Youth teams don't ordinarily publish roster numbers.

The flaming red hair will be a pretty good clue with Sippel.




For the ones from the North-

Leahy will big the big one in the middle of the defense.


(in red here)

Kurle will be the big one up top. with the blazing speed.

I went today but was a little late. Final score of 5-4. Sippel was not in attendance. Kurle had a sweet goal on a cross from her right. She blasted her volley at the near post to the far post. She forced a couple of saves. She also had a 1vs.1 with the keeper and the keeper smothered the ball at her feet. Leahy had a couple shaky moments when matched up against the pace of #7. Over all though she was pretty solid in the center. There was a great sequence in the box in the second half. A FC Portland had a blast at the endline that was bending go off of the crossbar. The loose ball was pounced on and the follow-up shot was saved off of the line by a diving defender.

Over all I was impressed with the quality of the match. It was interesting that there was no referee. Bill, Garrett, & the rest of the coaching staff was in attendance. I met a couple of the professors, one of them was one of the members of the panel that interviewed Clive for the head coaching job. He also told me about a soccer fan named Andrew Guest and now I am going to try to find his blog and the rest of his work.

Here is the link to my photos: http://www.flickr.com/search/?q=FC%20Portland%20vs.%20Emerald%20City%20FC.&w=all

Who is #7 for FC Portland, does anyone on this forum know? I watched the match and thought she was outstanding.

Turned out the FC Portland team was a year older than the Emerald City team. That is why Emily wasn't there but Sara Bridges was. I don't know the name of #7 for FC Portland but she is headed to Oregon.

Is #7 Micaela Capelle? She almost always knew where to put the ball immediately, she's fast, she has a strong shot, and she's resilient to make up for her size.

She is headed to Oregon, so presumably she was #7.

Thanks, Geez, for the link to Andrew's article. I became a Portland fan back in 1998 after watching them play UNC at the College Cup - that was a truly fantastic and scrappy game! In fact, UP's women's soccer program was a big part of my decision to move to Portland after getting out of the military (that and beer) and I'm glad I did. The women's program keeps me happy all year round, even though I am happier when they don't lose to teams from California or North Carolina. Very Happy

Next season promises to be even more fun than this one, but I have a question for those of you who have been following the recruits: has UP picked up a tall center defender? Our lack of size on the back line is a serious nagging problem.

Olivier and Colohan will both be healthy for the whole season hopefully. That will help.

fwill, you were there, too, in Greensboro? What an awesome game! One well coached team against 20 high school All Americans!

UNC had 20 players on the field and still had to go to OT? And the referee and ARs didn't see anything strange? Duck!

The only reason why Florida won the title in '98 was because UP injured so many of UNC's players in the semi-final game - some of the header collisions were really brutal! Didn't they go to three overtimes before UNC finally beat UP?

Does anyone have a video of that game that could be posted on youtube? I love watching Pilot highlights!

they went 4 ot,s with about 30 sec's left before a pk shootout when UNC scored. Goal was to far post upper corner from about 18 yds out and keep had no chance for a save.
