Quinnipiac's 2-0 start to open the season marked the first time in the program's Division I history. 1997, before Quinnipiac elevated to the Division I ranks, was the only other year since the program's inception, that Quinnipiac opened the year at 2-0.
Quinnipiac is one of two teams - along with Saint Francis (Pa.) - to have two different players register a four-point game this season. Jennalise Taylor had a goal and two assists in the Bobcats' 3-1 win against Towson, while Jess Rusin had a pair of goals against Yale.
Rusin's showing against Yale was the ninth multiple-goal game by a Northeast Conference player this season. In addition, Rusin now has four multiple-goal games for her career, the most of any active player in the Bobcats' line-up.
Moving Up The Charts
Rusin now has 16 goals for her career, moving her ahead of Meredith Klein '05 and Mackenzie Liptak '11 (15 goals apiece) for 13th place all-time. Her five points for the season give her 36 for her career, moving her past Christine Grady '10 (34 career points) into a tie for 17th place all-time with Courtney Ryan, '03 and Lauren Riesbeck, '98.
