MORNING BRIEFING: Agorsor and Tchani show flashes
by Paul Kennedy, September 10th, 2008 8AM

MOST COMMENTED

Which Virginia team are we going to see this season? The team that lost twice at home on the opening weekend of the season. Or the team that rallied from two goals down to win at George Mason, 3-2, and beat a good Hofstra team, 4-2, two days later?

With the opening losses to St. John's and SMU, Virginia began where it left off at the end of the 2007 season when it slumped in the second half of the season --
a 1-5-2 record in the ACC and second-round exit from the NCAA Tournament.

But the same day Coach George Gelnovatch from Virginia Athletics Director Craig Littlepage got a vote of confidence with a new four-year contract, the Cavs rebounded with an overtime win at Mason.

Chris Agorsor, the MVP of the 2008 U.S. Soccer Development Academy for the U-17/18 champion Baltimore Bays, scored at Mason, as did another star of the inaugural Development Academy, Brian Ownby of the Richmond Strikers.

Perhaps the most spectacular freshman has been Tony Tchani, a 6-foot-4 forward who wears bright yellow shoes. Tchani, who was born in Cameroon and came to the United States less than two years ago, scored twice against Hofstra -- first on a free kick and then on a low shot past Hofstra goalie James Winters.

HARTFORD DERBY. No. 22 Central Connecticut State had to settle for a 1-1 tie with local rival Hartford on Tuesday night. The Blue Devils had rallied from a 1-0 deficit to tie the score on sophomore Christopher Brown's goal, but they later lost captain Yan Klukowski to a red card with 28 minutes left in the second half.
