NEW HAVEN, Conn. — No. 5 Yale finished off its four-match week with a 9-0 victory against No. 6 Cornell this afternoon at the Brady Squash Center. 

Yale (6-0, 2-0 Ivy) handed Cornell (4-1, 2-1 Ivy) its first loss of the season, taking all nine individual matches despite tough competition from a strong Cornell squad that challenged the Bulldogs in several individual matchups. 

In the No. 3 position, junior Shihui Mao battled back from an early deficit to defeat Cornell's Rachel Sherman in a tightly contested match. After dropping the first two games, Mao won the next three to claim a hard-fought victory (7-11, 10-12, 11-6, 11-9, 11-9). 

The Bulldogs will return to action next Sunday, Jan. 19 against No. 32 Haverford and No. 28 Tufts at the Brady Squash Center.
