TopDrawerSoccer men's college team of the week
It wasn't easy, Connecticut retained its hold on the No. 1 in the TopDrawerSoccer.com
Twin killing: Two streaks came to an end when Maryland took down Creighton 1-0 on Friday in one of the bigger matches of the season. For starters, the Blue Jays dropped their first match of the season and in doing so also allowed their first goal to an opponent. It came with Casey Townsend converted a 10-yard strike in the 13th minute which stood up for the match. It wasn't Roger Bannister breaking the four-minute mile but it was a kind of milestone for Creighton opponents and makes them feel all the more human from here on out.
