Soccer Drops Horizon League Finale At Wright State, 1-0
Oct. 31, 2004
Fairborn, Ohio- The UIC soccer team's season-best three-game unbeaten streak came to a halt on Sunday, as Wright State pulled out a 1-0 victory over the Flames in a Halloween matinee.
UIC (5-10-2, 3-3-1 Horizon League) was in the game the whole way despite being outshot 21-10, including a 12-4 descrepency in the second period.
But Wright State (6-11-1, 3-3-1) needed only one score to come away with the win, as Ricky Strong's redirected shot off a corner kick beat Jeff Engelbrecht in the 54th minute.
Engelbrecht was solid, with only the crazy redirect going past him on a day where he tallied six saves.
While the defense played well enough to keep the deficit at one goal, the offense was held scoreless for the first time since a 2-0 loss to Marquette on Sept. 22nd.
UIC wraps up the regular season with a home match against Northwestern at Flames Field beginning at 2:00 p.m. Wednesday's contest will be highlighted by senior day festivities for captains Adam Jones and Ryan Singer.
