Soccer Summary

November-December 2008

Men’s Soccer

The Crimson (4-3, 1-0 Ivy) lost three games on the road in early season play, but was undefeated on its home turf. Senior Michael Fucito (see “Back on the Field,” September-October 2008, page 65) leads the team in goals, followed closely by Andre Akpan ’10. But it was Kwaku Nyameke ’10 who secured the team’s first Ivy win, 1-0 against Yale, when he blasted a loose ball off a free kick into the Yale net.

Women’s Soccer

The women booters (4-3-3, 1-1-0 Ivy) have been paced this season by freshman phenomenon Melanie Baskind, who leads the team in points. Against Yale, which the Crimson defeated 3-1, Baskind scored the game-winning goal and added two assists.
