Middough tacked on two more for Yale in the second stanza, at 59:14 and 67:30, for the final score of 4-0. Leckey made her defensive save at 67:11 in the frame for her fourth of the season, which tied her with Kelsey Grossman '14 (2012) for third all-time for defensive saves in a season.

Brown (1-16, 0-7 Ivy League) saw an increased output in offense for the second, generating five more shots than the opening period.

Hammaker finished the contest with 13 saves, including eight in the second half. It was her ninth double-digit save effort of the season. Sydney Terroso made four stops on the other side for Yale.
