SACRED HEART TOPS YALE 3-2
Sept. 6, 2003
NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Christy Bobe scored the game-winning goal 3 minutes, 28 seconds into overtime as Sacred Heart edged Yale 3-2 at Johnson Field.
"Sacred Heart deserved to win this game," said Yale head coach Ainslee Lamb. "We spend 30 minutes a day in practice on corners, but we were only 1 of 14. Meredith Howell had a great game for us today. She has come in to her own."
Topp's goal on a penalty corner opened the scoring when she took a feed from Sarah Driscoll and drilled a shot past Sacred Heart goalkeeper Robyn Breer. Yale's second goal came shortly after Krissy Nesburg made a key save on a penalty corner. Nesburg finished with 10 saves.
Breer made 18 saves for the Pioneers (2-1).
Yale (0-1) hosts Rhode Island on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. at Johnson Field.
