Red Men’s Soccer Look to Further Four Game Win Streak Tuesday against rival Syracuse

The Red Men’s Soccer team (4-1) are winners of four straight and look to carry that momentum into Tuesday’s twilight matchup against rival Syracuse University (4-3). The Battle for Central New York will kick off at 7 p.m. at Berman Field, where Cornell’s eleven will look to capture regional pride and beat the Orange at home for the first time since 1998.

Cornell Men’s Soccer Seeks Elusive Ivy Win in Final Match Against Columbia

In a season with very few high points, the Cornell men’s soccer team still has a chance to get its first Ivy League win of the season, as the Red travels to Columbia on Sunday for its season finale. Head coach John Smith admits that while the season hasn’t gone the way anyone would have liked, it “has gone how [he] expected.”

“I have been involved long enough to know where you need to be at in order to succeed at this level, and the fact is we are currently not where we need to be, but have showed significant signs of improvement and we will ultimately get there — that much I am sure about,” Smith said. Regardless of how the season has shaped up, Smith is confident that the Red (1-13-2, 0-6-0 Ivy) will come out and finish the season strong. “Coming into the final game, I know this group will work hard and do their very best to produce a positive result,” he said. “We played our best game of the season against Dartmouth and I expect a similar performance against Columbia.”

The game was originally scheduled for Saturday, but after the announcement came that Harvard suspended its soccer team, the game was rescheduled so that all teams could complete the full seven-game Ivy season.
