[CREIGHTON-SEATTLE: Men] The Seattle Sounders won't be playing in the MLS playoffs Sunday, but there will be soccer Sunday in Seattle. Seattle University, making its NCAA Division I Men's Tournament, stunned Creighton, 2-1, in the snow in Omaha to set up a date with No. 1 Washington.

Miguel Gonzalez scored twice for the visiting Redhawks, who came back from a goal down to defeat Creighton, which was bidding for a third straight College Cup.

“I’m thrilled,” said Seattle's WAC Coach of the Year, Pete Fewing. “Creighton is a fantastic team. They’ve been to the Final Four two years in a row so to come here and play a team with that kind of history and our [Division I] history, which is just starting, is a big thrill. I’m proud of the team because it’s not easy to come into this kind of situation and get this result, so we’re happy for our guys.”

The Redhawks are 9-0-3 in their last 12 matches -- since a 2-0 loss to Washington on Oct. 8. Creighton entered the NCAA Tournament with a record of only 9-8-2 but had played one of the toughest schedules in the country.

The Jays got on the board in the 15th minute as Carlos McCrary, who had previously played for Coach Elmar Bolowich at North Carolina, took a quick indirect kick in the Seattle box and fed Sonny Makh for his first goal as a Bluejay.

Gonzalez evened the score in the 31st minute with his 14th goal of the season.

Creighton had a chance to retake the lead in the 66th minute, but Bruno Castro, another Carolina transfer who had been 4-for-4 in his career on penalty kicks, sailed his shot high.

Gonzalez won the game in the 72nd minute with a shot from the top of the area for his 15th goal of the season to rank third nationally.

The loss snapped string of seven straight NCAA Tournament wins for Creighton at Morrison Stadium.
