PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
For the third time in five games, the Providence College men's soccer team turned a 1-0 deficit into a victory as the Friars came back to post a 3-1 win over Harvard (0-3-0) on Thursday afternoon at Glay Field. Senior Anthony Baumann (Spring Hill, Fla.) and sophomore Manny Andrade (Boston, Mass.) each finished the game with a goal and an assist as the Friars pushed their undefeated streak to five games (4-0-1) to start the year.
Late in the first half Harvard took a 1-0 lead when Stephen Yen played a cross-field pass over the top to Hiroki Kobayashi, who brought the ball down and beat the Providence goalkeeper to the far side of the net for his first goal of the year at 42:25.
But the Friars answered back with time winding down in the half after earning a corner kick following a free kick into the box. Baumann whipped the corner kick to the far side of the box that Andrade hit back across the face of the goal. Freshman Julian Gressel (Neustadt an der Aisch, Germany) drove the feed low past Harvard goalkeeper Brett Conrad for his team-leading third goal of the season at 44:55.
With the score still tied at 1-1 in the second half, Gressel burst through the box and was taken down in to earn a penalty kick that Baumann converted for his first goal of the season at 74:29, which proved to be the game winner.
The Friars extended their lead to 3-1 when freshman Nick Sailor (Bloomfield, Conn.) weaved through the center of the field and fired a shot in on net that Conrad made a diving stop on. The rebound bounced out to Andrade, who drove home the rebound for his first goal of the year at 80:15. It was Andrade's first career goal and Sailor's first career point.
Providence outshot Harvard by a 17-5 margin, including a 10-2 advantage in shots on goal. Red-shirt junior goalkeeper Keasel Broome (Claymont, Del.) made one save in the Friar net, while Conrad finished with seven saves for the Crimson.
Providence has posted a five-game unbeaten streak to start a season for the first time since 2008, when it went 3-0-3 to open the year.
The Friars close out a three-game homestand at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14 when they welcome Northeastern to Glay Field.
