Box Score

PRINCETON, N.J. (10/6/12) - Sophomore Cameron Porter scored the game-tying goal in the 73rd minute as the Princeton men's soccer team played to a 1-1 draw with No. 19 Brown before an electric crowd at Roberts Stadium.

Both defenses did great jobs as the first shot on goal of the game didn't come until the 33rd minute. That shot would be an easy grab by Princeton goalkeeper Seth MacMillan as the shot by Tariq Akeel was lofted from nearly 45 yards out.

Princeton's best chance of the first half came just a minute later. Porter had a shot blocked and senior Matt Sanner got the ball and hit goalkeeper Sam Kernan-Schloss. Junior Myles McGinley got the rebound but his shot was high.

Brown would get on the board in the 38th minute when Tim Whalen one-timed a punched ball by MacMillan off a corner kick.

The Tigers came out renewed in the second half and outshot the Bears 9-3 in the second session.

Princeton started to come on strong around the 60th minute. Joe Saitta found Porter who fired a shot towards the goal and Matt Sanner used his body to redirect the shot but it went just wide. At that point Princeton had evened Brown in shots 11-11 and had a 4-1 edge in the second, proving to the crowd it was just a matter of time.

It came minutes later in the 73rd when senior Mark Linnville delivered a long throw in into the box. Matt Sanner headed the throw and Porter put it away to the right of Kernan-Schloss. The Tigers had another great offensive effort in the 88th minute when Matt Sanner's headed was followed up by Porter's shot that was stopped on the ground by the goalkeeper.

On the other end of the field MacMillan made a spectacular save on a shot by Ben Maurey. MacMillan cut off the corner at the near post on a point blank shot to keep the game knotted at 1-1.

Brown would get four straight corner kicks in the final two minutes of the game but the Tigers wouldn't let anything come of them as the game went into overtime.

Both teams entered the weekend undefeated in overtime, as Princeton was 1-0 and Brown 2-0-1.

Shots in the two 10-minute overtimes was in Princeton's favor 3-2 while Brown had the only shot on goal.  Once again it was Maurey tested MacMillan but MacMillan was up for the challenge preserving the tie in the 103rd minute.

Linnville had two long throw-ins from inside the 18, but the Tigers couldn't repeat the results from earlier in the game as the chances were shots either wide or high.

Princeton finished with a 19-15 edge in shots, while Brown won the corner kick battle 10-5.

MacMillan made three saves for the Tigers, while Kernan-Schloss stopped five.

Princeton moves to 5-3-1 overall and Brown to 8-1-2. Both teams are now 1-0-1 in the Ivy League and are in a two-way tie for second. Cornell picked up a victory tonight over Harvard to take sole possession of first place in the standings, with five games left to play.

The Tigers host No. 24 Creighton live on ESPNU on Tuesday, Oct. 9 at 7 p.m.
