Yale squash team edges Rochester

When I talked to Yale men's squash team captain Ryan Dowd on Friday, he told me the Bulldogs were in for a dogfight with Rochester on Saturday.
The Bulldogs were indeed but pulled out a 5-4 win to knock off the No. 4 team on its homecourt.

Yale should take over the No. 1 spot in the nation when the new poll is released on Monday.

Rochester's Andres Duany defeated junior Kenneth Chan 3-0 at the No. 1 spot, but junior Hywel Robinson (3-2) and junior Richard Dodd (also 3-2) earned tough wins at the No. 2 and No. 3 spots, respectively, to spark the Elis.

Three of the big winners from Yale's streak-busting win over No. 1 Trinity also grabbed victories, as captain Ryan Dowd (3-0), sophomore Neil Martin (3-2) and senior Robby Berner (3-0) won at 5, 6 and 7.

The loss was only the second of Rochester's season (the other came at the hands of Ancient Eight rival Princeton). With the win, Yale moves its record to 9-0.
