Brad Rose Scores For Bulldogs

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Brad Rose's goal in the 66th minute helped the Yale men's soccer team earn a 1-1 tie with Adelphi in the opening game of the adidas Brown Classic at Stevenson Field. The game was ruled a tie after 75 minutes, 12 seconds of play and a 90-minute lightning delay. NCAA rules state that a game is official after 70 minutes of play and cannot be resumed once the delay reaches 90 minutes.

The stoppage was unfortunate for the Bulldogs, who seemed to have the momentum on their side after Rose's tying goal. Yale (0-0-2) had four straight shots on goal before the game was stopped.

"We were really playing well when the game was called, but it is one of those things you can't do much about," said Yale head coach Brian Tompkins.

Adelphi (1-0-2) broke a 0-0 tie in the first minute of the second half when Alex Kouznetsov scored on a penalty kick.

Charlie Neil set up the tying goal when he sent a nice cross to Rose, who fired a shot over the goalkeeper's head from the center of the box.

Yale outshot the Panthers 8-5 and had a 4-1 edge in corner kicks.

Travis Chulick made two saves in goal for the Bulldogs, while Kyle Blackmer stopped five shots for Adelphi.

"I was really pleased with the way we played," Tompkins said. "We tightened up defensively and moved the ball well."

The Bulldogs returns to Providence to take on SMU on Sunday at noon.
