SMU climbs, Rowe sizzles for UCLA

You ready? Let’s do it.

Marquee Match:
The tie goes to Boston College. The No. 11 Eagles earned a 1-1 tie with No. 4 North Carolina on Friday in what was their fourth draw of the season. North Carolina had previously been perfect in the ACC and was on the verge of taking a loss before Alex Dixon delivered a game-tying goal in the 68th minute. Conor Fitzpatrick put Boston College on top in the 19th minute and the Eagles held firm in a positive result for their program.

Beat down of the week:
Michigan State swept through the Midwest this past week in impressive fashion, beating Western Michigan 5-0 then taking it to Wisconsin 3-0. Goalkeeper Avery Steinlage (#20 Big Conference Top 20) had 12 combined saves to keep a fresh clean sheet for the week.

Climbing effortlessly: Isn’t that a good deal. SMU took the week off in preparation for their showdown with Tulsa this Wednesday and they were still able move up two spots to No. 8 in our Tournament Ranking. The Mustangs have been strong enough on the field this year but they may be even better off it.

Upset of the week: Little ol’ UIC pulled off a big one Wednesday when they took down No. 19 Ohio State 1-0. The same Buckeyes who were just on the rise a couple weeks back after a great tie against Akron were rendered  powerless against the Flames.

Derek Huffman scored the winner for UIC in the 29th minute and Ohio State only managed three shots on goal for the match.

You’re kidding me:
From the department of “you can’t be serious” comes Loyola Marymount’s wild 1-1 tie against Santa Clara on Friday. The Lions tied the game with 1:10 left when they got a goal from … the goalkeeper. Sophomore Max Young, who was making his first appearance of the season no less, came forward on an all- hands-on-deck corner kick and delivered a crucial header for a score.

It was the first ever goal by an LMU goalie and could not have come at a better or more improbable time.

Thriller: UCLA outlasted California in a beauty Sunday, a 1-0 double overtime finish. Freshman Kelyn Rowe (#8 Top 100 Freshmen) came through with the game-winner in the 105th minute. A former Discover Europe player, Rowe has a six-game scoring streak for the No. 10 Bruins as he continues his first-year success.
