Sophomore All-American Andre Blake (May Pen, Jamaica) made seven saves on the day to earn the result.

UConn (3-1-0) is coming off a 2-0 victory over Cornell on Monday night at Joseph J. Morrone Stadium. Nick Zuniga (Norwalk, Conn.) and Andrew Geres (Portland, Conn.) tallied their first goals of the season in the second half as the Husky defense recorded its second shutout of the season.
