In a game matching a pair of unbeaten programs, #18 Bradley and Memphis combined for just one shot on goal in the second half, but it proved to be the game-winning strike as the visiting Tigers (5-0-1) handed Bradley (4-1-2) its first loss of the season Friday night with a 1-0 decision in the second game of the Hotels at Grand Prairie Classic at Shea Stadium. Bradley controlled the possession for big chunks of the second half, outshooting the Tigers 7-2 after the break, but Memphis forward Mark Sherrod broke loose on a quick counter to score the game-winner at 80:14.  Running onto a long ball from Wil Linder, Sherrod lost his left shoe near midfield, but kept up his sprint into the left flank and hit a left-footed shot from the top of the 18 inside the right post for his fifth goal of the year and fourth game-winner.
