    Box Score

    Chicago, Ill.- Matt Spiess scored a pair of goals to guide the UIC men's soccer team to a 2-0 win over Milwaukee at Flames Field on Sunday night.

    The Flames (6-4-5, 2-1-3 Horizon League) extended their unbeaten streak at home to 15 matches with the victory over the Panthers (4-10-2, 4-2-1 Horizon League).

    Jovan Bubonja made a pair of saves to collect his sixth clean sheet of the season and UIC's seventh shutout of 2007.

    In the 26th minute Cesar Zambrano threaded the needle on a pass forward between two Panther defenders that Spiess sprinted ahead to collect, creating an opportunity that the freshman forward made good on with a strong shot past Milwaukee netminder Ryan Germann.

    Spiess struck again in the 72nd minute. Robert Younger's deep free kick into the box set up Ian Sarachan's clever pass off his own noggin and toward a streaking Spiess, who followed suit with a header of his own that hugged the net for his second marker of the match.

    The second half became much more physical on the pitch, with a total of seven yellow cards issued and 38 fouls whistled.

    The Flames have not lost a match to Milwaukee in their last five meetings (3-0-2), including three straight wins at Flames Field.

    UIC hosts Wisconsin next Sunday, October 28th at 2:00 p.m. at Flames Field.
