, leading the team in scoring with three points apiece. Yale is the second Ivy League opponent for Bryant, who dropped a 2-1 decision to Brown on August 31.
