"It is clear that work still needs to be done to make sports more inclusive. My time on the Sports Board has provided proof, albeit on a smaller scale, that it is possible for the industry to be inclusive and for women to play an active and meaningful role in it."
Harvard men’s soccer finished in a 1-1 draw for the second weekend in a row, unable to secure the victory over Princeton. The Tigers got on the board first after 77 minutes of play. Seven minutes later, sophomore forward Philip Hausen found the back of the net to tie it up.
“Past performance is not indicative of future results”: so often seen in the fine print of historical financial data, the phrase applied in Saturday’s soccer game. In its penultimate road match of the season, the Harvard men’s soccer team (2-6-2, 1-1 Ivy League) faced off against a team it had not lost to since 2012, including a 4-0 route in 2016.
Despite the loss, the Crimson gave a strong performance that can serve as a base upon which to build for the rest of the season.
“We had a few guys who weren’t healthy for the game so I think once they get back in the lineup that could help us with our attack going forward,” Gylling said. “We’re also talking about keeping our outside mids wider and looking for more productivity from the forwards.”
The third time might be the charm for the Harvard men’s soccer team (0-2, 0-0 Ivy League), which is still on the hunt for its first win of the season after being shut out twice during its opening weekend.
With just three minutes left in the game, senior forward Jake Freeman fed a ball through Iona’s defense to junior midfielder Christian Sady, who slid the ball in near post to put Harvard up 2-1 and clinch the win.
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.
