[AROUND THE COUNTRY] Antonio Aguilar showed why he is one of the most dangerous players in the Big East, scoring twice from 35 yards and assisting on the third goal as DePaul opened its season with a 3-1 win over Oakland.

"His performance today was as good as we've ever seen at Wish Field," said DePaul coach Craig Blazer.

Aguilar got the 2011 season off to a rousing start when he blasted a shot from 35 yards out over the head of Oakland goalkeeper Mitch Hildebrandt in the 25th minute.

"I was moving to my left and I just shot it," Aguilar said. "I was waiting, like, is it going to go in? Then, it went in and I just ran to the sideline with my teammates."

Aguilar set up freshman Thiago Ganancio for the go-ahead goal in the 64th minute and then  drilled another long shot from 35 yards away that landed in the upper left of the Oakland net for the Blue Demon's third goal.

-- It's a long way from Tuscon, Ariz., to University Park, Pa., but Minh Vu, a transfer from Pima Community College, scored the game winner as Penn State opened its 2011 season with a 1-0 win over Siena at the Penn State Classic.

-- CSU Bakersfield's Gyasi Zardes recorded the first hat trick by a Roadrunner  since 2001 as CSUB topped UC Riverside, 5-1. in the season opener.
