Mr. Pleasant, SC -
Senior Dylan Sheehan (Wolfville, NS) scored the Brown men’s soccer team’s (2-2) only goal during the team’s 3-1 loss to the College of Charleston on Sunday afternoon in the final game of the Aaron Olitsky Memorial/Nike Soccer Classic. Seniors Jarrett Leech (Manakin-Sabot, VA) and Rhett Bernstein (San Diego, CA), as well as freshman Rob Medairos (Stafford, VA) were named to the All-Tournament Team.
The College of Charleston jumped out to a quick lead over the Bears, scoring its first goal just 13 minutes into the game. Matt Morris received a pass from Kareem Yearwood and put one past sophomore goalkeeper Paul Grandstrand (Orono, MN). Six minutes later, Morris tallied his second goal, scoring in the 19th minute off a free kick.
Just three minutes before the half, the Cougars made it 3-0 after Jedd Cordisco scored unassisted on a breakaway. The Cougars out shot the Bears 7-2 in the first half, and although Brown turned up the pressure in the second half (out shooting Charleston 7-3), Brown couldn’t come back from its deficit. Sheehan put the Bears on the scoreboard in the 89th minute of play, after he put in a corner kick taken by freshman Taylor Gorman (Freeport, ME).
Brendan Smith received the win in goal for Charleston, picking up four saves, as Brown’s Grandstrand (0-2) earned the loss with five saves. The Tournament MVP was Matt Morris from the College of Charleston, and the Cougars were also awarded the championship for going 2-0.
Brown is back in action at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday at Boston University.
