No. 25 Bears Battle to 1-1 Draw Against San Francisco

The No. 25 Brown men’s soccer team (4-0-3) battled to a 1-1 draw against University of San Francisco this afternoon at Negoesco Stadium. The Dons (3-3-1) held onto a 1-0 lead deep in the second half, but Brown’s Dylan Remick (Inverness, IL) evened the score in the 81st minute and forced the game into overtime.

San Francisco got on the scoreboard at the 17:35 mark when senior All-American Conor Chinn split two Brown defenders and blasted the ball past goalkeeper Paul Grandstrand (Orono, MN) to go ahead 1-0.

The Dons outshot the Bears 6-2 in the first 45 minutes of play, but the Bears picked up the offense in the second half earning a 4-2 advantage in shots.

Despite USF’s 12-8 advantage in shots, Brown dominate in corner kicks, 9-2. Austin Mandel (Tarzana, CA) attempted a team-high three shots this afternoon, as both Remick and junior captain David Walls (Leeds, England) added two.

Despite having just nine players on the field, USF could not capitalize against a staunch Brown defense led by Grandstrand (4-0-3), who recorded six saves this afternoon. Brown’s Remick was able to come up with a huge goal for the Bears at the 81:41 mark after he riffled a ball home from point blank range during a melee in the box.

After making three saves in net in 64:50 minutes of play, USF’s goalkeeper Franco Carotenuto (1-1-1) left the game due to an injury and was replaced by freshman Brendan Roslund, who posted a pair of saves in 45 minutes of action.

The Bears will now head back east where it will host Boston University at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 30. Brown opens up Ivy League play when it travels to New York, NY, to take on the Columbia Lions at 7:00 p.m. on Oct. 3.
