Oct. 5, 2009
CHICAGO- UIC freshman midfielder Ivan Stanisavljevic (Belgrade, Serbia/Sportska Gimnazija) was selected to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week unveiled on Monday, Oct. 5.
Last week the rookie offensive force was unstoppable, scoring four goals in two UIC victories.
Stanisavljevic produced the first hat trick in four years for the Flames in a 3-1 victory against Wright State on Oct. 2. He scored three unassisted goals against the Raiders, breaking a 1-1 tie with 80 seconds left in regulation on a beautiful bending free kick and icing the win with a breakaway tally in the final minute.
He also converted a penalty kick in the Flames' 3-0 decision over Wisconsin on Sept. 30.
Stanisavljevic now has a team-leading five goals on the year.
UIC hosts the nation's top-ranked side, Akron, this Wednesday night at 7 p.m. in the Flames' RED OUT match presented by Enterprise Rent-A-Car. Fans are asked to wear red in support of the Flames, and the first 100 students receive a commemorative RED OUT t-shirt courtesy of UIC Athletics and Enterprise.
