Bears Topple Yale, 4-1
Nov. 13, 2004
New Haven, CT - After a tough loss to Princeton, the Bears regrouped and toppled Yale, 4-1 this afternoon at Ingalls Rink in New Haven, CT. Junior Keaton Zucker's (Gilford, NH) two goals put the game out of reach for Yale to increase Brown's record at 4-2-0 overall and 3-1-0 in the ECAC hockey league.
The Bears dominated the first period out shooting the Bulldogs, 14-7 and applied pressure out in front of Yale's crease making it difficult for Yale goalie Sarah Love to see anything coming at her. Junior Myria Heinhuis (Chatham, ONT) got the Bears on the board at the 4:56 mark, scoring her second goal of the season, on a Brown power play. Senior Kerry Nugent (Andover, MA) fed a pass to senior Amy McLaughlin (Berlin, MA), at the point who snapped a shot towards the net. Heinhuis got her stick on the puck, to redirect the shot past the Bulldogs goalie for the first goal of the game. The freshmen duo of Rylee Olewinski (Burr Ridge, IL) and Heather Lane (London, ONT) connected eight minutes later, to double Bruno's lead to two. Olewinski made a diving pass at center ice to Lane, who was streaking into Yale's zone for a one on one with Love. Lane faked left and shot the puck right, confusing Love and giving the Bears a 2-0, lead going into the first intermission.
Yale threatened early in the second period, putting tremendous pressure on the Bears' defense and freshman goalie O'Hara Shipe (Anchorage, AK). Shipe stood strong between the pipes, turning away all but one shot in the period. The Bulldogs cut Brown's lead to one mid-way through the second, but the Bears regained their two goal lead when Zucker scored the first of her two goals with seven minutes left in the period. Zucker received a pass from freshman Hayley Moore (Wakefield, MA) at the top of the crease and put the puck top shelf, for a 3-1 Bear lead.
Zucker would strike again when she placed a pass from Heinhuis over Love's shoulder, to extend the lead to three. Zucker positioned herself in front of the goal, unmarked and slammed the shot home rounding out the scoring for Brown. The Bulldogs put on the pressure late to try to get back into the game, but Shipe was a wall in net and finished the game with 24 saves.
Brown will host rival Harvard, Tuesday, November 16, for a 7:05 pm face off. The game will also be shown on COX Sports 3 live.
