Team of the Week

Yale posted a 10-6 win against then-No. 10 Maryland on Feb. 21, the Bulldogs first win vs. the Terrapins since 1925.

Tied after three quarters, Yale scored four goals and shut out Maryland in the final 15 minutes.

The victory catapulted the Elis six spots to No. 8 in the latest Inside Lacrosse Poll and nine spots to No. 7 in the USILA Coaches’ Poll.

It’s the first time since March 2014 for Yale to be ranked in the top 10.

Conrad Oberbeck led the Bulldogs with three goals and two assists. Ben Reeves and Jeff Cimbalista added two goals and Michael Keasey recorded three points.

Yale (2-0) aims for its first 3-0 start since 2011 when it faces Bryant (1-2) Feb. 28.
