Men's Soccer Battles Northeastern To 1-1 Draw

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard battled Northeastern to a 1-1 draw in men's soccer action, Wednesday evening at Jordan Field.

The Crimson struck first scoring 10 minutes into the contest. Freshman Paolo Belloni-Urso connected with sophomore Philip Hausen at the near side post, who was able to fire a shot into the back of the net. However, midway through the half the Huskies knotted up the match scoring from outside the 18-yard box. 

Both squads had chances to pull ahead in the second period. With under four minutes to play in regulation, the Crimson nearly broke the scoreless tie with back-to-back shots on net but the Northeastern goalkeeper forced overtime coming up with the two saves.

Just before the end of the second overtime period, senior goalkeeper Kyle Parks recorded his seventh save of the match, tipping a shot by Northeastern's Harry Swartz over the net, to seal the tie.
