With only three contests remaining in Ivy play, every match is crucial in the Harvard men’s soccer team’s bid to finish in the top half of the Ancient Eight.
The Harvard men’s soccer team traveled west for its final weekend before the start of Ivy League play but returned empty-handed, falling to Cal Poly on Friday night, 2-1, and to No. 3 UC Santa Barbara, 1-0, on Sunday afternoon.
Two goals, two leads, but ultimately, another loss. Such was the case for the Harvard men’s soccer team, which fell, 3-2, against Princeton on Saturday afternoon at Ohiri Field.
Although the Crimson entered the second half with a 1-0 advantage over Cornell, the Big Red needed only 15 minutes to notch three consecutive goals, taking back the lead to come away with a 3-1 victory Saturday afternoon.
Harvard (2-4-1) fell to Stanford Friday night, 1-0, before escaping Santa Clara Sunday with a scoreless draw, despite being outshot by a three-to-one margin by the No. 25 Broncos.
