Week one of the ECRC is in the books. Their website captured the action while the student paper recaps UMass's win over UConn.

Meanwhile in the SCRC, South Carolina beat Georgia and out west Arizona State have named their recruiting class.

Also in college scores, Ohio beat Cincinnati while Winona have won their ninth straight All-Minnesota tournament.

In club play, the Detroit Tradesmen beat the Cleveland Crusaders although Cleveland's DIV side beat Canton.

It's going to be the last World Cup for Dan Carter who is a hero in his hometown.

Be warned. If you are going to a World Cup match with a baby or toddler you need a ticket.

Maybe that is what is helping this year's tournament achieve record profit
