The Yale Field Hockey team (2-3) ended their Washington, D.C. road trip on a sweet note with a 2-1 victory over Georgetown University (2-5). Junior Katie Rivkin scored both Yale's goals in the first half, but it was all the Bulldogs needed to get the victory.
Yale dominated the first half of play, and Rivkin put her first goal on the board about 15 minutes into play, driving her shot past Georgetown goaltender Abby Winer. Rivkin's second goal came only nine minutes later after one of Yale's six penalty corners of the half. Rivkin returned to play last week versus Princeton after taking some time off for minor surgery.
The second half was a different story for the Bulldogs, as the Hoyas were determined to get on the board. However, the strong play of Yale defenders, including Meredith Hudson, Heather Orrico and team captain Chrissy Hall held the Hoyas to only one goal and foiled Georgetown's comeback attempts.
The Bulldogs ended their first road trip of the season 1-1 after falling to American University 1-3 on Friday.
Next Saturday, the Bulldogs travel to Cornell for their second league game of the season. Their next home contest will be against Rhode Island on October 2 at Noon.
