Jeff Jacobs: UConn Soccer’s Chance For Glory Slips Away – Hartford Courant

These are the kinds of October nights that can help define soccer seasons. These are the kinds of early October nights that present a program looking to regain some of its glory with an enormous opportunity.

Yet these also are not the kind of midseason nights that demand immediate victory.

“I’d say probably they are the best team in the country,” coach Ray Reid said after UConn fell, 3-2, to Maryland at Joe Morrone Stadium. “I don’t think there is anybody in college soccer who has as many weapons as they do.”

As the years have passed, as the economics of major college sports push, push, push the attention toward football and basketball, there remain few prouder programs in Connecticut than UConn soccer.
