[COLLEGE MEN: Weekend] After No. 1 Connecticut on Saturday, No. 2 Creighton lost on Sunday, dropping a 3-2 decision in overtime to William & Mary at the Stihl Classic.

Jeff Bombelles scored the golden goal in the 107th minute to complete the comeback for the Tribe, which had tied the match at 2-2 in the 82nd minute on a goal by Chris Albiston.

Josh West had put W&M ahead in the fourth minute before the Bluejays came back on goals by freshman Marvin Iskra in the 11th minute and Sean Kim in the 64th minute.

-- Connecticut had suffered its first loss of the season as the Huskies dropped a 1-0 decision to visiting Bradley on Zach Kovacevic's penalty kick 150 seconds into the match. The loss was the Huskies' first at home in the regular season in 40 games.

The early penalty kick was awarded when senior forward Chris Olivera was clipped by UConn keeper Andre Blake while trying to run onto a ball flicked into the penalty area by defender Grant Bell. The goal snapped Blake’s 293-minute scoreless streak.

Though UConn outshot Bradley, 7-3 in the first half and 20-6 overall, the Huskies did not manage to put a shot on goal until the 68th minute. Bradley goalkeeper Brian Billings made five saves to record his third shutout of the season and 16th of his career.
