Flames not yet extinguished

MEN'S NEWS ... After a slow start, UIC is coming on. The Flames won back-to-back 1-0 games against ranked Ohio State and Horizon League rival Wisconsin-Milwaukee to improve to 5-4-4. Both goals came off corner kicks by Mike Giffin. "We're battling things this year," said UIC coach John Trask. "That's who we are right now."

The win over Ohio State was remarkable given the long list of absentees. Starters Robert Younger, Ian Sarachan, Matt Spiess and Ivan Stanisavljevic were out with injuries and Charlie Trout was suspended for the game. On top of that, center back Zach Tierney was injured in the first half and had to leave the game. Ohio State's Joshua Breto was red carded for his foul on Tierney, a transfer from New Mexico.

The Flames are one of four teams in the top 12 in Soccer America's preseason rankings who are not in this week's Top 25. The others are St. John's, Creighton and Notre Dame.

* MEN'S TOP 25 SCHEDULE:
Tuesday, Oct. 20
Michigan vs. No. 1 Akron
South Carolina vs. No. 3 Wake Forest
No. 5 Maryland vs. Seton Hall
Yale vs. No. 6 Connecticut
Providence vs. No. 9 Harvard
No. 12 Northwestern vs. Loyola (Ill.)
No. 15 Virginia vs. Howard
St. John's vs. No. 22 Brown
No. 24 Duke vs. Navy

* SPARTANS END SKID. UNC Greensboro's 3-1 over Gardner-Webb on Saturday ended the Spartans' three-game losing streak and marked the return of long-time coach Michael Parker, who had been suspended from coaching at UNCG's previous game, a 3-0 loss to Duke. Assistant coach Justin Maullin ran the team in Parker's absence. Witnesses say that Parker launched a verbal assault at players and a coach at UNCG's Southern Conference game against College of Charleston.

* LEADING SCORERS:
1. Andrew Bulls, UMBC 15
2. Matthew Skonicki, Winthrop 11
3. Issa Tall, Adelphi 11
