Yale Blanks Dartmouth 1-0
Oct. 10, 2004
HANOVER, N.H. -- Jessica Berggren scored the only goal of the game off a corner kick in the 55th minute and Sarah Walker made six saves to post her fourth shutout of the season in goal as Yale edged Dartmouth 1-0 at Chase Field. The Bulldogs improve to 7-4 overall and 1-2 in the Ivy League, while the Big Green falls to 4-5-2 overall and 1-2 in conference play.
"This is a nice win on the road for us," said Yale head coach Rudy Meredith. "We're very excited. Hopefully this will give us confidence for the rest of the season."
Yale outshot the Big Green 13-11 and had nine corner kicks, including the one that resulted in the goal early in the second half.
"I give credit to Yale," said Dartmouth head coach Ben Landis. "They defended well as a team and even after they scored, they kept attacking."
Dartmouth had scoring chances in the final 20 minutes, but were turned away by a Yale defense that has allowed only eight goals in 11 games and has now posted six shutouts. With 18:21 left Big Green midfielder Megan Wijas blasted a shot to the left corner, but Walker made a diving save. Less than three minutes later, striker Christina Ferraris had an opportunity from in close, but Walker stonewalled her as well.
Dartmouth goalkeeper Anne Marbarger finished with four saves.
The Bulldogs are back in action next Saturday when they play at Cornell at noon.
