Red-hot Sheehan leads Brown to fifth straight win

[PROFILE] Canadian Dylan Sheehan got a rude awakening to the world of college soccer as a freshman when he suffered a fractured hip bone in a freak accident while taking a fitness test.

The injury limited Sheehan, a native of Nova Scotia, to one appearance in 2005, and he started only one game in 2006, but he is off to a phenomenal start in 2007.

Sheehan's first-half goal gave the ninth-ranked Bears a 1-0 victory over St. Francis (N.Y.) on Tuesday, marking the fifth straight game -- all victories -- in which he has scored.

Like he did in the season-opening 2-1 win over Santa Clara and in the 1-0 win over Rhode Island on Sunday, the 6-foot-1 Sheehan scored on a header against St. Francis, meeting Darren Howerton's corner kick into the middle of the penalty area.

Sheehan, who was recruited to Brown by current Nova Scotian teammate Matt Britner, fractured his hip bone in the first week of preseason training in 2005 when he was obstructed while taking a fitness test and ran into a hurdle at full speed. Despite the injury, he completed the test -- and passed.
