Alberts, Dealy and Roberts Named First Team All-Ivy
Nov. 18, 2003
Seniors Jay Alberts (Sunset Hills, MO) and Brian Roberts (LaVerne, CA) and junior Andrew Dealy (Pittsburgh, PA) were selected First Team All-Ivy. Juniors Ryan Raybould (Leawood, KS) and Lindsey Williams (Columbus, OH) earned honorable mention recognition.
Alberts, a senior midfielder, is only the fifth player in Ivy League soccer history to be selected First Team All-Ivy four times. Alberts finished this season tying for the team lead in goals with five, including a game-winner against Penn that earned him Ivy League Player of the Week recognition. Alberts caps off a highly successful career at Yale, placing second in Yale history in total assists with 22, and fifth in total points with 62.
Roberts, the 2003 team captain, is now a four-time All-Ivy selection. The defender started every game of his Yale career, and finishes with five points. His lone goal this season was a game-winner at the buzzer against Dartmouth. Last season, Roberts was a second team All-Ivy pick and a third team All-New England selection.
Dealy, a forward, was a key contributor to the team's offense this season with a team-leading 18 points. He led the Ivy League in assists with eight, and his five goals tied for the team lead. Three of Dealy's goals this season were game-winning, including a penalty kick that lifted the Bulldogs over then 19th ranked Stanford. Last season, Dealy was named All-Ivy honorable mention as well as District I All-Academic and Academic All-Ivy honors.
Raybould, a midfielder who was named honorable mention All-Ivy last fall, finished the season with three points. His lone goal this season was against Central Connecticut, and he assisted on the game-winning goal against Hartford.
Williams contributed three goals and one assist this season. He scored the only goal in a Bulldog victory over Fairfield. Last season, Williams was selected First Team All-Ivy after leading the league in points with 24 and goals with 10.
