No. 20 Yale Nips No. 19 Bryant in Third Straight Overtime Win

The sides combined to go 0 for 9 on extra-man opportunities, with Bryant scoreless on five attempts. The Bulldogs forced 10 caused turnovers on the evening, including three from Glenn Maiorano and two from Poli, who finished the day with three goals off three shots.

"We lost this game because their close defense dominated our attack," said Pressler. "Our three lead players went 1 for 19 shooting, so at the end of the day, we just didn't get the job done on offense. Our inability to shoot the ball well cost us today."

Bryant is now 1-2 in overtime battles on the 2012 season, but has little time to regroup before Sunday's Senior Day home finale (1:00 p.m.) against Northeast Conference foe Wagner College.

"There's no looking back here," said Pressler. "We have a quick turnaround to our next game, very similar to that of the NEC Tournament, against a Wagner team that has a lot of momentum right now. Mentally and emotionally, we spent a lot of energy out there tonight and didn't get it done, so this is going to be a heck of a test for us on Sunday."
