Howard, one of the great names in college soccer in the 1980s and 1990s, is a program in big trouble.

The Bison is 0-6-1 after falling, 5-0, to Mount St. Mary's Wednesday in its Bison home opener at Greene Stadium.

"I thought the game was a mirror image of the whole season -- too many mistakes," said Coach Michael Lawrence.

Lawrence was promoted to head coach in July following the arrest of Joseph Okoh earlier in the year in a youth sex sting.

Okoh had taken over for long-time coach Keith Tucker in 2007.

The Mount St. Mary's loss wasn't the worst of the season. The Bison fell to Seattle, 9-1, and George Washington, 8-0. Its only tie was 1-1 at Mercer.

Howard won nationals titles in 1971 (later taken away by the NCAA) and 1974 and produced such college greats as Alvin Hendersonand Keith Aqui in the early 1970s, former U.S. international Philip Gyau (father of U-17 resident sensation Joseph-Claude Gyau) and former EPL goalie Shaka Hislop (star of the last great Howard team that reached the 1988 final four).

Howard made its last appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 1997. Before that were semifinal and quarterfinal runs with Hislop in goal in 1988 and 1989, respectively.

ACES FALL.Evansville's perfect record ended when the Aces fell at UC Santa Barbara, 4-2. Chris Pontius opened and closed UCSB's scoring.

Bryan Dominguez, the highly touted freshman who entered the match scoreless through his first 19 shots, finally broke his drought with the Gauchos' second goal.

The game was a nice tune-up for the Gauchos, who host No. 1 Wake Forest on Sunday at 6 p.m. in the inaugural Santa Barbara Challenge Cup, a match that pits the past two NCAA champions against each other.
