Bulldogs Looking For Third Road Win
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Last Tuesday, the Yale men's 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.
Yale (3-5-2) is coming off a heartbreaking 2-1 overtime loss to 24th-ranked Dartmouth on Saturday. A familiar combination set up the Bulldogs' goal. Brad Rose corralled a loose ball and centered it to a wide-open Armbrust, who knocked it in. Rose has now assisted on three of Armbrust's team-leading five goals. A different duo combined on the winning goal against Boston College. Aden Farina-Henry one-timed an Andy Shorten cross with less than 10 minutes left in the second half. For his efforts, Farina-Henry was named to the Ivy League Honor Roll on Monday.
Providence (5-5-1, 2-4-1 BIG EAST) is looking to bounce back after a 1-0 double overtime loss against Notre Dame on Saturday. The Fighting Irish scored with 51 seconds left in double overtime to earn the win. Goalkeeper Timothy Murray recorded a season-high nine saves to lead the Friars. The setback against Notre Dame marked the first home loss for the Friars, who are now 3-1-1 at Glay Field this season. In addition, the goal was the first that PC has allowed at home. Timothy Ritter, who has three goals, leads the team in scoring, while Daniel Fabian is second with two goals. Murray has started all 11 matches for the Friars and has recorded six shutouts.
Yale and Providence are playing for the first time since 2005, a 1-1 tie at Reese Stadium. The Bulldogs lead the all-time series 7-5-1.
