TAGS:  college men


[THE AMERICAN: Men] No. 6 Connecticut ran its unbeaten streak to 12 games with a 5-0 win over SMU to advance to the semifinals of the American Athletic Conference Championship at Toyota Stadium, home of MLS's FC Dallas. The Huskies will face UCF in the nightcap of the semifinals that begin Friday when Rutgers, which upset No. 1 seed Louisville, faces USF.

Huskies got two goals from freshman Cyle Larin, the first multi-goal game of his career. Nicholas Zuniga, George Fochive and Allando Matheson also scored for UConn, whose five goals were a season high.

On consecutive days, Rutgers beat Cincinnati and Louisville to advance to the final four. The Scarlet Knights trailed Cincinnati, 1-0, before they scored five unanswered -- four scored by Kene Eze -- to win, 5-1, on Friday. The next day, sophomore midfielder Mael Corboz’s goal with just under five minutes remaining lifted Rutgers to a 1-0 win over No. 8 Louisville at Cardinal Park.

UCF extended its unbeaten streak to nine games when it beat Memphis, 2-1, on Abdi Yasuf's goal Saturday. Stiven Salinas scored his third goal in four games just before halftime to lead USF to a 1-0 win at Temple.
