The Harvard men's soccer team followed up Saturday's win against Iona with a strong result Tuesday night, outworking a scrappy Boston University side in the team’s last game before the start of Ivy play.
The Harvard men’s soccer team looks to rebound from a turbulent California road trip this Saturday as it concludes its away portion of pre-Ivy League play, visiting Iona.
Junior Sam Brown simultaneously brings down the ball and shields it from a Washington player as co-captain Andrew Wheeler-Omiunu and senior Jake Freeman prepare to make runs off the ball during the two teams’ match on September 11. Harvard will need this level of intensity against Stanford and Cal.
This road trip is of importance not only because it’s the team’s first of the season, but also because the trip kicks off with the Crimson facing its toughest opponents, which includes Stanford, the 2015 NCAA Champions.
After nearly five scoreless halves, senior forward Jake Freeman found the bottom corner of the net off co-captain Andrew Wheeler-Omiunu’s deflection. Freeman’s goal would be the only score of the night, defeating Washington by a final score of 1-0. The win evened the weekend for the Crimson after it lost to Seattle on Sept. 8.
Sometimes, defining moments in a season come at unexpected times. They could come at the end of the season, when a team attempts to clinch a playoff berth, or in the tournament as a team competes to bring home hardware.For the Harvard men’s soccer team (1-0-1), one of these moments could happen this weekend, as it looks to remain undefeated before it goes on the road for the next few weeks.
