Men's Soccer Loses in AAC Finals

Huskies fall in PK shootout to USF in championship of AAC Tourney

Death. Taxes. And UConn soccer losing on penalty kicks.

In yet another in a long line of crushing post-season defeats by way of a shootout, the men's soccer team comes home from their first trip to the AAC tournament in Dallas empty handed.

After playing USF to a scoreless draw through regulation and both overtime periods, the Huskies failed to convert their penalty kick in the 9th round of a tense back-and-forth shootout, giving the Bulls the inaugural tournament title. UConn, kicking second in the shootout, had two chances to win the match in the 7th and 8th rounds, following saves by keeper Andre Blake. However, UConn's Nicholas Zuniga and George Fochive were both turned away by USF goalie Brentton Muhammad.

The Huskies bring an 11-2-6 record into the NCAA tournament with a presumed at-large bid, and now await their seeding and opponent. The men's soccer selection show will be Monday at noon.
