    Box Score

    Indianapolis, Ind.- The seventh-ranked UIC men's soccer team suffered its first loss of the season at the hands of Butler, 1-0, inside the Butler Bowl on Saturday afternoon.

    The defeat halted a school-record 12-game unbeaten streak to start the season by the Flames (8-1-4, 2-1-1 Horizon League).

    It was also just the second loss in UIC's last 22 games dating back to last season and its first loss to a Horizon League foe in the last 10 matches.

    The Bulldogs (8-2-2, 3-0-1 Horizon League) netted the game's only goal in the 65th minute, when Kyle Pateros scored from 18 yards out off a feed from Eduardo Garcia.

    "A fair result," said UIC head coach John Trask. "If you don't prepare to win, you don't win. A very disappointing performance."

    Goalkeeper Jovan Bubonja made three saves and allowed a goal for only the third time in his last 11 starts.

    UIC meets Michigan State this Wednesday, Oct. 15 at 2 p.m. Central in East Lansing, Mich. That match is a makeup game after their Sept. 14 contest was washed out.
