College Weekend Rewind: Virginia scores 10, Tulsa falls again and more

NCAA tab

Not to be outdone by Maryland's seven-goal victory over Virginia Tech, No. 7 Virginia netted a whopping ten goals against Alabama A&M on Saturday night.

Brian Ownby, Will Bates and Ahkeel Rodney netted braces for the Cavaliers while Felipe Liberos, Brian Span, Jimmy Simpson and an own goal provided the rest. It was the highest goal tally for Virginia in 21 years and increased the Cavalier's goal tally for the season nearly 50% in a single game. Alabama A&M falls to 0-9 on the season while Virginia improves to 8-2-1.

No. 5 Tulsa lost for the second-straight match with a 2-0 defeat to No. 20 South Carolina. Senior Will Traynor scored 22 minutes from time to secure the road victory as the Gamecocks improve to 4-1 over their past five games. After winning their first six matches, the Golden Hurricanes have dropped three of four.

No. 12 Butler narrowly maintained their perfect record with a 2-1 overtime victory against University of Illinois-Chicago. Senior Ben Sippola converted a penalty kick ten minutes into the first overtime period as the Bulldogs survived their third-consecutive one-goal game. 

There were also a couple of minor upsets over the weekend. Lester Nare's brace led Princeton to a 3-0 defeat of No. 13 Brown in an Ivy League clash while No. 11 Creighton was unable to come from behind against Indiana, losing 3-2 courtesy of a couple of Will Bruin goals. On Sunday, Northwestern upset No. 15 Ohio State 2-1 thanks to goals from Oliver Kupe and Reed Losee.

  1. Mr. Boschini, Penn State / Michigan State is Big Ten, not Big East!

    Let’s hope for an upset Wednesday: Penn State – Akron in Happy Valley!!

  2. bruins are doing pretty well with the freshman heavy lineup. Wonder if they’ll be able to handle the top teams come the ncaa tourney.

  3. Wow! 10-0 score in a Division I game. I played at Alabama A&M for a year. That program was never run very well. It’s no wonder that this is the last year for the Bulldogs soccer program. It’s unfortunatd, but that dog needed to be euthanized.

  4. if i were a college player i’d be trying to get a trial with a lower Dutch team. Good place to head,

    but if failed always Scandinavian leagues willing to pay you $200,000 a year even if you kinda suck.
