FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Three second-half goals by Yale did in the Sacred Heart men's soccer team on Tuesday afternoon, as the Bulldogs defeated the Pioneers 4-1 at Campus Field.
Yale (1-1) controlled play early in the first half, taking a 1-0 lead in the 21st minute. Henry Albrecht hit a free kick from 30 yards out that found the head of Peter Jacobson, who headed the ball past Pioneers goalkeeper Dylan Strachan (Fairfield, Conn.) inside the 18-yard box. Despite being outshot 8-3 in the first half, Sacred Heart (2-4) tied the game five minutes before halftime. Freshman midfielder Kieran Walsh (River Vale, N.J.) cracked a free kick from 25 yards out into the upper half of the goal, making the score 1-1.
The Bulldogs turned the game into their favor in the 66th minute. Jacobson drew a penalty kick after being fouled in the penalty area. He stepped up to the spot and beat Strachan to give Yale a 2-1 lead. Less than a minute later, Yale found itself in the attacking third again. This time, Jacobson played a cross to Cameron Kirdzik who hit a one-touch into the goal to put Yale ahead 3-1.
Sacred Heart returns to action on Wednesday, Sept. 18 for a 7 p.m. game at Holy Cross.
