HAMDEN, Conn. - Sophomore goalkeeper Charlotte Goins made eight saves and extended her scoreless streak to 170:30 as Yale won 1-0 at Quinnipiac Friday afternoon. The lone goal came from sophomore midfielder Katie Cantore, assisted by senior back Beth Raveche, at 54:35.
Quinnipiac (1-9), which has lost six games by one goal, had a 7-2 edge in shots on goal in the first half but Goins stopped them all. In the second half the Bulldogs reversed that trend for a 7-1 edge, thanks in part to some key substitutions.
Cantore was finally able to solve QU goalkeeper Jenna Grossman (eight saves) off a penalty corner. When Grossman went down to try to stop a straight shot by Raveche, Cantore was able to tip the ball over her for her second goal of the year.
"Katie had a tremendous second half," said Stuper. "She stepped up and decided she was going to help us win this game."
This marked the sixth time in eight games Yale (3-5) has held its opponent to two or fewer goals. The Bulldogs held the Bobcats scoreless on 11 penalty corners.
"Charlotte made some nice saves, and Beth did a nice job as well," Stuper said. "She made some key tackles on fast breaks."
Over the last three games, Goins has a 0.33 goals-against average and has stopped 18 of 19 shots (.947).
The Bulldogs host another local rival, Sacred Heart, on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. Live stats will be available via GameTracker on yalebulldogs.com.
