M. Soccer Falls to Syracuse, Wins Against Hartwick

Men’s soccer head coach Jaro Zawislan’s return to his old stomping ground of Syracuse may not have unfolded exactly as planned, but there was a silver lining to the long weekend, as the Red (1-1) picked up its first win of the season against Hartwick (1-1-1), and the first of Zawislan’s tenure as coach. A late-game penalty kick gave Syracuse (1-2) the advantage in Saturday night’s matchup, but Cornell would rebound in commanding fashion on Monday night –– shutting out Hartwick by a score of 1-0. In doing so, the Red equaled its win total from last season and snapped an 11-game losing streak dating back to Sept. 21, 2008.

Woes Continue as Men’s Soccer Falls to Penn St.

With the men’s soccer team down 3-0 to visiting Penn St. in the final minutes of last night’s contest, someone in the bleachers yelled, “Make it happen!”
Sophomore midfielder Scott Caldwell followed instructions, booting a shot from the left side that made it past the Penn St. goalie just before the final buzzer. But it was too little, too late. The Red (1-9, 0-2 Ivy) had just given up two goals to the Nittany Lions (4-7-2, 1-2 Big Ten) in the last 10 minutes of the game, and a comeback was not in store for the home team.
