NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Alicia Fujii had two goals and Christina Huang, Mary Kuder and Laurel Karnes each scored once as Yale, ranked 22nd by the NSCAA, cruised to a 5-1 non-league victory over Sacred Heart at the Soccer-Lacrosse Stadium. It was the 11th straight win for the Bulldogs, who have scored 10 goals in their last two games.

"Our offense is really clicking, and I'm happy about that," said Yale head coach Rudy Meredith. "Hopefully we can keep it up. We have a big Ivy League game this weekend."

The Bulldogs have now outscored their opponents 28-6 in 13 games. Yale is 5-0 in the friendly confines of the Soccer-Lacrosse Stadium.

Huang opened the scoring at 9:05 when her shot from the left wing deflected off a Sacred Heart player in front and trickled into the goal. Kuder scored her first goal at Yale nearly nine minutes later to make it 2-0. The Bulldogs scored once more before the half on Karnes' penalty kick at 32:05.

Both of Fujii's goals came in the second half. Her first came off a long feed from Trista Choksi, and her second, which capped the scoring 88:09, was off an Erin Ruck corner kick. Yale's bid for its eighth shutout of the season was spoiled when Meagan Riemer scored for Sacred Heart (5-8-1) at 80:05.

Yale (11-2) outshot the Pioneers 20-4. Chloe Beizer played the first half in goal for the Bulldogs and was relieved by Susan Starr in the second half.

The Bulldogs return to action on Saturday when they play at Penn at 7:30 p.m.
