Fire's loss and college supremacy


The Fire lost in their bid to make it to the MLS Cup by losing to the New England Revolution 1-0. The goal was scored on a fantastic bicycle kick by Taylor Twellman. Even though they lost, the Fire made a huge improvement. It was so big, Chris Armas was thinking about not retiring. But he ultimately did retire.

On the college scene, UIC and Loyola both move on to the Horizon League Championships.

UIC continues to tear it up with a 4-0 victory over Wright State. They will play Milwaukee at 7:30 PM at Loyola Soccer Park.

Loyola received a bye and will play Green Bay on Nov. 16 at 5:00PM at Loyola Soccer Park.

Depaul advanced to the Big East Semifinals with a 1-0 win over Cincinatti. Whitney Young product Willy Lara started. They next will face Notre Dame at 5:00 PM on Friday the 16th. The game will be televised on CSTV.
