CONFERENCE WATCH: WCC teams slump
September 19th, 2008 8AM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

The West Coast Conference includes two former national champions -- San Francisco (1966, 1975, 1976, 1980) and Santa Clara (co-champion in 1989) -- and two other teams that have played in the final four -- San Diego and Portland -- but this season has been a non-starter for WCC teams. Entering the weekend, no WCC team has a winning record. For a look at the WCC seven ...

PORTLAND (2-2-1). The Pilots have been either good -- 4-0 win over Fairleigh Dickinson, 3-1 win over Washington and 2--2 tie with Virginia Tech -- or horrible -- 3-0 loss to  Creighton and 5-1 loss to Saint Louis. Frankie Lopez leads the WCC with five goals.

LOYOLA MARYMOUNT (1-1-2). The Lions' .500 record isn't bad, considering its first four opponents: New Mexico (1-1 tie), Saint Louis (2-2 tie), Cal Poly (1-0 win) and UC Santa Barbara (3-1 loss). LMU Coach Paul Krumpe, the former U.S. international, has gotten some quality play out of son Tyler, a freshman.

GONZAGA (1-2-1). The Bulldogs got their first win of the season when they beat UNLV, 2-1, thanks to two goals by Zach Smith off the bench, last week at the UNLV Nike Invitational. They made the 2007 NCAA Tournament but went their final 548 minutes without scoring a goal!

SANTA CLARA (1-3-1). The Broncos, the 2007 WCC champions, were ranked No. 5 in the Soccer America Preseason Top 25 but they dropped after opening with losses to Loyola (Ill.), UIC and Wisconsin. A 1-1 tie with Cal last week is more reflective of SCU's  talents.

ST. MARY'S (1-4-0). The Gaels' only win was 4-2 at Navy. Since then, they've dropped one-goal decisions to D1 returnee Houston Baptist, UC Irvine and Sacramento State. Still, St. Mary;s has outshot the opposition, 67-40.

SAN DIEGO (0-3-2). The Toreros dropped a 2-1 decision to ranked Indiana in their lone match last week. JT Howlan, who scored against IU, now has two of the four USD goals.

SAN FRANCISCO (0-4-0).  The Dons have been consistent: all four games have ended in 1-0 losses. Their tough luck continued last week as they dropped a double-overtime decision to San Jose State before falling to Stanford.
