When the Yale mens soccer team walks off the Reese Stadium field for the final time in 2009 following Saturdays game with Brown, they should take a good look around.

Construction of Phase II of the Reese Stadium Project will commence on Nov. 9 and will consist of a new stadium structure which will include four team rooms, expanded bleachers, a press box, VIP seating areas and an entryway plaza.

After being shutout in its last two games, the Yale mens soccer team needed someone to step up Saturday against Columbia. Brad Rose, the Bulldogs leading scorer, was a logical candidate, and he delivered, scoring twice as Yale edged the Lions 2-1 on a mild night at the Columbia Soccer Stadium.
New York City has been anything but a house of horrors for the Yale mens soccer team in recent years. The Bulldogs have come away victorious on their last three trips to Columbia and will be looking to make it four in a row when they visit the Lions on Saturday. Kickoff at the Columbia Soccer Stadium is set for 7 p.m.
With less than ideal conditions at Rhodes Field, it was pretty apparent that whoever scored first would have a big advantage in Saturdays Yale-Penn mens soccer game. It took awhile, but it was the Quakers who got on the board first, and Travis Cantrells goal at 67:46 was the only goal of the game as Penn edged the Bulldogs on a rainy afternoon.
Due to the threat of heavy rain in Philadelphia, the start of the Yale-Penn mens soccer game has been moved to 2:30 p.m. at Rhodes Field. The game was originally scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff. The Yale-Penn womens game will now start at noon.
The Yale mens soccer team has done its fair share of traveling so far this season. It just hasnt been for an Ivy League game yet.

The Yale mens soccer team erupted for four goals in Saturdays thrilling victory over Cornell. The Bulldogs offense may get a tougher test on Tuesday night against UConn. The Huskies have allowed only six goals in their 13 games. Kickoff at Reese Stadium is slated for 7 p.m.
It didnt take long for the Yale mens soccer team to realize it could play with sixth-ranked UConn Tuesday night. Chris Dennen had a great opportunity to get the Bulldogs on the board just two minutes in, but Josh Ford made an acrobatic save to knock away his header. That was a world class save, said Yale head coach Brian Tompkins. Even though it didnt go in, I think it gave us a little confidence. Yale went on to outshoot the Huskies 12-11, but UConn capitalized on its chances en route to a 2-0 victory before a crowd of 527 at Reese Stadium.
Yale and Cornell each has played overtime in their first two Ivy League games. The difference is the Big Red escaped with ties in both games, while the Bulldogs were on the wrong end of heartbreaking defeats. As a result, fans could be in for a little bonus soccer when the two teams meet on Saturday. Kickoff at Reese Stadium is slated for 7 p.m.
After losing its first two Ivy League games in overtime, the thought of going to extra time with Cornell on Saturday certainly wouldnt have been comforting to the Yale mens soccer team. With the score tied at 3-3 and less than 30 seconds left, it sure looked like that would be the scenario the Bulldogs would face. Chris Dennen had other ideas. His goal with 13 seconds remaining lifted Yale to a thrilling 4-3 victory over the Big Red on a cold night at Reese Stadium.
Too many times this season it seems the Yale mens soccer team has been on the wrong end of dramatic finishes. So it was nice for the Bulldogs to have some late-game heroics of their own on Tuesday afternoon at Providence. Brad Rose scored with 3:32 left in the second half as Yale earned a hard-fought 1-1 tie with the Friars on a breezy afternoon at Glay Field.
Last Tuesday, the Yale mens soccer team built some positive momentum with an impressive 2-1 victory over Boston College. The Bulldogs will be looking for a similar outcome when they travel to Providence this Tuesday. Kickoff at Glay Field is set for 3 p.m.
The Yale mens soccer team did an excellent job of containing Daniel Keat, the Ivy Leagues leading scorer, during Saturdays game with Dartmouth. The Bulldogs limited him to only one shot. Yale, though, didnt have an answer for Lucky Mkosana. Mkosona scored a pair of goals, including the game winner in the final minute of the first overtime, to lift the 24th-ranked Big Green to a 2-1 victory on a cool and windy afternoon at Reese Stadium.
Yales defense has been stingy in the last two games, allowing just two goals. The Bulldogs, though, will get a stern test when 24th-ranked Dartmouth comes to town on Saturday. The Big Green has the 11th most potent offense in Division I, averaging nearly 2.5 goals per game. Kickoff at Reese Stadium is slated for 4:30 p.m.
Milan Ticas goal midway through the second half of Tuesday nights game with Boston College tied the score at 1-1 and snapped a 256-minute scoreless drought for the Yale mens soccer team. The Bulldogs didnt have to wait nearly as long for another goal. Aden Farina-Henry scored 10 minutes later as Yale knocked off the Eagles 2-1 at Newton Campus Field.
The last two weeks have been very frustrating for the Yale mens soccer team. The Bulldogs have dropped a pair of overtime decisions and lost another game where they had a big edge in shots and possession time. Tuesday night, Yale will meet a team in a similar frame of mind.

A long night had a heartbreaking ending for the Yale mens soccer team. Brian Rogers knocked in an Adam Rousmaniere cross with 7:07 left in the second overtime to lift eighth-ranked Harvard to a 1-0 victory over Yale on a rainy and stormy night at Reese Stadium.
At halftime of Saturday mens soccer game with Harvard, Yale will honor the 1999 team which upset defending NCAA champion Indiana in its season opener and topped Big East regular season champion Rutgers in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The 2009 Bulldogs are looking to create memories of their own, and a victory over the eighth-ranked Crimson would be a big step in the right direction. Kickoff at Reese Stadium is slated for 7 p.m.
Illness and injuries left the Yale mens soccer team quite shorthanded for Tuesdays game with Sacred Heart. Nevertheless, Yale outshot the Pioneers 15-11 and had a big edge in possession time. The Bulldogs, though, couldnt take advantage of their scoring chances. Sacred Heart, on the other hand, capitalized on almost every opportunity. The result was a deceiving 4-0 victory for the Pioneers on a breezy afternoon at Campus Field.
