ETSU, the first Division I school to add men's soccer since 2000, won its first game on Sunday when it defeated Wofford, 2-0.

Freshmen Sean Hoek (25-yard shot) and Aliyu Sugri (breakaway) scored for the Bucs.

"Every single player made a contribution in the game," said ETSU coach Scott Calabrese, the former Clemson assistant, "and we needed it with the hot conditions. For the team, getting the first win is key, and this will give us a great deal of confidence."

ETSU, which features a young squad with 21 freshmen on the roster, are only the fourth Division I men's program in Tennessee. Memphis, Lipscomb and Belmont are the others. The only Division I school to add men's soccer as a varsity program in the last decade was Michigan in 2000.

NEW ENGLAND CLASH. Never has the competition been so intense in New England, where three teams began the week in the Soccer America Men's Top 25.

No. 25 Central Connecticut State was the first of those teams to open the 2008 season, defeating Holy Cross, 1-0, on Tuesday thanks to sophomore Robert Cavener's goal in the 79th minute. The Crusaders were coming off a win over UMass, last year's Men's College Cup semifinalist.
