Brown and Dartmouth Advance in NCAA Men's Soccer Championship With Dramatic Wins

PRINCETON, N.J. –- In dramatic fashion, the Brown Bears and Dartmouth Big Green each booked places in the final-16 of the 2010 NCAA Men’s Soccer Championship on Sunday. Playing an afternoon game in Storrs, Conn., the Bears needed 110 minutes of play and eight rounds of penalty kicks to get past 11th-seeded UConn, 1-1 (7-6 in penalty kicks). Then in an evening contest in Notre Dame, Ind., the Big Green advanced past the ninth-seeded Fighting Irish in overtime, 2-1. Elsewhere, as the Ivy League boasted three teams in the second round of the NCAA Championship for the first time since 1973, Penn fell at second-seeded Maryland, 4-0.

With an Andrew Olsen golden goal, Dartmouth advances to the third round for the second time in the last three seasons. Brown, which advances on the strength of a Jay Hayward clinching penalty kick, moved to third round play for the first time since 2000.

All eight third round games of the 2010 NCAA Championship will be played on Sunday, Nov. 28. Brown travels to sixth-seeded California, while Dartmouth will play at eighth seeded UCLA. Game times will be announced later in the week.
