CAMPBELL 2 NORTH CAROLINA 0
Surging Campbell won its ninth straight game when it beat state rival North Carolina, 2-0, before 1,187 fans Tuesday night in Buies Creek. The result would be considered an upset except for the fact that the Camels knocked off No. 7 UNC for the third year in a row.

Senior Richard Jata scored the game-winning goal in his fifth-straight match, and Vince Petrasso added his fifth strike of the season for Campbell. Aaron Johnson, who made two spectacular stops in the second half, registered his fourth consecutive shutout.
 
REACTION: "North Carolina is an excellent team and I have huge respect for the way they play," said Camel coach Doug Hess.  "That being said, I feel like our team was committed to the way we had to play tonight on both sides of the ball.  We made the opportunities we had count, and collectively kept it out of our goal."
 
LOYOLA (ILL.) 0 NORTHWESTERN 1
No. 5 Northwestern responded from its first loss of the season by posting a hard-fought win at Loyola (Ill.). Senior Brian Usinger's second-half goal on a header was the difference. Loyola played the final seven minutes one man down after Tim Puttkammer picked up his second yellow card of the match following a hard foul on Peter O'Neill.

CINCINNATI 1 SOUTH FLORIDA 0
Junior Paul Hoste beat USF goalkeeper Jeff Attinella in the 50th minute for his first collegiate goal to decide the Big East match played in chilling temperatures. The win over the No. 12 Bulls was the first of the year for Cincinnati, which has now won four of its last five games to move within one win of the .500 mark.

REACTION: "The defense has played really well of late," said Cincinnati coach Hylton Dayes, who pulled in to a tie for second all-time with Jim McDowell for career victories at UC with his 72nd.  "They played as a unit and shut out one of the top forwards in the league in Jordan Seabrook."

PITTSBURGH 2 CONNECTICUT 2 (OT)
UConn junior Toni Stahl scored his first goal of the season with 13 seconds left in regulation to tie the score. Pittsburgh led twice on goals by Mike McDade and Ian Farnsworth, but UConn twice came back on goals set up by freshman Tony Cascio. Junior Joe Boa had the first Husky goal.

BRADLEY 1 BUTLER 2
Sophomore Ben Sippola broke a 1-1 tie with the winning goal in the 42nd minute. The host Braves jumped in front in the 21st minute on a goal by Graham Stockdale, but Butler answered 13 minutes later when Boris Gatzky dribbled through the defense and blasted a shot past Bradley goalkeeper Kyle Orne.

DUKE 1 COLGATE 0
Sophomore Nick Sih scored in the 79th minute for the Blue Devils, who have not allowed a goal in the past four games, spanning 386 minutes. Rookie Jan Trnka-Amhrein earned his first career start in the goal to hold off the Raiders, who matches the Blue Devils in shots with 11.

VILLANUEVA BREAKOUT. Just two years, Jonathan Villanueva was considered one of the country's top prospects, but he was quiet this season until Virginia's match Tuesday against American. Villanueva, now a junior, played a part in each of the Cavaliers' four goals, leading them past AU, 4-2. Villanueva scored his first two goals of the season and assisted on two more.
