No. 5 UConn Tops Yale 3-0 to Stay Unbeaten
For the Yale Bulldogs, the annual game with state rival UConn always offers a chance to see how they stack up in the national field hockey scene. The Huskies, ranked No. 5 in the country right now, have made 23 NCAA Tournament appearances -- including each of the last 10 years. With a game vs. No. 2 Princeton looming next weekend, it was particularly important for the Bulldogs to get some experience playing a top-ranked team before taking on the Tigers in a game with Ivy League title implications. While Yale wound up falling to the Huskies 3-0, there were enough signs of progress to provide some optimism for the remainder of the season.

Hofstra Takes Defensive Struggle, 1-0
With 15 goals in its first four games, Hofstra figured to be a challenge for the Yale field hockey team’s defense on Saturday afternoon at Johnson Field.

September 6, 2012

Bulldogs Regroup, "Get a Grip" on 3-2 Win Over Quinnipiac
With a large crowd on hand on a sunny Sunday afternoon at Johnson Field for the annual “Get a Grip” fundraiser game for the Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation, the Yale field hockey team had an ideal setting to bounce back from a disappointing 4-0 loss to Fairfield in Friday’s season opener. But the Bulldogs fell behind quickly to the Bobcats -- just as they had on Friday to the Stags -- and found themselves still seeking their first goal of the season by the time halftime around. The second half was a different story, though, as Yale scored early and often -- including the first career goals for freshman forward/midfielder Nicole Wells and freshman back Molly Wolf. Junior midfielder Erica Borgo capped the day with the game-winning goal with 4:54 to play as Yale came away with a 3-2 win.

Quick Start Leads Fairfield Past Yale in Opener, 4-0
Falling behind 3-0 in the first 11 minutes of the 2012 season opener -- including two goals on penalty strokes -- proved to be too big of a deficit for the Yale field hockey team to overcome Friday afternoon at Fairfield. The Stags scored just once in the final 59 minutes, but the Bulldogs could not muster any offense of their own and fell 4-0. Junior goalkeeper Emily Cain made 15 saves.

Starting the celebration of the 40th anniversary of varsity field hockey at Yale, the Bulldogs get the 2012 campaign underway this weekend with a visit to Fairfield Friday (4:30 p.m.) for the first official game of the 2012-13 Yale Athletics season. The weekend also includes the home opener Sunday (1:00 p.m.) vs. Quinnipiac, a game made all the more special by the fact that it is the launch of the team’s annual “Get a Grip” campaign for the Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation. The Bulldogs’ efforts over the past three years have been inspired by senior goalie Ona McConnell (London, England), who was diagnosed with that disease midway through her freshman season but has continued to play.

This year’s campaign begins with the home opener vs. local rival Quinnipiac at Yale’s Johnson Field (70 Central Avenue, New Haven) on Sunday, Sept. 2 at 1 p.m.

A Life-Saving Match, with an Assist from Mandi Schwartz ’10 (1988-2011) and Yale
Erika Turner and Christopher Magoon ’11 were total strangers until a series of events led to Magoon becoming a life-saving marrow donor who helped Turner beat cancer in 2010 -- and a crucial event in that series happened at Yale, at a drive inspired by a woman neither of them knew. Magoon was chosen as a genetic match for Turner shortly after he joined the Be The Match Registry through the annual Mandi Schwartz Marrow Donor Registration Drive at Yale. He and Turner were in the national spotlight Wednesday, as they met for the first time on ABC’s “Good Morning America”. ABC’s Robin Roberts, who has been diagnosed with myelodysplastic systems and is scheduled to have a bone marrow transplant in the near future, facilitated the introduction.

Life-Saving Match from Mandi Schwartz Drive to be Featured on Good Morning America
Since the Yale Athletics department first began holding marrow donor registration drives inspired by women’s ice hockey player Mandi Schwartz ’10 (1988-2011) in 2009, the Bulldogs have added more than 3,000 potential donors to the Be The Match Registry. That has led to at least 14 marrow donations for patients with life-threatening illnesses who are in need of genetic matches for transplants. This Wednesday morning, as part of a segment on ABC’s “Good Morning America”, two of the people involved in one of those “matches” will meet each other for the first time. Erika Turner, a cancer survivor whose life was saved by a stem cell transplant, will meet Christopher Magoon ’11, the man who donated those cells shortly after registering at a Mandi Schwartz Marrow Donor Registration Drive at Yale. ABC’s Robin Roberts, recently diagnosed with myelodysplastic systems, will facilitate the introduction. She is scheduled to have a bone marrow transplant in the near future.
