Bulldogs Blank Saint Peter’s 2-0

Hino, Mullo Score For Yale

JERSEY CITY, N.J. – On Saturday against Harvard, the Yale women's soccer team had a number of quality scoring chances early in the game but couldn't capitalize. Against Saint Peter's on Tuesday, the Bulldogs were far more efficient. Yale scored on its first two shots and cruised to a 2-0 victory over the Peahens on a raw night at Cochrane Stadium.

Miyuki Hino and Enma Mullo had the goals for the Bulldogs, while Kristen Forster added two assists. Ayana Sumiyasu made four saves in goal to post the shutout.

Yale (4-6-1) jumped on the board just 1 minute, 58 seconds into the game when Mullo tallied her second goal of the season.

Neither team had a shot over the next 14 minutes until Hino beat Saint Peter's goalkeeper Erin Ronan at 16:53. Forster and Kate Macauley assisted on the goal.

The Peahens (3-9) answered Hino's goal with a flurry, but Sumiyasu made two saves in the next five minutes to keep them off the scoreboard.

Saint Peter's best scoring chance came late in the first half, but Valerie Kay's shot deflected off the crossbar.

The Bulldogs controlled play in the second half, outshooting Saint Peter's 7-2.

The shutout was the 11th of Sumiyasu's career. Ronan finished with three saves for the Peahens.

Yale returns to Ivy League play on Saturday, playing at Dartmouth. Kickoff is slated for 4 p.m.
