Bulldogs Battle Bears in Home-and-Home Series

 

 

The Yale women's hockey team returns to ECAC action with a home-and-home series against Brown University (5-9-1, 2-5-1) this weekend. The Bulldogs boast a seven-game win streak against the Bears, dating back to Jan. 24, 2015, and are 8-1-1 in their last 10 meetings. Over that 10-game span, Yale has doubled Brown's offense, outscoring the Bears 36 to 18. The first game of the series will be played at Ingalls Rink on Friday at 6:00 p.m., and game two will take place at Meehan Auditorium in Providence on Saturday. Both games are available on ESPN+ and Stretch Internet (International). 

 

LAST TIME OUT

The Yale women's hockey team wrapped up its non-conference slate against the University of New Hampshire on Tuesday night. The Bulldogs carried a 3-2 lead into the third period before falling 4-3 to the Wildcats. First-year forward Claire Dalton recorded her third goal in two games, while the senior pair of Emma Vlasic and Julia Yetman gave the Elis two different leads with their second period goals. First-year defenseman Emma Seitz picked up her first multi-point game, assisting on Dalton and Yetman's goals.

 

THE BEARS

Brown closed out its non-conference slate last weekend against RIT. The Bears slipped 2-1 on Friday and 2-0 on Saturday.

Senior captain Emma Vlasic leads the pack with 11 points this season (6G, 5A) after scoring her second-period goal against UNH. Junior defenseman Saroya Tinker, sophomore forward Greta Skarzynski and first-year forward Charlotte Welch are all tied for the lead in assists (6).
