NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Yale scored three goals in a 5 minute, 36 second stretch of the second half en route to a 3-0 victory over Rider at the Soccer-Lacrosse Stadium. Lindsey Weening, Mimi Macauley and Laurel Karnes each had goals for the Bulldogs, who won their sixth straight game to improve to 11-4 overall. Sarah Walker made three saves in goal to post her sixth shutout of the season.

Rider (9-6-2) had a slight edge in play in the first half, outshooting Yale 4-2. The Bulldogs, though, dominated the second half. Weening opened the scoring in the 78th minute when she scored off a feed from Laurel Karnes. Less than a minute later, Macauley tallied her team-leading sixth goal of the season when she settled a Stefanie Delvecchio pass and fired a shot past Rider goalkeeper Kim Carter. Karnes completed the scoring when she scored an unassisted goal at 83:30.

"We were having some trouble in the first half, so we moved an extra player up front," said Yale head coach Rudy Meredith.

The Bulldogs outshot the Broncs 13-4 in the second half. Carter finished with seven saves for Rider.

The Bulldogs, who are 7-1 in the friendly confines of the Soccer-Lacrosse Stadium, play their final home game of the regular season on Saturday when they host Columbia at 7 p.m.
