Men’s Soccer Splits Difficult Opening Weekend

Cornell men’s Soccer (1-1, 0-0 Ivy) kicked off its season last week with back-to-back ranked away matchups against No. 22 Vermont (3-1, 0-0 America East) and No. 13 New Hampshire (2-1-1, 0-0 America East). Following a very successful 2022 season, which concluded with an NCAA tournament third round run, the Red looked to start this season off strong. 

Against Vermont, Cornell faced a unique challenge. The Catamounts played very directly, with goalkeeper Jack Owen constantly looking to play long balls forward towards towering strikers Mujtaba Mirhasan and Max Murray.

Women’s Soccer Stays Undefeated to Start the Season, Beating Marist and Syracuse

As women’s soccer continues to ramp up its season, it had an opportunity to kick start a strong campaign this past week when it took on Marist and Syracuse. The Red was up to the occasion, shutting out both of its opponents and allowing just three shots on goal across the two games. With a 2-0 win over the Red Foxes and a 1-0 victory over the Orange, Cornell remains undefeated heading into week three of the season. The Red (2-0-1) was coming off a 2-2 draw against Lehigh. Cornell opened the 2022 season with three consecutive losses, and the team was determined to flip the script this year.
