MEN'S SOCCER DRAWS EVEN AGAINST CORNELL, 1-1, IN DOUBLE OT

BURLINGTON, Vt. – Senior back Joe Corsello (York, Maine) netted a late second half goal, as the University of New Hampshire men's soccer team battled back to earn a 1-1 draw against Cornell University in double-overtime Friday afternoon at Centennial Field.

The Wildcats remain undefeated on the season as they move to 1-0-2 with the tie, as for the Big Red, they adjust to 1-1-1.

Corsello's tally, which is his first of the season, came in the 73rd minute on a one-timer set up by Josh Bronner (Belchertown, Mass.) and Brad Hilton (Merrimack, N.H.) that found its way into the low corner of the net past Cornell goalkeeper Rick Pflasterer.

The Big Red drew first blood in the contest as Chase Aaronson notched an unassisted goal at 35:21 of the first half, beating a UNH defender in the slot and striking the ball into the net from the near post.

Cornell held a 12 to 11 advantage in shots, but the Wildcats outshot the Big Red seven to four in the second stanza. Jordan Thomas (Mohnton, Pa.) led the 'Cats with four shots, while Steven Palumbo (Kingston, N.H.), Jeffrey Turner (Blandon, Pa.) and Corsello tallied two apiece.
The Big Red totaled eight corner kicks on the afternoon, while the Wildcats finished with three.
