Goins' Scoreless Streak Continues as Bulldogs Beat QU 1-0

Box Score

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.

"We put Stephanie Colantonio up at forward to play some good defense and spread out their defense," said head coach Pam Stuper. "She did well for us, coming off the bench."

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.
