No. 8 Yale Wins Over No. 24 Amherst, No. 21 Williams

MASSACHUSETTS—The No.8 Yale men improved their record to 5-0 this Sunday with back-to-back wins against No. 24 Amherst and No. 21 Williams.

The day's challenging schedule didn't phase the Bulldogs, who lost only one match over both competitions.

Yale's first match of the day was against Amherst, where the Bulldogs closed out seven of nine matches in just three games. The Yale men's confidence showed throughout the match and led them to an impressive 9-0 win.

Just hours later, the Bulldogs took on Williams. The proximity of the matches didn't faze Yale, and they rose to an 8-1 victory.

The Bulldogs will have another chance to show their impressive stamina on Saturday, Jan. 13, when they take on Penn in their second Ivy League matchup of the season.
