Soccer Shuts Out Baylor, 3-0; Patrice Feulner Nets All Three Goals
Aug. 31, 2001
TEMPE, Ariz. -- First year head coach Ray Leone claimed his first victory at the helm of the Arizona State women's soccer program (1-0) in convincing fashion with a 3-0 shut out over Baylor (0-1) tonight in Waco, Texas. The victory moves the Sun Devils' all-time opening day record on the road to a perfect 5-0.
Sophomore forward Patrice Feulner lit up the scoreboard for ASU as she scored all three goals in the game for her third career hat trick. Feulner scored twice in the first half as Arizona State built a 2-0 lead, then scored once more in the second half. ASU senior goalie Kristin Slater, a Spring, Texas native, blanked the Bears for her second career shutout.
Feulner's first two goals came on nearly identical plays, as she broke through a line of Baylor defenders for a one-on-one against Baylor goalkeeper Mel Pannell. Each time, she was able to shoot the ball past a drawn-out Pannell for the score. Freshman Stephanie Peel, another Texas player who hails from Plano, Texas, earned her first career assist on Feulner's second goal in the 42nd minute. Senior All-American Stacey Tullock assisted on Feulner's final goal in the 56th minute.
The Bears had several offensive threats, but quick play by the Sun Devils held Baylor at bay for the entire 90 minutes, preventing a crowd of 826 fans at Betty Lou Mays Soccer Field (the fifth-largest crowd in school history) to get involved.
Arizona State will play its second game of the Baylor Labor Day Classic on Sunday, September 2 when they face La Salle at 11:00 a.m. (Arizona time).
