Bulldogs Fall To Hartwick 2-0
Sept. 19, 2004
NEW HAVEN, CONN. -- Adam Mitchinson scored twice and Josh Waganaar made nine saves in goal as Hartwick blanked Yale 2-0 on the second day of the Yale Classic Presented By Barnes & Noble. The Bulldogs outshot the Hawks 19-4. Andrew Dealy and Lindsey Williams were both named to the all-tournament team for Yale.
"This was probably our best 90 minutes of the season," said Yale head coach Brian Tompkins. "We created a lot of chances but couldn't finish them. In spite of the score, I'm encouraged. We're going to keep working hard and hopefully our luck will change."
Hartwick (3-1-2) jumped on the board first when Mitchinson knocked in Edwin Ruiz's corner kick at 2:22. The Bulldogs (0-4) controlled play for much of the rest of half, outshooting the Hawks 9-3. Yale also had the better of the play for much of the second half, but Mitchinson tallied the only goal at 71:52 to make it 2-0.
Geoff Hollington made two saves in goal for the Bulldogs.
Mitchinson, Ruiz and Justin Brandt were named to the all-tournament team for Hartwick, which finished third in the tournament. Hartwick and Duquesne both went 1-1 but the Dukes scored four goals to Hartwick's three.
In the first game of the day, Brown edged Duquesne 2-1 to win the tournament title. Ibrahim Diane deflected in Brian Weeks' cross in the 75th minute to snap a 1-1 tie and lift the Bears to the win. After a scoreless first half, Brown's Keith Caldwell scored at 63:45, but Duquesne answered less than two minutes later when Noah Salsi scored.
Brown midfielder Jeff Larentowicz was named the tournament most valuable player. Diane, Weeks and Marcos Romaneiro were all named to the all-tournament team. Duquesne's Steve Mellor, Matt Mehler and Jason Sourbeer were named to the all-tournament team as well.
The Bulldogs return to action next Friday when they play SMU in the first day of the Tulsa Classic.
