Bowdoin Erupts For Four Goals in Second Half To Beat Babson

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College men's soccer team exploded for four second-half goals on its way to a 4-1 comeback victory over Babson on Monday afternoon at Pickard Field.

The Polar Bears improve to 5-3-2 this season with the victory while the Beavers fall to 7-5-1 overall.

How It Happened

The teams traded good chances in the opening half, but it was Babson who struck first when Justin Kaplan and Carlo Araujo played give-and-go in the 33rd minute. Kaplan finished off a feed from Araujo inside the far post to give the Beavers a 1-0 lead
Bowdoin's best chance in the first half came moments after the Babson goal, but a shot by Connor Keefe sailed just wide of the net as the visitors carried their one-goal advantage into the break
After a sustained possession, Bowdoin broke through in the 55th minute when Kiefer Solarte played a ball into the box from the right side to Keefe on the left of the penalty area. Keefe lobbed it back across to Hunter Miller, who deposited it into the net to tie the contest
Eight minutes later Bowdoin took the lead when Keefe received a through ball from Austin Downing and left-footed it past diving Babson goaltender Stephen Donato
The Polar Bears continued to roll, scoring again just 4:40 later when Sam Ward lofted the ball into the center of the box where Moctar Niang was able to head it inside the right post to make it 3-1
With Babson pushing upfield to cut into Bowdoin's lead, the Polar Bears were able to convert on a breakaway as Downing carried the ball down the left side and skipped it across to Keefe for his second goal of the day with under five minutes remaining
Bowdoin's four goals in the second period were the most in a half by the Polar Bears since they scored five in the second half against UNE on September 8
The four goals were the most allowed in a game by Babson this season
Stevie Van Siclen made three saves in goal for Bowdoin while Donato stopped one shot for Babson
Up Next

Bowdoin will return to NESCAC play on Saturday when they host Hamilton at 2:00 p.m.
Babson will host Springfield in a NEWMAC contest at 1:00 p.m. Saturday

BRUNSWICK, Maine – The Bowdoin and Colby men's soccer teams played to a 0-0 double overtime tie on Tuesday afternoon at Pickard Field.

Neither team would truly challenge the keepers on either end through the remainder of the first half. Van Siclen and John Pappas each made two more saves in the half, but no challenge ever matched Vogel's in the opening minute.
Colby's most promising look in the second half, again came early in the frame, just 2:37 into play. Brandon Fahlberg took a shot from close to the right post, beating Van Siclen, but Patrick Kearon cleared the ball from behind the goalie to deny Fahlberg
Bowdoin's offense stepped up the pressure in the second half, with several promising sequences. Levi Morant headed a shot to redirect a feed, but Pappas was in position to absorb the shot 15 minutes into the frame.
Moctar Niang looked to put Bowdoin on the board two minutes later connecting with a header off a corner kick from Ben Citrin. Niang's ball collided with the crossbar and deflected back into the field of play.
Pappas extended the game into a second overtime period by denying a short side shot attempt from Cedric Charlier as time expired in the first extra frame.
Each goalie ended the game with four saves in 110 minutes of scoreless play. Bowdoin outshot the Mules by a 17-6 margin and held a 10-3 edge in corner kicks.

Men's Soccer Repeats As NESCAC Champions

MIDDLEBURY, Vt. – Bowdoin's Andrew Jones scored with 2:36 elapsed in overtime to lift Bowdoin to its second-straight NESCAC Men's Soccer Championship via a 1-0 victory over Wesleyan on Sunday at Middlebury.

The sixth-seeded Polar Bears (10-3-4) earn their second overall title and claim the league's automatic bid into the NCAA Division III Tournament, while the eighth-seeded Cardinals, the first eight seed to play in the league's championship, finish their season at 8-8-2.

How It Happened

The first half saw few scoring opportunities with much of the play happening in the midfield. Wesleyan looked to get on the scoreboard in the 26th minute when Brandon Sousa dribbled from right to left, lacing a shot from 18 yards out that was caught in his chest by Bowdoin goalkeeper Stevie Van Siclen.
A little less than two minutes later, Jones worked his way onto the right side for the Polar Bears, chipping a shot from nine yards out that Wesleyan keeper Jack Katkavich dove to his left and smothered. The match went into the halftime break scoreless with just nine combined shots between the teams and four on goal.
The Polar Bears tallied all six shots in the second stanza, but none of them were on net. Bowdoin's best opportunity happened in the 85th minute when Moctar Niang found a soft spot in the Cardinal defense, but his shot from 22 yards out sailed well high of the goal.
In the overtime period, both teams played the possession game during the opening minutes. Following a Wesleyan foul, Van Siclen took the ensuing free kick from 75 yards away, blasting the ball toward the Cardinal goal. The ball took one skidding bounce before Jones gathered it with his feet and tapped in on the far post for the game-winning tally at 92:36.
Bowdoin finished with a 12-4 advantage in shots, while Wesleyan possessed a narrow 2-1 edge in corner kicks. Van Siclen was credited with a save for the Polar Bears, while Katkavich turned away three attempts.
Up Next

The Polar Bears earned the NESCAC's automatic qualifier to the NCAA playoffs and will wait for the tournament bracket to be released tomorrow.
