NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Ani Kazarian's goal in the 60th minute broke a 1-1 tie and gave Brown a 2-1 win over Yale Saturday afternoon at Johnson Field. The Bears (8-8) got 10 saves from goalkeeper Kristen Hodavance to send Yale (6-11) to its seventh one-goal loss of the season.

Brown opened the scoring in the 17th minute on a penalty stroke goal by Andrea Posa. The Bulldogs outshot Brown 17-3 in the first but could not get any past Hodavance.

Yale finally tied the score in the 54th minute when Grace Morris knocked in a shot taken by Lindsay Collins that had gotten past Hodavance. But less than six minutes later Kazarian put one past Yale goalkeeper Kate Crandall (six saves).

The Bulldogs had an 8-1 edge in penalty corners but could not convert any of them.

"It is another chapter in the book -- the team played great hockey," said head coach Pam Stuper. "It was a brilliant game despite the score."

The game marked the final appearance for Yale seniors Grace Morris, Katie Rivkin, Crandall and captain Marly Gillece.

"They should be very proud of the journey, despite the fact that the destination wasn't what they wanted," Stuper said of the group that marked her first year as head coach.
