Ketchum Scores Yale Goal

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Quinnipiac goalie Victoria Vigilanti stopped 23 of 24 Yale shots Saturday afternoon at Ingalls Rink, leading the Bobcats to a 2-1 win over the Bulldogs. Junior forward Bray Ketchum scored Yale's lone goal.

Yale (0-4-1, 0-4-4 ECAC Hockey) had a 7-4 edge in shots in the first period but could not get any past Vigilanti. Quinnipiac (5-3-2, 3-0-1 ECAC Hockey) then broke on top at 5:14 of the second on a goal by Janine Duffy. The Bobcats extended the lead less than a minute before the second intermission on a goal by Bethany Dymarczyk.

Freshman defenseman Tara Tomimoto got Yale's offense going on a power play early in the third by putting a shot on net that was saved but came loose in front of the net. Senior forward Berit Johnson got it to Ketchum to pull Yale within one. It was Tomimoto's first career point.

That was the end of the scoring, however. The Bulldogs called timeout and pulled junior goalie Jackee Snikeris (19 saves) for an extra skater with 1:22 to play but could not get the equalizer.

Yale travels to RPI and Union next weekend.
