Brian Norman

On Wednesday afternoon, the Yale Bulldogs stormed into Hamden and took care of the Quinnipiac Bobcats 14-5 in the annual Battle of Whitney Avenue. 

Yale got off to a hot start as they scored two goals within the first five minutes; however, Maddie Deegan was able to respond for the Bobcats making it a 2-1 lead for the Bulldogs.

Yale went on to dominate the first quarter after that and scored three unanswered goals including a hat-trick from Jenna Collignon to make it 5-1 Yale after the first quarter. 

The Bobcats would come out hot in the second quarter after sophomore Abby Wise was able to put in her third goal of the season, cutting the Yale lead to three.

Shortly after, Bri Carrasquillo would put one in for the Bulldogs, it seemed like a comeback was forming for the Bobcats as Sophia Iaccino and Mia Delmond would put two in and make it a two-score game before the half. 

Maggie Deegan would then cap off her two-score day to start the second half making it a one-score game for the Bobcats. 

It was all Yale from then on as they scored five unanswered goals in the third quarter which included Jenna Collignon’s fourth goal of the game and her eighth in two games.

The onslaught from Yale continued into the fourth as Taylor Lane and Taylor Everson both put in their second goals of the game to make it 13-5 Yale late into the fourth quarter. 

Bri Carrasquillo then capped off her first hat trick of the season to make it a 14-5 win over the Bobcats.

Although she didn’t record a goal, Olivia Penoyer’s six assists would help cap off the big victory for the Bulldogs.

Despite a very forgetful second half for the Bobcats the team still showed some bright spots throughout as they look to bounce back on the road against UMass Lowell at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 1st.
