CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Playing under the lights at Jordan Field for the first time this season, Harvard men's soccer was tripped up by Seattle, 1-0, on Thursday night. Harvard moved to 1-1-1 with the result, while Seattle improved to 2-2.
Junior Kyle Parks made five saves for the Crimson in goal, while junior Sam Brown and sophomore Cesar Farias tallied two shots apiece on the offensive end. The Crimson was outshot, 12-7, in the contest, but evened the tally at 6-6 in the second period.
Jeff Rose put Seattle on the board with a goal in the 45th minute, scoring with 59 seconds remaining in the opening period. Alex Roldan provided the assist on the play.
Farias had a pair of shots in the opening five minutes of the second half, with the latter forcing Seattle's RJ Noll into a sprawling save. Harvard had four more shots in the half, and had a chance in the final seconds to net the equalizer, but the goalkeeper swatted the free kick away to close the contest.
Harvard men's soccer continues its non-league schedule on Sunday, Sept. 11 when Washington visits Jordan Field. The 7 p.m. kickoff will be broadcast on the Ivy League Digital Network.
