Streak is still alive for No. 21 Brown

Princeton, NJ - The streak is still alive for the No. 21 Brown men's soccer team as they picked up another win against Princeton on Saturday evening.

Two late goals scored by Brown (8-1-1, 2-0-1) ended the high hopes of the Tigers (5-5-2, 1-2-0) who were less than 10 minutes away from walking away with an Ivy League victory over Brown.

Princeton junior Robbie Morgenroth scored the first goal just six minutes into the game off a rocket launched from the perimeter of the 18-yard past Bears senior goalkeeper David Semenza (Honolulu, HI) to put the Tigers ahead 1-0.

Both teams battled back and forth, each recording eight shots on goal. But it wasn't until 9:40 left on the clock when the Bears tied the game 1-1 on a tap in by sophomore forward Dylan Sheehan (Wolfville, NS) past Tigers goalkeeper, Joe Walter.

While it looked like the game might end in a tie as the minutes dwindled down to 3:42 in the first overtime, the hard-nosed Bears refused to leave Lourie-Love field without a win. Brown's sophomore Rhett Bernstein (San Diego, CA) connected on a cross from Ben Brackett (West Des Moines, IA) and headed the ball into the back of the net to put the Bears up 2-1 and eventually win the game.

Semenza picked up his third win with two saves against the Tigers to bring his record to 3-0-0. Princeton's Walter recorded one save on the night.

Sheehan's goal was his third of the season and Bernstein picked up his fifth. The Bears are back in action at 3 p.m. on Tuesday night as they travel to Providence College (9-3, 6-2) to take on the Friars.
