[CONNECTICUT-CREIGHTON] Christian Blandon's goal with 90 seconds remaining in regulation gave No. 12 seed Creighton a 1-0 win at No. 4 seed Connecticut in front of a sellout crowd of 5,100 fans. The Huskies had a 10-2 edge in shots in the second half but could not score. Creighton (17-3-3) returns to the Men's College Cup in Hoover, Ala., where it will face Indiana in Friday's semifinals.
“Like I said last week, this is a cruel game," said UConn coach Ray Reid. “You’ve got to score more than they do. You can’t rely on this guy next to me [goalie Andre Blake] all the time to pitch a shutout.  If we had more time, with the character of this team, we probably get the goal back.  With a minute and a half, that’s tough. ”

Dec. 2 in Storrs, Conn.
Connecticut 0 Creighton 1. Goals: Blandon (Gomez) 89.
Connecticut -- Blake, Campbell, Liu, Wasserman, Mercado, Alvarez, Diop, Beso, Fochive, Bradley, Diouf. Subs: Morad, Matheson, Weir, Zuniga.
Creighton -- Gal, Hines-Ike, Amaral, Kallman, Ribeiro, Keller, Miller, Castro, Gomez, Barnes, Pitter. Subs: Makh, Blandon, Brown.
Att.: 5,100.
