Bears pull off comeback for the ages

[BROWN-FAIRFIELD] The wildest game on the opening day of the NCAA Men's Tournament took place on a rainy and cold night at Stevenson Field, where host Brown came back from two goals down in the last 10 minutes to shock Fairfield, 3-2, with three goals in six minutes.

The Stags, unbeaten in 13 straight games, had the game seemingly in hand on goals by Jake Zuniga and Daniel Shaw, but the Bears then produced one of the most stunning comebacks in their long history.

Canadian Sean Rosa cut the deficit to one goal with a shot from 22-yards out in the 80th minute, then set up the equalizer when his shot rebounded to Austin Mandel, who buried the chance.

Sophomore Aidan Leonard, who made his debut just two weeks ago, won the game when he scored off a corner kick in the 85th minute.
