MEN’S SOCCER | Red Hopes to Snag Second Ivy Win

Print More


After securing a well fought-for victory against Yale this past week, Cornell (8-4-1) looks to move back into league contention this Saturday with a mid-season showdown at Brown (3-4-5). The win against Yale was the Red’s first in the Ivy League.

The game winner against Yale came, once again, at the foot of Conor Goepel, who now has six goals so far this season. The Red played a technically sound game, with players in constant motion and the ball moving fluidly around the field. This allowed the team to generate chances throughout the game, including one from freshman Jonathan Cullom that resulted in a one-on-one opportunity with the goalie in the 38th minute. Cullom’s shot was saved by Yale goalkeeper Blake Brown, but it was yet another example of a strong transition play generated by the Red defense. The sequence was started by a long pass from senior defender Peter Chodas, who has played a pivotal role on both defense and offense for the Red this season.
