Bears Earn 2-0 Shutout Over Cornell

Oct. 23, 2004

Providence, RI - Sophomore Andrew Daniels and senior Marcos Romaneiro led the Brown men's soccer team to a 2-0 victory over Cornell on Saturday at Stevenson Field. The duo recorded the Bears two goals while the Brown defense allowed just three shots on the night. Brown, now 6-4-2 overall and 2-2 in league play, has shutout the Big Red three straight times, dating back to the 2002 season.

Daniels scored what proved to be the game-winning goal at the 34:54 mark when he headed in a cross from freshman Laurent Manuel. Junior Keith Caldwell also picked up an assist on the play. Daniels has racked up four goals in the last five games for the Bears.

Romaneiro added an insurance goal with 15 minutes left to play in the game. Freshman Ngange Akale, who earned his first collegiate start, settled the ball at the top edge of the box and fed the ball to Romaneiro at the far corner. Romaneiro dribbled around a crowd of Cornell defenders and slide a low shot past the Big Red keeper. He leads the team with 12 points on the season with 11 of them coming in the last five games.

Cornell, winless in the Ivy League, only managed two shots on goal while the Bears fired off 8. The Big Red have not defeated Brown since 1999.

Brown will play two road games this coming week, starting on Tuesday when it faces Boston University at 7 p.m. The team will return to league play on Saturday when it travels to 14th ranked Penn for a 2 p.m. match.
