It seems to me to be the Enyeart and Foxhoven show.

Game over, 4-1 the good guys, had fun chatting with you guys, now I have to go and see if the Lady Noles can recover from a disappointing performance against Virginia, and take out the Hokies. Peace

I thought they were one of the 2 best teams we saw last year - even though we beat them.

Speaking of the Penn State website... check out this recap:

http://gopsusports.cstv.com/sports/w-soccer/recaps/092808aad.html

The recap itself is fine, but that headline... "No. 4 Portland Scathes by No. 22 Penn State".

Now... I'm no expert (though I an editor for a few years)... I'm pretty sure "Scathe" is not meant to be used like this. Did they mean "Scrapes" maybe? Normally I'm not one to point out mistakes like this (lord knows the mistakes I've made in my press releases), but this one just totally cracked me up.

The Penn State website has the headline


I had never seen the word used in that context before, so I looked it up.


scathe (sk)
tr.v. scathed, scath·ing, scathes
1. To harm or injure, especially by fire.


[Middle English skathen, from Old Norse skadha.]


I guess its right -- we smoked 'em.

I guess the PSU couldn't bring himself to write the appropriate word he was thinking of there "skates"

I love the skewed reporting. I have never heard a save described this way


M.A.C. Hermann Trophy watch-list member Katie Schoepfer (Waterford, Conn.) had two huge opportunities late in the first half. After receiving the ball from Zoe Bouchelle (Cockeysville, Md.), Schoepfer was on the break-away passing the defense and finding herself one-on-one with Davis. As she launched her shot, Davis was forced to sprawl out to prevent the goal. Shortly after, Schoepfer got another shot by herself which ended up deflecting off the right pole.

Its like saying "Schoepfer was on the break-away.... As she launched her shot Davis was forced to raise her hands up and move one step to her left to prevent the goal." Too much. Herman Trophy watch-list member must be for those who get to watch someone from a top four team get the Trophy.

Well, I wouldn't call 4-1 "skating" by. I'm going with Geezer and saying we smoked 'em.

Back from the game. I will have a more extensive recap later, but I will say that the game was closer than the score would have you believe. Penn State had a lot of shots, and one that beat everybody, including Kelsey, but went off the post. Both teams were playing pretty rough, due to the conditions, I believe, but it seemed to me that Keelin got the worst of it. She was down and up again quite a bit. Still managed to out leap everyone to get to the headers, though.

Michelle O and Kassie are doing a bang up job in the central defense. It was clear that Korie couldn't quite keep up with PSU's speedy forwards (they were playing a bit of the Route 1 game, but it was nearly effective multiple times) so I was glad to see Kassie really working out in that position.

Penn State fought hard all game long, and if I didn't know the scoreline deep in the second half, I might have been concerned. We're really going to miss Enyeart and Keelin during the playoffs.

What you say is true. The box score listed Kelsey having to make 6 saves that means there were four more shots on frame that what even the Penn State article described.

yeah, and the box lists no pipe shots, but game descriptions tell of at least 1 for each side.

I watched the game via the video that was accessible from the Penn State site. I, too, thought that the game looked considerably closer than the 4-1 score indicates.

#28 Danielle Toney is big & fast & outran our defense early in the match; she also scored their only goal. But she didn't play much in either half.

We have quite a few offensive weapons, but I think Enyeart is the center of the offense. When she is up top and gets the ball, she makes things happen. She can outrun or outmaneuver the defense. And even if she doesn't score herself, she opens things up for others. Her crosses from the side set up the last 2 scores in this game. And Foxhoven's great positioning and finishes have often been set up by maneuvering by Michelle.

Elli made her presence known also. The PSU announcers commented favorably on Michelle's and Elli's play. Workhorse efforts again from Megan R and Keelin.

I think the wet conditions in both games this weekend negatively affected our touch game more than they did the opposition (and recall UCLA in the tournament last year). But we've got to play in the conditions presented.

By what I am putting together, There were two offside goals called back on PSU and at least one of the post that beat Kelsey and Co according to NP put that together with the header off the corner kick that went over the top and its conceivable we could have lost 5-4!

I am speculating that is what at least contributed to the game feeling closer than the score. You how it feels when our goals get called back for offside. You kind of feel emotionally like you still scored. Unless the players offside were really blatant. Dang I wish I could have seen that.

Big ten has its own tv channel. Wish we could get that kind of exposure. Not even the Pac 10 gets it.

To change the subject for just one sec: This topic's 99 posts is an all-time Pilot Nation record. The record for Views is still a few hundred away.

Boy, isn't this PSU match generating big-time interest or what?

(We already this morning smashed the all-time people on Pilot Nation at the same time by darn near double!!!!!) Twisted Evil
