Women's Soccer Travels To Oregon Friday
Oct. 18, 2000
CORVALLIS, Ore. -
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20
Oregon State at Oregon, 3:00 p.m.
Oregon State (6-9-1 overall, 0-3-1 Pacific-10) travels to nearby rival University of Oregon (4-11-0 overall, 1-3-0 Pacific-10) in search of its first Pac-10 Conference victory.
OSU battled ranked opponents UCLA (No. 7) and USC (No. 10) last weekend but were unable to pull off the upset.
'I was pleased with how we played last weekend, we performed well but didn't put enough goals on the board,' commented Beaver head coach Steve Fennah.
Not much incentive is needed for the Beavers entering this Friday's match with Oregon. OSU has dropped the last four meetings against its rival and is ready to turn the table.
'We're excited for the Oregon game, it's always a big game when you face your rival,' said Fennah. 'Oregon is a tough team physically and athletically, but we're up for the challenge.'
The Ducks are led by midfielder Chalise Baysa. Baysa has scored six goals on the season including two game-winners and dished out one assist. The 5-2 junior is Oregon's all-time leader in goals with 22. Forward Crystal David ranks second on the team with three goals and two assists.
The Ducks picked up their lone Pac-10 win with a 2-0 decision against Arizona on Oct. 8. Oregon was shutout last weekend against USC and UCLA, 3-0 and 8-0, respectively.
U of O allows an average of 3.07 goals per game, the most in the Pac-10.
BATTLING THE DUCKS: Oregon State leads the single season series with Oregon 5-4-0 dating back to 1988. The Ducks have given the Beavers problems in recent years, dominating OSU in the last four outings. U of O has won the last four meetings, outscoring the Beavers 12-2. Oregon has posted back-to-back shutouts (3-0 and 4-0) in 1998 and 1999, respectively. The last Beaver victory was a 5-0 pounding in Eugene during the 1990 season.
OREGON STATE INJURY REPORT: Senior defender Allison Hamada's status is questionable for this Friday's contest with Oregon. The 5-4 Aiea, Hawaii native is nursing a sore ankle.
LOOKING BACK AT UCLA: Oregon State battled the No. 7 ranked UCLA Bruins to a scoreless tie in the first half but allowed three goals in the second frame, to fall 3-0 in last Friday's Pacific-10 Conference match. The Bruins scored all of their goals off corner kicks. Forward Stephanie Rigamat started the scoring in the 47th minute of the match, punching what proved to be the game-winner past OSU keeper Jerika Duran off a Bethany Bogart corner kick. Duran finished the night with eight saves, including several spectacular plays, while facing 24 Bruin shots. It was Duran's second highest save total of the season behind a nine save performance in Oregon State's 1-0 loss at Saint Mary's College on Sept. 15. OSU was held to just one shot during the match.
LOOKING BACK AT USC: Oregon State gave No. 10 ranked Southern California a scare last Sunday afternoon but its upset bid fell short as the Trojans rallied for a 5-2 victory. The Beavers trailed 2-0 at the half but tied the score with two goals in the opening six minutes of the second frame. Junior BreeAnna Jolin knocked a pass from Leila Kaady off the crossbar for the first Beaver goal and then returned the favor by assisting Kaady in scoring goal number two at the 50:48 mark. Southern Cal's Andrea Warner scored the game-winner with 73:03 to play and USC added two more insurance goals at the 88:25 and 89:15 marks to make the final margin. OSU's two goals against USC tied for the most allowed by the Trojans this season. Florida knocked in a pair of goals to hand USC its only loss of the season.
BEAVERS GET OFF THE SHOTS: Oregon State has 246 shots on goal this season while its opponents have sent 219 balls towards the net. The Beavers need just 22 more shots in the remaining five matches to equal last season's total of 268 shots.Hot Shot
KAADY CAN'T BE STOPPED: Junior midfielder Leila Kaady scored her first goal of the season and registered her first assist of the year last Sunday against USC. The 5-5 Clackamas, OR native has now scored two goals and totaled six assists in her career as a Beaver.
OREGON STATE HEAD COACH STEVE FENNAH: Steve Fennah, in his third season as Oregon State's head coach, has a 20-32-3 record at OSU. In 1998, Fennah took over the program and tripled the Beavers' win total from the previous season with a 6-12-1 mark, OSU then surpassed its 1998 victory total by gaining its seventh win just 11 games into 1999 and Oregon State finished 8-11-1. Fennah spent 5 years coaching at Jesuit High in Beaverton, Ore. Fennah guided Jesuit to 4 straight Oregon Class 4A state titles in his final 4 seasons at the school.
