HANOVER, N.H. - The Yale women's soccer team desperately needed a win against Dartmouth on Saturday to get back on track. Freshman Miyuki Hino helped make sure the Bulldogs got it. Hino scored once in each half to lead Yale to a 2-0 victory over the Big Green at Burnham Field.
Hino's first goal came at 25:21 following a scramble in front and was assisted by Becky Brown. It was Brown's team-leading ninth assist of the season.
Hino struck again at 76:04. This time it came on a shot from the right side after Dartmouth goalkeeper Laurel Peak came out of the net to try and grab the ball. Emma Whitfield was credited with the assist.
"This was a total team win," said Yale head coach Rudy Meredith. "We played 19 players and they all contributed. This was our best effort of the season."
Goalkeeper Ayana Sumiyasu made six saves to post the shutout, her third of the season and Yale's sixth as a team.
Dartmouth (5-5-1, 0-3 Ivy) outshot the Bulldogs 10-7 and had a 2-1 edge in corner kicks.
The victory improved Yale to 6-5-1 overall and 1-2 in Ivy League play.
The Bulldogs play their third straight Ivy road game at Cornell next Saturday at 4:30 p.m.
