[HARVARD-STANFORD] Harvard, the defending Ivy League champion, celebrated the opening of the Soldiers Field Soccer Stadium with a 2-1 win over No. 13 Stanford
in front of a capacity crowd of 3,221 on Saturday.
Brian Rogers, last year's Ivy League Rookie of the Year, scored the winning goal for the Crimson in the debut of new head coach Carl Junot.
Harvard had gone ahead on an own goal and Stanford tied it up on a free kick by Bobby Warshaw before Rogers won the game with just under 11 minutes remaining in the contest.
Jaren LaGreca stole the ball deep in the Harvard zone and made an outlet pass to midfield, finding Rogers, who eluded two defenders before beating Stanford goalkeeper Jason Dodson.
The loss was the second in a row for the Cardinal, which had fallen to Vermont on the first game of its New England tour.
Harvard will head to the road to visit Massachusetts on Monday. The game will be shown live in Western Massachusetts on CBS 3 Springfield at 3 p.m. ET.
