Rough start for depleted Michigan

[AROUND THE COUNTRY] Men's College Cup semifinalist Michigan's rebuilding campaign off to a rough start. Second-half goals from freshman Danny Baraldi and sophomore Ryan Snashall gave Bowling Green a 2-0 win over the visiting Wolverines.

Soccer America Freshman of the Year Soony Saad turned pro, signing with Sporting Kansas City, his brother, Hamoody, left the team, and goalie Chris Blais transferred to USF. On top of that the Wolverines also lost senior Justin Meram, who is now starting for the Columbus Crew. And top recruit Caleb Stanko accepted an offer from German club Freiburg, where he is playing with its Jugend A team.

-- Bradley's 6-foot-5 senior, Bryan Gaul, scored on shots from 32 and 20 yards and assisted on Christian Meza's opening goal for a remarkable first half that helped propel the Braves past Butler, 4-1, in their battle of Missouri Valley and Horizon League champions at the Butler Bowl.

-- Freshman Juan Monge Solano scored on a free kick from 35 yards after only eight minutes and VCU cruised to a 4-1 win over Navy. Former Akron player Yoram Mwila added two late goals to break the game open.

-- Stephan Brossard needed only seven minutes to score a hat trick midway through the first half and lead Marist to a 6-4 win at Army in Friday's opener. The Black Knights had come back from 4-1 down to tie the score at 4-4, but Krystian Witkowski scored two late goals to give Marist the win.
