The Pioneers (3-13) are coming off a 2-1 loss to Robert Morris on Sunday. Yale is the third Ivy League opponents for SHU, who earlier in the season fell 1-0 at Brown and 3-0 at home to Columbia. Alex Mesropyan leads the team in goals (3), assists (2) and points (8). Matt Micros, who spent the past seven seasons as the head coach at Post University, is in his first year at the helm of Sacred Heart's program.
