Feb. 5, 2005

New Haven, CT - The No. 3 ranked Bulldogs (7-1, 5-0 Ivy) cruised to a 9-0 victory over the visiting Bears today at the Brady Squash Center.

Senior Josh Schwartz, playing at No. 1, defeated Brown's Breck Bailey 3-0. At No. 2, freshman Moshe Sarfaty regrouped after dropping the first game to Daniel Petrie and won the next three games to earn the 3-1 win.

The bottom of the lineup was particularly strong for Yale, with Ho Ming Chiu, Max Samuel, Avner Geva, and James Rector, playing No. 6, 7, 8, and 9 respectively, all winning in three games.

The win over the Bears sets the stage for next Saturday's match at No. 2 Harvard, which will determine the Ivy League champion.
