Nine Bulldogs to Play Final Career Game at Home
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Bulldogs will host the first-place Tigers for the final game of their 2018 season. This matchup marks the final career game for nine seniors on the Eli roster. The Senior Day ceremonies will begin at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday with kickoff set for 4 p.m. at Reese Stadium. The game will be also available on ESPN+.
Here are notes on the matchup:
- Yale (6-6-3, 1-3-2 Ivy) will honor a large class of nine seniors – Nicky Downs, Kyle Kenagy, Lucas Kirby, James Kochanski, An Le, Robert Mooney, Kees Schipper, Allec Willis, and Cameron Riach – who have been great representatives of Yale and the men's soccer program over the last four years.
- The Bulldogs will finish above .500 for the first time since 2011 with a win on Saturday.
- First-year sensation Paolo Carroll leads the Elis with 13 points (four goals, five assists). Downs follows closely behind with 12 points (four goals, four assists).
- In goal, Tom Wallenstein leads the way with 11 starts and a 1.25 GAA for the Elis. First year Elian Haddock has also contributed three starts.
- Last season, an overtime goal from Aldo Quevedo was the lone score in a 1-0 Yale victory.
- The Bulldogs lead the all-time series against Princeton 44-40-23.
The Tigers (10-4-2, 5-0-1 Ivy) sit in first in the Ivy League with one conference game remaining. A win against the Bulldogs will guarantee a conference championship for Princeton, who has gone unbeaten in its last eight contests. The league leaders have found success behind a stifling defense that boasts a .63 GAA. Offensively, Gaby Paniagua and Jeremy Colvin are first and second, respectively, in the conference in shots. Colvin leads Princeton and is tied for second in the Ivy League in goals with five, all of which have been game winners. The Tigers come to New Haven on the heels of a 2-1 overtime victory over Penn.
