Brown and Dartmouth Named 2011 Ivy League Men's Soccer Co-Champions

PRINCETON, N.J. -- On an eventful final regular-season Saturday of Ivy League men's soccer play, Brown and Dartmouth played to a 0-0 tie in a game that began at 4 p.m. Three hours later, Cornell played host to Columbia in a game that also ended in a tie, 1-1.

With all four of the teams entering the final day with designs of winning the 2011 title, Brown and Dartmouth ended the day as 2011 Ivy League Co-Champions with 14 points apiece in the League standings (4-1-2), with Dartmouth earning the League's automatic NCAA Championship bid. The Big Green earned the bid because Dartmouth beat third-place Columbia (2-0 at home on Oct. 22) and Brown lost at third-place Columbia (2-1 in 2 OT on Oct. 1).

Brown earned a share of the program's 20th Ivy title, the highest total in the League. The Bears last won the Ivy League crown in 2007. For Dartmouth it marks the program's ninth title overall and first since sharing the title with Penn in 2008.

The Big Green and the rest of the Ivies will now wait for the 2011 NCAA Selection show, which airs Monday, Nov. 14 at 4:30 p.m. on NCAA.com.
