American Hilgenbrinck scores winner in Chile

[VIDEO] Illinois product Chase Hilgenbrinck scored the gamewinner for Chilean First Division club Nublense in its 1-0 victory over O'Higgins, which hadn't lost at home since April 2006 and had never lost to Nublense. Hilgenbrinck, who at Clemson University was teammates with Oguchi Onyewu, has started 13 of Nublense's 14 games this season, mostly at left back until he was moved to left midfield to fill in for an injured player.

Hilgenbrinck, 25, arrived in Chile in 2005, signing with Huachipato of the Second Division. He moved to Nublense and helped the Red Devils to the First Division, where they are this season's surprise team. In fifth place, they're in contention for a Copa Sudamericana spot.
