MORNING BRIEFING: UConn gets scare
by Paul Kennedy, September 4th, 2008 8AM

MOST READ


No. 2 Connecticut's high-powered attack went silent on Wednesday night. It needed an own goal in the 75th minute to beat Stony Brook, 1-0, in Storrs.

The Huskies scored when a ball was deflected past Seawolves goaltender, Dawid Ditrich, by teammate Aaron Woodruff.

UConn, whose attack features 2007 Soccer America Player of the Year O'Brian White and Jamaica international Akeem Priestley, outshot Stony Brook, 19-7.

The goal was enough as the Huskies and Seawolves battled throughout the game, using a great defensive effort on both sides of the field.

TIGERS PREVAIL. Towson handed Rutgers its first loss of the season when it won, 2-1, at the Scarlet Knights' Yurcak Field on Wednesday evening. Sophomore defender Scott Horta scored a goal and added an assist to lead the Tigers.

MOVING ON UP ...
Last weekend saw the D1 debuts for these former D2 men's programs:
*Seattle (coached by Brad Agoos) beat Cleveland State 3-0, North Florida, 1-0.
*SIU-Edwardsville (former D1 and D2 champion) split, beating Missouri State, 1-0 and losing to Drake, 2-0.
*Bryant (coming off first 10-win season since 2001) lost at Marquette, 4-1.
