Kansas soccer rolls to 4-1 win over Yale

The Kansas soccer team won its fourth consecutive home game on Sunday, 4-1 over Yale at Rock Chalk Park.

Kansas (6-2) has now won six of its last seven games.

“I thought we played very well for a majority of the game,” KU coach Mark Francis said after the win. “We definitely ran out of gas, which is why we played 18 players. Some of the girls that are going to play a lot of minutes next week did not have to play as many today, so that’s going to help us in the long run. We needed our bench today and they stepped up.”

Juniors Kate Dreyer and Shira Elinav each scored a goal, while freshman Saige Wimes scored the first two goals of her career. The four goals were a season high for the Jayhawks. Yale, which fell to 3-2-1 on the season, did not score until the 89th minute of the match.

Kansas held a 21-10 shot advantage and fired 12 shots on goal.

Next up, Kansas will head to Florida to wrap up its non-conference schedule. The Jayhawks will play at Florida Atlantic on Thursday and at South Florida on Sunday. Both matches will be broadcast on ESPN+.
