Six Bears Earn All-Ivy Honors

Providence, R.I. – Six members of the No. 15 ranked NCAA Tournament bound Brown men's soccer team received All-Ivy honors at the conclusion of the 2012-13 regular season. Senior defenders Dylan Remick (Inverness, IL) and Eric Robertson (San Antonio, TX), senior midfielder Thomas McNamara (West Nyack, NY), and sophomore forward Ben Maurey (Downingtown, PA) earned First Team All-Ivy honors. Senior defender Ryan McDuff (Plano, TX) and senior goalkeeper Sam Kernan-Schloss (Arlington, VA) were named to the Second Team.

Remick, a four-year starter for the Bears, earned his third First Team All-Ivy honor and was a unanimous selection for the second consecutive season. A NEISL All-Star, Remick earned All-Tournament Team honors at the Brown Soccer Classic and was the Tournament MVP at the Ocean State Classic for his outstanding defensive efforts. A starter in 15 of Brown's 16 games this season, Remick has led a back line that has allowed just 10 goals and shut out 10 opponents. He earned a spot on the College Soccer News National Team of the Week on Oct. 15, and most recently picked up First Team CoSIDA/Capitol One Academic All-District honors.

Robertson, another key defender for the Bears, earned Second Team honors last season and is earning First Team honors for the first time. A team captain and 2012 NEISL All-Star, Robertson has started in all 17 games and earned All-Tournament Team hoors at both the Brown Soccer Classic and Ocean State Classic. Robertson has six points on the year with three goals, including one game winner. He has helped the Bears to 10 shutouts, and had guided a defense that has allowed just 10 goals on the year.

McNamara, a four-year starter, was a 2012 NEISL All-Star selection and has started in all 17 games for the Bears this season. He earned All-Tournament Team honors at the Brown Soccer Classic, and is currently second on the team in scoring with 10 points on three goals, including one game-winner, and four assists. McNamara is earning his second All-Ivy honor in his career.

Maurey, the Bears' leading scorer with 12 points on five goals, including four game winners, and two assists, has come on strong late in the season. Scoring four goals in the four of the Bears' last five games, Maurey earned Ivy League Player of the Week honors on Oct. 11 after scoring two game-winners in games against Boston College and then No. 10 Cornell. He also garnered a spot on the College Soccer News National Team of the Week.

McDuff, a Senior CLASS finalist, has played a major role in the Bears' defensive success over the last four years. A two-year team captain, McDuff has started in all 17 games and has helped the Bears' defense to 10 shutouts and has allowed opponents to just 10 goals. He was named an NEISL All-Star, and is earning All-Ivy honors for the first time in his career.

Kernan-Schloss, a two-year starter in goal, is earning his All-Ivy honor of his career. A 2011 and 2012 First Team CoSIDA/Capitol One Academic All-District selection and 2011 Academic All-Ivy honoree, Kernan-Schloss has started in all 17 games and has earned a 12-2-3 record. Kernan-Schloss has a league-high nine shutouts, as the team boasts the fourth-best shutout percentage in the nation (0.59). Kernan-Schloss ranks seventh in the nation in goals against average (0.56) and 16th in save percentage (0.836).

The Bears will now travel to Philadelphia to take on the Drexel Dragons at 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15, in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
