In an exciting match against the Binghamton Bearcats on Wednesday night, the men’s soccer team was able to come back from a one-goal deficit to win the game with a final score of 2-1. Throughout the season, the Red has found itself falling behind in earlier parts of the game, only to come back strong when it most matters to pull out the late game victory. The Bearcats have found themselves struggling somewhat at the beginning of the season with a record of 2-3-1. While they were able to take the lead in the 51st minute of the game, Red senior defenseman Jake Kirsch scored the equalizing goal just two minutes later. Ultimately, Binghamton was unable to hold off Cornell and fell short when fellow senior captain and defenseman Jake Rinow netted the game-winning goal. This win brings the Red to a 4-0-1 record coming into this weekend’s game against Saint Joseph’s University. Head Coach Jaro Zawislan has been happy with the team’s overall performance this season, but acknowledges that the men ”still have a lot of work to do on both sides of the ball” and that this comprehensive approach is, “something that will continue throughout the whole season.” Rinow echoed this
