The soccer doubleheader at Harvard - originally scheduled for Saturday - has been postponed due to inclement weather. With the forecast calling for a 100% chance of rain, the matchups have been pushed back a day. The women will play at 11 a.m. on Sunday morning, with the men's game kicking off at 2 p.m.
The men's team, which will be looking to avenge last season's 1-0 loss to the Crimson, has gone undefeated in its last five games. The Bears enter Sunday's tilt with a 7-3-1 overall record, including a 2-0 mark in Ivy League play. The Bears have gone 6-1-1 in their last eight games and have not allowed more than one goal in a game since their season-opener back on Sept. 2. Junior Ben Brackett leads the team with four goals and one assist for nine points while as a team, Brown is leading the Ivy League in both goals scored and goals allowed.
The women's squad enters Sunday's match with a 5-7-0 overall and 1-2 Ivy record. Senior Kim LaVere is the reigning Ivy League Player of the Week after leading Brown to its first Ivy victory of the season last weekend over Princeton. All seven of the Bears losses have come by just one goal. Freshman striker Lindsay Cunningham leads the team with four goals this season.
