MOST COMMENTED

In his 32 years at Brown, Phil Pincince has enjoyed considerable success -- 12 Ivy League titles, including nine in a row (1982-90) -- but he has never had a weekend quite like the Bears had at the UConn Classic. First, Brown beat Big Ten powerhouse Penn State, 1-0, in overtime, then it tied No. 1 UCLA, 0-0.

Brenna Hogue was the star, stopping a career-high 18 shots, including two in overtime, against Penn State, then making 12 saves against  UCLA.
 
Canadian freshman Sarah Hebert-Seropian's goal with 58 seconds left in the first overtime lifted Brown  over Penn State.

"This is by far the biggest weekend of my coaching career," said Pincince. "To play two teams ranked in the top 15 and come away with a win and a tie is unbelievable. The players left everything on the field this weekend and were rewarded. This was truly a special weekend."

WEEKEND TOP 25 ACTION
Sept. 12
Stanford 1 (O'Hara 87) North Carolina 1 (Heath 30).
Florida 2 (Chapman 49, Annis 55) Illinois 0.
Sept. 14
North Carolina 5 (Washington 1, 64, Averbuch 7, Jones 49, Nogueira 71) Santa Clara 0.
Wake Forest 3 (D'Agostino 38, Sadow 62, Winslow 64) Cal State Fullerton 0.

THE 60-60 CLUB. Kerri Hanks' assist on the first of two goals by freshman Melissa Henderson in Notre Dame's 5-0 win over SMU was the 60th of her career, making her just the sixth player in NCAA Division I women's soccer history to register 60 goals and 60 assists (she also has 69 goals). Three of those six are Notre Dame players.
