Harvard Men’s Soccer Suffers Home Loss to Brown, 1-0

Brett Conrad and the Crimson will return to action against Princeton Oct. 22 (Gil Talbot).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Crimson men's soccer team outshot Brown, 9-7, but Harvard dropped a home Ivy League game to the Bears by a score of 1-0 Saturday evening. Brett Conrad made one save in net for the Crimson, while Brown goalkeeper Sam Kernan-Schloss turned aside three Harvard shots.

In a defensive first half, the Bears broke through first scoring on a goal by Eric Coleman at 30:06. T.J. Popolizio sent a pass into the box, and Coleman fought off traffic in front and fired the ball into the left corner of the net.

Brown (7-4-1, 2-1-0 Ivy League) outshot Harvard (2-9-1, 0-3-0), 6-5, in the first half, while each team managed one corner kick apiece.

In the second half, the Crimson mustered two shots on net, but Kernan-Schloss stopped a blast from 25 yards out by Michael Innocenzi at 52:08, as well as a chance by Ross Friedman at 65:12. Harvard held a 4-1 edge in shots for the second half, but could not find the equalizer. Both teams earned two corner kicks on the evening.

Up next, Harvard will host Princeton at Ohiri Field Saturday, Oct. 22 at 1:30 p.m.
