Women's Soccer Falls To Yale, 1-0

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Junior goalkeeper Kendra Margulies (Weston, Mass.) recorded five saves as the Quinnipiac University women's soccer team lost to Yale University, 1-0, Tuesday evening. The Bobcats' record drops to 1-4-1 while the Bulldogs improve to 4-3.

"I'm very pleased with the way we played tonight," said head coach Dave Clarke. "We created a lot of chances in front of the net; we just couldn't get the last tip to hit the target. Yale is a good team that always plays us tough and I'm proud of our team's confident play against them."

Yale scored the lone goal of the game in the 44th minute of play. Becky Brown passed to Mary Kubiuk down the right sideline and Kubiuk dribbled to the right corner of the 18-yard box and shot just past Margulies for the score.

Margulies made four saves in the first half alone, and recorded one in the second half. Yale goalkeeper Ayana Sumiyasu made two saves in her second shutout of the season. The Bulldogs held the edge in shots over the Bobcats 11-8, while sophomore Furtuna Velaj (Stamford, Conn.) led all players in shots with five.

Quinnipiac returns to action Sunday, Sept. 27 when they travel to Central Connecticut State for their first conference game of the 2009 season. The game is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. in New Britain, Conn.
