Bulldogs Fall 3-2 At Princeton In Season Finale
PRINCETON, N.J. – The Yale men's soccer team got off to a great start in Saturday's season finale at Princeton. The Bulldogs scored twice in the first 10 minutes.
The Tigers, though, showed why they are one of the top scoring teams in the Ivy League. Princeton got three goals over the remaining 80 minutes, including the game-winner from Cameron Porter, to escape with a 3-2 victory at Roberts Stadium.
Yale finishes the season with a 2-3-2 Ivy record, but will be left thinking about what could have been. The Bulldogs had leads in two of their league losses, including against Penn who went on to claim the Ivy title. Yale also had a lead in a tie with Columbia.
Kirdzik, a freshman, also set up the second goal when he sent a long ball forward to Scott Armbrust, who fired a shot past Princeton goalkeeper Seth MacMillan.
Princeton got one back before the end of the first half and then tied it early in the second half. Porter's game-winner came with 28 minutes left when he headed in an Andrew Mills pass.
Jacobson (5 goals, 1 assist) and Kirdzik (4 goals, 3 assists) finished as the Bulldogs' leading scorers with 11 points apiece.
