Denver loses U-20 standout Garza with knee injury
by Paul Kennedy, September 10th, 2009 8:30AM



MEN'S NEWS ...  Denver lost one of the nation's top sophomores when Sam Garza tore his anterior cruciate ligament and miniscus in the Pioneers' game against N.C. State on Friday.

The injury means that Garza, the 2008 MPSF Newcomer of the Year , won't be joining the U.S. under-20 national team in Cyprus Sunday for preparations for the Under-20 World Cup later this month in Egypt. Hertha Berlin midfielder Bryan Arguez has been added to the U.S. U-20 roster.
* Akron will put its No. 1 ranking on the line this week when it travels to Cincinnati to face High Point and the host Bearcats at the inaugural adidas Bearcat Classic on Friday and Sunday. Two easy games? Hardly. Both High Point and Cincinnati are 3-0-0.

HPU has only allowed one goal in three games. "We are excited for the fast start," said Coach Dustin Fonder. "We are really proud of the fact that we had our second shutout in three games. A goal of ours was to tighten up defensively and it looks like we are starting to do that. "

Hylton Dayes' Bearcats scored 12 goals in their three wins -- one less goal than they scored all last season. They've gotten goals from eight different players, led by Branden Stelmak with three goals.

* Clemson continued to struggle as the winless Tigers had to settle for a 1-1 tie at home with Charlotte on Wednesday night.
