    Tonight's Huskie Derby is the mid-week headliner, Washington at UConn. It could be low scoring, though, as so far this year, GKs Andre Blake of UConn and Spencer Richey of UDub have combined to allow only one goal.

    Friday night features a bunch of good games, among them
    Maryland @ North Carolina
    Marquette @ Michigan
    UCSB @ UCLA


    Saturday and Sunday aren't quite up to that level, although Cal St Northridge (4-0) faces its first big test when it travels to New Mexico (also 2-0-1).

    Charlotte @ UAB Friday night, should be a good game as well.

    Too bad that the Conn - Washington match is up against the US-Mexico.

    I am afraid VCU @ Akron F/9/13 may be more competitive than I like.

    Sounds like quite a snoozer so far. Zero shots on goal in the entire first half.

    That really sucks for Richey and U-Dub.

    UW senior GK Spencer Richey leaves UConn-Washington game with six minutes left on the back of a cart with his leg in a brace. #d1msoc

    Ended 0-0, by the way. I suspect that both teams will get an RPI bonus from this result.

    As terrible as that injury sounds for UDub and Richey (too late for a medical redshirt, iirc), it bears adding that Washington does have a reasonably interesting backup GK in 6'7 Ryan Herman. He'll need to step forward for them.

    NC State took a 2-1 OT win at William & Mary.

    Wolfpack goals from USC transfer Alex Martinez and UCLA transfer Holden Fender.

    USC = South Carolina, of course. :)

    Martinez is actually a transfer from High Point, just down I-85 from Raleigh.

    Regardless, a good win for the Pack.

    Duke beats Georgia Southern 1-0. The goal is scored by Sounders academy product Nick Palodichuk. Alex Long - an actual transfer from South Carolina ;) - made 8 saves for the shutout.

    Eric Martinez was the Martinez who played at USC.

    I'm guessing that if he wants to use it he gets a medical redshirt.

    Although, he has a solid enough body of a work (53 college starts plus his time with the 17s) that an MLS team might be willing to draft him and wait for him to recover.

    Eric Martinez.
    Alex Martinez.
    Alex Long.

    All from and played in the Carolinas. All left their original programs.

    I can't imagine how someone would confuse all that. :p

    (Not sure where Eric ended up. He had a season of eligibility as a R-Sr. Maybe he just graduated and moved on.)

    According to "ericsmom" from nc-soccer.net, Eric Martinez is in a masters program at the London School of Economics, "the opportunity was too good to pass up". Apparently, he did have offers from several colleges to play as he had one year of eligibility left.

    Kevin Stam also left South Carolina with a year of eligibility left and is now playing in Sweden.

    That is too good of an opportunity to pass up.

    Too good to pass up? But they suck at soccer! (or at least used to)

    They may suck, but the LSE Keynesians play with a lot of heart and travel first class on the English government's nickel.

    Surely the English Sandon is grousing about the presence of a Yank when there are plenty of native chaps available.

    Evansville takes down SLU 2-1 in 2OT. SLU with 2 goals in the last 240 minutes. Offense is lacking to say the least.
