Second Of Four Straight Road Games
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Yale women's soccer team is back on the road. The Bulldogs travel to Northern New England to meet Dartmouth on Saturday. Kickoff is slated for 1 p.m. at Burnham Field and ESPN+ has the video.
Here are notes on Yale's trip to Hanover:
- This is the second of four straight road games for the Bulldogs, who don't return to Reese Stadium until an Oct. 20 matchup with Penn.
- Yale has featured a balanced scoring attack this season. Seven different Bulldogs have scored and no one has more than three goals. Noelle Higginson (11 points) and first year Saje Brar (8 points) lead the team in scoring.
- Higginson's 11 points are tied for second in the Ivy League.
- Yale and Dartmouth played a thriller last year at Reese Stadium. Aerial Chavarin's goal with 41 seconds left in the first overtime lifted the Bulldogs to a 2-1 victory. It was the fifth straight game between the teams that was decided by one goal or ended in a tie.
- Yale leads the all-time series with the Big Green 21-19-3. The Bulldogs are unbeaten in their last four games with Dartmouth.
The Big Green (5-3-2, 1-0-1) is coming off a scoreless tie with Princeton last Saturday. Dartmouth was outshot 29-3 but received excellent play from goalkeeper Mariel Gordon, who made a career-high nine saves on her way to earning Ivy League Player of the Week honors. The Big Green opened Ivy play with a 2-0 victory over Brown on Sept. 22. Remy Borinsky leads the team with four goals.
