ROCHESTER, N.Y.—The No. 8 Yale men's squash team came up short in a marathon match against No. 6 Rochester that lasted over four hours. The final score for the match was 6-3.
The match was extremely competitive, and six of the nine matches were forced over three games.
Yale saw wins from sophomore Spencer Lovejoy, first-year Tyler Carney and junior Yohan Pandole in the No. 1, 7, and 8 spots, respectively. Lovejoy and Pandole were able to secure their wins in only three games, while Carney came back from a lost second game to beat his opponent.
Seniors Max Martin, Arjun Kochhar, and Pierson Broadwater fought tooth and nail through five games apiece in the No. 3, 4, and 5 spots. Despite their efforts, the seasoned veterans could not close against a skilled Rochester squad.
After a rough weekend of away matches, the Bulldogs will now turn their focus closer to home. There are seven matches left in Yale's regular season, and six of them will be held in the Brady Squash Center in Payne Whitney Gymnasium.
The men won't have to wait long to show their stuff on home turf. The Bulldogs are lined up to compete against the No. 1 ranked Trinity on Wednesday evening.
