PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- The Providence College men's soccer team defeated the University of Connecticut, 2-1, in overtime on Wednesday, September 10 in BIG EAST action at Providence, R.I. PC junior midfielder Bobby Brown scored 3:19 into overtime to give the Friars their first victory against Connecticut since 1984.
