Remick Scores Golden Goal to Lead No. 19 Brown to 2-1 Victory over Harvard

Providence, RI- Senior defender Dylan Remick (Inverness, IL) scored just six minutes into the first overtime period to lift the No. 19 Brown men's soccer team to a 2-1 victory over the visiting Harvard Crimson on Saturday night at Stevenson Field.  The Bears improved to 9-1-2 overall with a 2-0-1 m ark in the Ivy League, while Harvard dropped to 1-7-3 on the year and remains winless in conference action with a 0-2-1 record. 

Senior forward Bobby Belair (Myrtle Beach, SC) was a consistent force for the Bears this evening and was a spark on offense taking three shots, two of which were on goal.  Belair tallied the first goal of the game, and his third of the season, in the 39th minute when sophomore Voltaire Escalona (Blue Bell, PA) sent a cross to the far post that Belair put in with a diving header to give the Bears a 1-0 lead at the intermission. 

Harvard came right out and evened the score just 1:11 into the second period when Jake Freeman went one-on-one with goalkeeper Sam Kernan-Schloss  after getting by the Bears' back line.  Freeman blasted a shot to the low left corner of the net that was out of reach by Kernan-Schloss.   Neither team scored for the remainder of the half to send the game into overtime.

Harvard came out and took the first shot three minutes into overtime that went wide, and Brown's Ben Maurey had a shot in the 94th minute that went high.  But just two minutes later, freshman Tim Whalen (Amston, CT) crossed the ball to Remick who put one over the goalkeeper and into the net to end the game.  The goal was Remick's second of the season.

Brown outshot Harvard 22-13 for the game, but was edged 6-5 in corner kicks.  Kernan-Schloss ended the night with five saves for the Bears, while Mendez tallied eight for the Crimson.

Brown is back in action on Tuesday, Oct. 16th at Boston College.  Kick-off is scheduled for 4 p.m.
