Men’s soccer beat host team Lasell 2-0 Tuesday, making this their best season since 2006 with a record of 9-4-1, while Lasell’s record fell to 8-6-2.

In the first half, the Judges outshot the Lasell Lasers 10-3, with the help of goalie Taylor Bracken ’11, who saved two goals. Lasell’s goalie Matt Bruninghaus also saved two goals, keeping it an even game in the first 45 minutes of play.

In the first half, the Judges had five kicks, while Lasell had only one.

In the second half, the Lasers started off quickly with three shots in the first 3:13 minutes of play. Thankfully for the judges, Bracken had two more stops. Then midfielder Lee Russo ’13 took two shots and a corner kick, finally breaking through in the 53rd minute when he connected with classmate Joe Eisenbies ’13 on a free kick.

Eisenbies ranks third on the squad, and his rank was apparent as he scored his sixth of the season. Russo’s assist was his third of the season and he has the second-most assists on the team.

The Judges again outshot the Lasers in the second half, this time 15-6, while earning seven corner kicks. Lasell had no corner kicks in the second half.

A goal by Alexander Farr ’12 gave Brandeis a safe lead at 2-0 in the 88th minute of play. It was Farr’s seventh goal of the season. Farr was assisted by Kyle Feather ’14 with the first helper of his college career.

Bracken finished off the game with five saves for the Judges, earning his fourth shutout of the season and the team’s seventh.

The Judges return to the field Friday against Washington University in St. Louis for an 8:30 p.m. kick-off.
