M. SOCCER | Big Green brings big offense

Men’s soccer will face the second-ranked team in the Ivy League when it plays Dartmouth tomorrow. The Big Green (4–3–2) is on a four-game Ivy winning streak, as it ended last season by beating No. 14 Brown before making it all the way to the third round of the NCAA tournament, with wins over No. […]

M. SOCCER | Elis face Cantabs in Ivy opener

Ivy League season starts this Saturday for men’s soccer as Harvard (2–5–1) will visit the Bulldogs for a 7 p.m. night game under the lights of Reese Stadium for Alumni Day.

M. SOCCER | Huskies deny miracle tie in final minute

The odds did not favor the Yale men’s soccer team Tuesday night in its game against No. 1 UConn. The Bulldogs were playing their third game in five days — their second road game in three days — against the No. 1-ranked team in the nation, a team that had shut out its past five […]

M. SOCCER | Elis split weekend, prepare for No. 2 UConn

Going into this weekend, the men’s soccer team was perfect at home and winless on the road. But the Bulldogs reversed their fortunes when they played Fairfield and URI, falling at home before earning their first away victory. Even though Yale (4–3–1) outshot Fairfield 15–8, the Bulldogs were unable to find the net. The Stags […]

M. SOCCER | Fairfield and URI up ahead for Yale

After a 7–0 steamrolling of Marist last Sunday, the men’s soccer team will look to keep up the speed when it faces Fairfield University tonight at Reese Stadium. Still, head coach Brian Tompkins said it would be unrealistic to expect a replication of Sunday’s performance, calling the numbers against Marist a “statistical anomaly.” Yale’s scoring […]

M. SOCCER | Bulldogs chew up Marist, 7–0

At the start of the men’s soccer team’s Sunday game against Marist, the Red Foxes looked strong, forcing goalkeeper Bobby Thalman ’12 to make three saves in the first ten minutes.

M. SOCCER | Bulldogs hungry for revenge

Yale men’s soccer (2–2–0) is looking for revenge this weekend.

M. SOCCER | Neil goal lifts Elis over QPac

The men’s soccer team went 1–1 for the second time in as many weekends, but this time, the Bulldogs showed greater resiliency.

“My family was living in Saudi Arabia at the time of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.”

My family was living in Saudi Arabia at the time of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. It was a school night, and I was doing homework. My dad called me downstairs, yelling, “You have to come see this.” All I saw was the image of a tower, spewing torrents of black smoke. “Cool,” I said half-heartedly. […]


M. SOCCER | Yale may face hostile crowd at home

This weekend looks to be the most intense on Yale’s (1–1–0) nonconference schedule, as the Elis face cross-town rivals Quinnipiac (0-2-0) at home tonight, and then look to upset No. 25 Red Storm at St. John’s (2-1-0) on Sunday. Despite playing at home, the environment may be more like a road game for the Bulldogs. […]

M. SOCCER | Rose ’12 looking for one last shot

The UConn defender decided to slide-tackle forward Brad Rose ’12 at exactly the wrong moment: right when he was shooting the ball. The defender slid in for the tackle, not only hitting the ball, but Rose’s shooting foot as well, twisting it so that the toes on his right foot were unnaturally pointing away from […]
