PHILADELPHIA - One last chance at redemption awaits the 2012 Penn men's soccer team on Saturday as the Quakers host Harvard on Saturday at Rhodes Field on Senior Night at 7 p.m.
The Quakers have not picked up a win in seven matches, and are winless at home this season. A victory over the Crimson on Saturday can end both of those streaks and overtake Harvard in the Ivy standings.
Before the match, the two seniors will be honored as part of Senior Night ceremonies. Travis Cantrell and Bryan Yasukochi have provided perfect examples of leadership and what it takes to develop as a collegiate soccer player to a young Penn squad this season and their impact will be felt long after graduation.
Travis Cantrell as served as a team captain this season, appearing in 13 matches with the start in each. He shares the team lead with six goals, a new career high which matches his output from his previous three seasons combined. Over the course of his career, Cantrell has appeared in68 matches, making the start 57 times. He has scored 12 total goals and assisted on eight for 32 career points. Three of his strikes have been game-winners. He will graduate in May from the College of Arts and Sciences with a degree in environmental science.
Bryan Yasukochi has been a fixture in the lineup the last two seasons, with 22 appearances - including 14 starts in 2012. In 2011, he scored his first career goal in Penn's win over Saint Joseph's. Back in 2009, he recorded his first career assist in his first career appearance. He will graduate in May from Wharton with a degree in finance.
The Crimson enters its final game of 2012 with a 3-10-3 record, and an 0-5-1 mark inside the Ivy League. After a 0-0 tie with Yale in the opening weekend of Ivy play, Harvard has gone five matches without a win. Zack Wolfenzon leads the Crimson with seven points on three goals and an assist. Oliver White and Jake Freeman also have three goals for Harvard.
