    CHICAGO – The UIC men’s soccer team concluded its spring season this past Saturday (April 26) at Flames Field in a 0-0 tie against Saint Louis, the 2013 Atlantic 10 regular season champions. The match marked the first time the two teams had met since the 2007 NCAA Tournament, which also produced a scoreless result.

    “Saint Louis was a great opponent with which to end our spring season,” head coach Sean Phillips said. “They brought a challenging balance of physical size and soccer to the game, to which our players did a good job adjusting after the first ten minutes.”

    “While it was difficult to break them down, we did create a few excellent opportunities which we were a bit unlucky to finish,” added Phillips. “Defensively, our hands were full against a couple of dangerous attackers, but with a few quality saves from our goalkeeper, solid set piece defending and our evolving team defending, we kept a clean sheet.”

    With the close of the spring season, the Flames now await preparations to begin their 2014 campaign. Last season, UIC clinch the Horizon League regular-season title before falling to Milwaukee in the championship match.
