Men’s Soccer Falls in NCAAs

The Tufts men’s soccer team fell to the Brandeis University Judges in the NCAA Division III Elite Eight, 1-0, at Bello Field in a double overtime game on November 19.

In the 109th minute with penalty kicks looming, the Judges (17-4-0) played a long ball to the top of the box. Jumbo goalie Conner Mieth came out to make a play on it, but in the challenge for the ball it bounced out to Brandeis senior Patrick Flahive. With the goal open, Flahive got a shot off from 30 yards out, which found its way into the back of the net.
