Men’s soccer tallies third win
The men’s soccer team added another University Athletic Association (UAA) win Friday afternoon after defeating the New York University Violets; the team is now 11–2–1 and 3–1–1 in the UAA. The game ended with a score of 4–1.
“The team outlook is very positive right now,” said senior Ben Bryant, who took two of the team’s 17 shots on Friday. “We are feeling great about how we played yesterday against NYU. They are a solid team, and we were able to score four on them. We moved the ball very well, and had many scoring chances as a result.”
The Tartans put their first goal on the scoreboard at the 34-minute mark, when first-year midfielder Connor Webb made his first goal of his college career with an assist from junior forward Max Tassano. Just three minutes later, the Tartans increased the deficit to 2–0 when Bryant assisted a corner kick to junior defender Cole Christensen, who headed the ball in net for another goal.
Within the first 15 minutes of the second half, the Tartans scored again. Tassano finished this goal after a long throw from sophomore defender Jakob Rohwer. Before the halfway point in the second period, the Violets scored their first and only goal off a penalty kick.
The Tartans answered the Violets’ goal with a goal of their own just four minutes later, when sophomore forward Daniel Kursman-Neri finished an assist from Christensen.
The game’s conclusion left the Tartans to look forward to another UAA game against Emory University at home this Saturday.
