Men's soccer falls to 17th ranked Emory 4-0

Atlanta, Georgia -- Emory University Senior Andrew Zalk (Short Hills, NJ) scored two goals as the 17th-ranked Eagles defeated the Brandeis Judges 4-0 in a University Athletic Association (UAA) match-up.

Emory (14-2, 4-1 UAA) took an early lead, scoring two goals in the first twenty minutes of play. Patrick Carver (Springfield, MO) started things off in the 16th minute with a shot nearly saved by Brandeis goalkeeper Taylor Bracken (No. Andover, MA). The Eagles would not hold back as the second goal came shortly after, scored by Patrick McFarland (Franklin, TN) who headed a ball past the diving Bracken.

Brandeis (8-8-2, 0-5 UAA) managed just 4 shots total against a stingy Eagles defense. Bracken was put to work as he made 9 saves in the losing effort. Emory tallied two more goals in the last five minutes from Zalk who sealed the win.

The Judges' next match up will be Sunday November 28th at Pittsburgh,PA to take on Carnegie Mellon University.
