CORVALLIS, Ore. -
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3
Oregon State at No. 8 California, 2:30 p.m.
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 5
Oregon State at No. 15 Stanford, 10:30 a.m.
Oregon State (6-11-2 overall, 0-5-2 Pacific-10) finishes its season this weekend when the Beavers travel to California for a Friday match against No. 8 Cal (15-2-1 overall, 5-2-0 Pacific-10) and a Sunday contest against No. 15 Stanford (11-5-1 overall, 4-3-0 Pacific-10).
The Beavers enter the week coming off a tremendous performance against No. 2 Washington and then struggling somewhat against Washington State.
'I think one thing our team needs to improve on, is playing well in back-to-back games. There are no easy games in this conference, all of the Pac-10 teams are good,' said OSU head coach Steve Fennah.
Oregon State will need solid performances this weekend to knock off No. 8 California and No. 15 Stanford. Fennah has been pleased with how positive his players have stayed throughout the season despite not yet finding the win column in Pac-10 matches.
'This weekend is just another opportunity for us to get a win, it's the final opportunity,' commented Fennah.
In order for the Beavers to be in position to defeat California, they will have to stop one of Fennah's former players. Laura Schott, a former Jesuit High star, was coached by Fennah before he moved to the college ranks. Schott leads the Golden Bears with a whopping 22 goals. The sophomore forward leads the Pac-10 in goals scored and goals per game, averaging over one goal per outing. As a team Cal has allowed just 12 goals this season and is a perfect 8-0-0 when playing in Berkeley, CA.
Things won't get much easier for OSU on Sunday as they wrap up the season with a morning match against Stanford. The Beavers have never won a match against the Cardinal (0-7).
Freshman Marcie Ward paces the Cardinal with 33 points on 10 goals and 13 assists. Ward's 13 assists lead the Pac-10 and are tied for first on Stanford's single season assist list. Marcia Wallis leads the squad in goals with 11.
BATTLING THE BEARS: California leads the season series with Oregon State 8-2-0 dating back to 1989. The Beavers have lost four straight to the Golden Bears and are winless when playing in Berkeley, CA (0-4). Cal has outscored OSU 14-1 in the last four matches and 7-0 in the last two contests.
CATCHING THE CARDINAL: Oregon State has never defeated Stanford, going 0-7-0 in the series dating back to 1990. OSU's Katie Henderson knocked in her fifth career penalty kick in a 2-1 loss against the Cardinal last season. As a team, the Beavers have never scored more than one goal in a match with Stanford.
LOOKING BACK AT WASHINGTON: Oregon State fell just short in its upset bid against the No. 2 ranked Washington Huskies last Friday in Corvallis. The Huskies rallied to score in the 116th minute to escape with a 2-1 double overtime victory and remain undefeated (7-0-0) in Pacific-10 conference play.UW got on the board first at the 11:14 mark but the Beavers knotted the score less than five minutes later when Leila Kaady found Ann Marie Fallow in front of the box. Fallow headed in the pass to tie the game.OSU played perhaps its best soccer of the season, out-shooting the Huskies 17-15 and earning more corner kicks (6-3), but the Beavers were unable to pick up their first Pac-10 win.
LOOKING BACK AT WASHINGTON STATE: Deka DeWitt's goal at the 100:31 mark lifted Washington State past Oregon State 1-0 last Sunday.The Beavers struggled offensively against WSU, getting away just two shots during the match. The Cougars fired 20 shots during the contest including five in overtime before DeWitt recorded the day's lone goal. The Beavers' five seniors (Crystal Archambault, Jerika Duran, Ann Marie Fallow, Allison Hamada and Elizabeth Pease) all saw action in the final home match of their career.
FAST FACT: Cal's sophomore forward Laura Schott leads the Bears and the Pac-10 with 22 goals this season. As a team Oregon State has scored a total of 21 goals on the year.Climbing the Ranks
KAADY MOVES UP: Junior midfielder Leila Kaady has moved up the Oregon State career assist list after last Friday's pass to Ann Marie Fallow against No. 2 ranked Washington. Kaady curently has seven assists and needs just one more to move into a tie for ninth place in the Beaver record books.
DURAN DOES IT ALL: Goalkeeper Jerika Duran has raised her total number of saves for the season to 77 after stopping 10 balls against the Washington schools last week. Duran is tied for fifth in total saves in the Pac-10 with Washington's All-America candidate Hope Solo.
JUST ANOTHER OVERTIME: Oregon State has played in a team record six overtime matches so far this season. Since joing the Pacific-10 Conference in 1993 the Beavers had never played more than four overtime periods in a season. Before this season OSU had played in just one double overtime match. This year, five of the six overtime matches have gone into double overtime.
OREGON STATE HEAD COACH STEVE FENNAH: Steve Fennah, in his third season as Oregon State's head coach, has a 20-34-4 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. He led the Crusaders to an 84-2-6 record and top-8 national rankings in each of his 5 seasons.
