    Memphis, Tenn.- The UIC men's soccer team pulled out a victory with just seconds left in their game against UNC-Wilmington, edging the Seahawks, 2-1, to win the title at the Memphis/Diadora Tournament on Saturday.

    Senior Dennis King, who topped Centenary the day before with an overtime goal, beat Seahawks keeper Mike Shaughness to a through ball from Jason Kieffer with seven seconds left in regulation and knocked the ball into an empty net for the game-winner.

    The Flames 3-0 record now marks the best start to a season in school history.

    Eric Cervantes scored his second goal of the season unassisted in the 34th-minute to put UIC on top first. Cervantes has tallied a point in all three games this season.

    UNC-Wilmington forward Adam Stauffer tied the score in the 53rd-minute with a 35-yard laser past goalkeeper Ross Cain.

    King answered in the 90th-minute with his third tally of the season, all scored in this weekend's tournament, that gave the Flames the win over the Seahawks (2-1).

    UIC is back in action on Friday, September 12 against St. Mary's at the OSU/Diadora Classic in Corvallis, Ore. at 4:30 p.m.
