LAST TIME OUT
The Yale women's hockey team ended the first half of the season, splitting a pair of games against Vermont in early December. First-year forwards Claire Dalton and Rebecca Vanstone both recorded season highs with three points on two goals and an assist on Dec. 8 against the Catamounts. Dalton sealed the 6-4 win for the Bulldogs when she buried a late, third-period penaly shot. Sophomore forward Greta Skarzynski also had a two-goal performance, and sophomore netminder Gianna Meloni recorded her first win of the season.
The Wildcats ended the first half of the season on a seven-game unbeaten streak, most recently, tying Harvard 2-2 on Dec. 8.
First-year forward Rebecca Vanstone took over as the Bulldogs' lead scorer with six goals in the first half. Vanstone and senior captain Emma Vlasic both have 10 points. Vlasic, Claire Dalton, Greta Skarzynski, Charlotte Welch and Saroya Tinker all have five assists on the year.
