Crow, Quackenbush Lead the Way for Yale Past Columbia

Seven points for Crow, Yale's captain, is the most by a Bulldog since Rhodes had eight in a 17-13 win vs. Harvard Apr. 3, 2010.

"That's what you would expect from a senior captain, and then some," said Phillips.

It was a telling sign of the mutual respect among Yale's goalies that one of the first people to congratulate Quackenbush after the game was sophomore goalkeeper Erin McMullan, who had started the past five games.

For Crow, Saturday was another high point in a senior season that has helped answer the question of what she could do if completely healthy. She now has doubled her previous career high in goals (24 to 12) and has more than doubled her career highs in assists (11 to 5) and points (35 to 17). Crow has also played in a career-high 12 games, as she had been limited to no more than 11 by various injuries in each of her first three years.

"This is the first year that she has played the whole season," Phillips said. "That's why you're seeing the tremendous results she has had. She's a great player."

And while Saturday was Senior Day, it was actually not Crow and Quackenbush's last scheduled game on the Reese Stadium turf. That comes Wednesday, when the Bulldogs host Brown at 4:00 p.m.
