MORNING BRIEFING: UIC beats Santa Clara, BC loses
by Paul Kennedy, September 2nd, 2008 8AM



Santa Clara, projected to be the top men's team on the West Coast, left Chicago Monday with its second straight loss of the 2008 season.

After its 2-1 loss to Loyola (Ill.) on Saturday, the Broncos fell to UIC, 4-3, in front of a packed house at Flames Field on Monday night.

The Flames, who were coming off a 2-2 tie with UMKC in their opening game, got goals from Matt Spiess, Baggio Husidic and Charlie Trout to take a 3-1 lead after 35 minutes. Kevin Stoll's goal in the 73rd minute proved to be the deciding tally.

Jeff Cosgriff, Ross Smith and Brian Martin scored for Santa Clara.

"Maybe Friday night was a tough night at the office, and maybe tonight it would have been easier to give in somewhat with the injuries we have and the way [Santa Clara] played and the fight that they have," said UIC coach John Trask. "But that's why we go a long way in the NCAA Tournament, because we have so much heart and desire and different guys step up in different situations. It's the mark of a great program, a program like Santa Clara, and it's what we are trying to be."

DEJA VU. Sophomore Nick Cianci scored in the 16th minute to lead the Providence to a 1-0 victory over fourth-ranked Boston College. It marked the second consecutive season in which the Friars defeated the Eagles.
