adidas-Brown Classic, Providence, RI
No. 19 Stanford fell to host Brown, 2-1, in a first round game at the sixth annual Adidas-Brown Classic. Stanford led 1-0 on a goal early in the second half by James Twellman before Brown answered with a pair of second half goals in front of a sellout crowd at Stevenson Field. The Cardinal fell to 1-2 on the season, while Brown won its season-opener.
Stanford got on the board first early in the second half when Twellman knocked in a corner kick taken by Galen Thompson. The Bears quickly responded less than nine minutes later to tie the game 1-1 when Brown senior captain Adom Crew dribbled into the box and junior Marcos Romaneiro chipped in the loose ball for the Bears first goal of the season.
Brown recorded the game-winning goal at the 69:16 mark when freshman Matt Britner headed in a corner kick taken by Romaneiro. The goal was Britner's first collegiate score and Romaneiro's third point of the night.
Brown held a slim 13-12 advantage in shots over the Cardinal, while Stanford led 9-5 in penalty kicks.
