Box Score

NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- Laurel Karnes scored twice and Mimi Macauley added a pair of assists as Yale blanked Fairfield 3-0 at the Soccer-Lacrosse Stadium. Freshmen Christina Huang added her first career goal as the Bulldogs cruised to their fourth straight victory.

"I'm happy with the way we created a lot of chances," said Yale head coach Rudy Meredith. "This was probably our most complete game of the season."

The Bulldogs (9-5-1) dominated the first half, outshooting the Stags 13-1, but led only 1-0 thanks to Huang's goal 58 seconds into the contest. Karnes' first goal in the 75th minute increased the lead to 2-0, and less than eight minutes later, she scored again to seal the victory. Yale outshot Fairfield 21-3 for the game.

Sarah Walker and Chloe Beizer combined to make two saves in goal as the Bulldogs posted their seventh shutout of the season.

Katie Ely and Elise Dardani combined to stop six shots for Fairfield (7-8-1).
