Red-hot UConn rolls on

Red-hot Connecticut continued its fine start to the 2007 men's season with a 2-0 win over CAA power Hofstra on Wednesday night.

The No. 2 ranked Huskies again got it done at both ends of the field.

Jamaican youth international O'Brian White scored his team-leading sixth goal, and senior Chukwudi Chijindu added his third goal off the bench for the Huskies this season.

Along with White and Chijindu, St, Benedict's product Mike Pezza (6 assists), Jamaica international Akeem Prestley (a sensational goal against FIU last weekend) and senior Ryan Cordeiro (playing the best soccer of his career) give UConn one of the most versatile attacks in the country.

Redshirt freshman Josh Ford, who won the preseason battle for the starting job in goal, tallied a career-high nine saves to earn his fourth straight shutout.

The Huskies open the Big East season Saturday by welcoming Georgetown to Morrone Stadium.

In the only midweek game involving a Top 25 men's team, No. 11 Harvard won, 2-0, at Vermont on Tuesday.

The short-handed Crimson (4-0-0) got goals from U.S. U-20 international Andre Akpan and Michael Fucito, the Ivy League's top two returning scorers from 2006.

Coach John Kerr Jr. was without his freshmen, who were back in Cambridge for orientation and placement activities.
