Look here for the best rundown we can come up with about who's going to the u20 World Cup. I don't think the list is final, because in a contact sport lots can happen, but it's pretty close.

I agree that the reports are that Florida State appeared stronger than Florida, but lost the game. However, Florida State is very strong, so the fact that it outplayed Florida doesn't mean that much. It should be a great game.

As a matter of interest, Brown beat Penn State yesterday, 1-0, scoring the winning goal in the 9th minute of overtime.

I agree that we never should count out Santa Clara. They always will put up a maximum effort. As for Pepperdine, they beat #23 ranked Tennessee yesterday, 2-0. In addition, San Diego had a slow start to the season but seems to be coming together now.

By the way, the West Region results against teams from other regions yesterday: 12-5-2.

Also, from another website, a Stanford fan's description of their crowd against North Carolina last night (1-1 draw): "a huge, rowdy sell out crowd." Attendance: 2,273. Can we get them up here some day? (I doubt it, since they've figured out the RPI game and play most of their non-conference games against non-West Region teams.

GO PILOTS!

Yeah, I loved the look on her face when she scored tonight.

You mean this look?

ah geez,
what a great pic. but while i thought the shot was planned, ppt was right. none the less, the smile says it all! a phenomenal game by elli!!

as for hailee redshirting this year, i talked to her mother an she is the one who told me that. yes, it's all dependant on kelsey staying healthy this year. that's probably why hailee dresses, travels an warms up with the team. you never know if kelsey is giong to get her bell wrung like she did last year vs. ucla. if kelsey stays healthy, hailee redshirts i am almost positve. after all, moms know.

Halley Kreminski

Anyone know the status of Halley K? Aside from Rachael R and Hailee DY she is the only player not to appear in the last 3 games. It would have been an opportunity to see her.

I'm guessing she's nicked up a bit. She didn't play in Seattle after playing about 25 minutes against USC, and didn't play the first game this weekend.

Considering the bench was pretty much emptied in all those games, It's the best I can come up with.

Comment on Michelle Olivier at holding midfield: She did an excellent job on the defensive end, and I hope she can add some zest to the offense from that spot. Surely the outside backs aren't the only players with the green light to go forward if the opportunity arises. Olivier could look to go direct to goal with long balls or on the dribble, knowing that she has speedy coverage behind her. Most of her offensive distribution this weekend was to the wing mids or to her back line rather than up the field. While the Pilots are probably not expecting to score much from the holding mid spot, it can happen, and Olivier has shown the leg and the heading skill to do it.

I liked the way that she settled into a pattern of playing the easy one- and two-touch passes. This weekend it was the right thing to do. There were chances to attack down the wings both games and both outside defenders were on the offense constantly. When they push forward it requires that the defensive mid drop deeper to cover, so Olivier was spending a lot of time deep. That appears to be the Pilots MO this year. I'd be happy to see her going forward a little more, but Keelin plays it pretty much the same way, I think. Olivier can hit a good long ball and has played some good dead ball kicks and crosses. If she gets more chances to play in this position I expect that she'll grow in confidence.

Wonder if Garrett will revert to strongest line up for Florida game? with Keelin back in holding mid and Olivier back in mid of defense ...

That seems likely if Korie needs a bit of time to heal. It's a long season and there's no sense in sticking kids in there who are nicked up.

I had a long discussion with a UCLA fan about the Pilot's substitution patterns before the season (that we basically don't.)

BOY! has that ever gone out the window!

Geezer, if it were not for the U20 World Cup situation I think that your discussion would have likely been on target. I think the focus would have been giving Olivier, Burk, Foxhoven, and maybe McCluskie lots of playing time and getting settled with existing players.

That's only one goal now. Now Garrett also has to explore what happens when the three amigas are gone so there's a whole raft of experiments. Rachael's injury just adds to the uncertainty.
