Foxborough, Massachusetts - Second time was not the charm for Albany against Yale.
Yale jumped out 7-0 and never looked back as the Bulldogs defeated Albany in the NCAA semifinals at Gillette Stadium on Saturday, 20-11 in a rematch from a previous stunner earlier in the year.
Matt Gaudet got going early with five goals on five shots, and by the time the Great Danes' defense had any answers, it was too late. Ben Reeves went off for 11 points while Jackson Morrill notched five assists as the Bulldogs led from start to finish to advance to Monday's championship contest.
In a rematch from their April 22 matchup, the Bulldogs were more dominant the second time around. While the consensus was it would be a different game as Scott Marr's crew adjusted to the Bulldogs, Yale was prepared to beat the Great Danes with their speed and mismatches on offense.
