Alers, McKiernan, Jacobson Named Ivy League Players To Watch By TopDrawerSoccer

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Three Bulldogs have been named Ivy League Players To Watch by TopDrawerSoccer. Juniors Nick Alers, Max McKiernan and Peter Jacobson were each recognized.

Alers was an NSCAA All-Northeast Region third team selection last fall. He also earned first team All-Ivy recognition after helping to anchor a Yale defense that yielded only 16 goals and posted four shutouts.

McKiernan was an honorable mention All-Ivy selection last fall. He was one of only four players to start all 17 games.

Jacobson also earned honorable mention recognition. He tied for fourth in the Ivy League with seven goals and tied for sixth with 15 points.

The Bulldogs, who beat Glastonbury Celtic 4-0 in an exhibition game on Thursday night, begin the regular season next Friday at Central Connecticut.
