Let's all support the men in their game on Sunday. If we win and St. Mary's loses or ties their game, there is a chance we could win or tie the WCC.

Good going, ladies. I'm looking forward to reading posts from people who were at the game.

Interesting that Dees replaced DeYoung for the shootout. As good as DeYoung evidently played during regulation, I thought last year during the playoff loss that there was no chance that she would get her hands on a penalty shot. I'm not sure why, size maybe? - but she indeed never came close. So, even though Dees didn't actually stop a shot, I thought it was probably a good move. I also noticed Danielle missed another penalty shot. Was it a bad miss? I wonder if she is aiming too much instead of just punching it in.

I agree completely soccerjoy, there should be no excuses on Sunday and the men could really use 4,000+ in the stands!
Dees is just more athletic than DeYoung, gets down to shots faster.
And it's a slippery slope once you start missing penalties. Dani's confidence has to be shaken, and no matter how good a player you are, once you miss, it is incredibly difficult to regain that confidence.

DeYoung did make some spectacular saves in the game, but having said that I was glad to see Dees come in for the PKs. Although she didn't stop any she came close and also successfully took our last PK! Dani's shot was directly at the keeper and did not have good speed.

The fact that Dees came close might very well have caused their shooters to shoot closer to the edges and therefore miss.

The box score says that attendance was 1503. Does anyone have an idea what percent was purple?

Wish I could have been there.

It was a fine time in Corvallis. Pilot fans were there in force and the Drum Squad was it's usual vocal self. The game was exciting with the Beavers playing their usual Pac12 physical style (fouls OSU 19, UP 8). The officiating was lax and the foul totals could have been much higher. Despite being out shot, I thought the Pilots did a good job of controlling the action. No one stood out for me in this game, everyone played great.
The pre-game event at the Hilton next to the soccer field was a lot of fun. The team was apparently staying at the hotel. They were in the lobby when many folks arrived for the event. We were able to wish the players and coaches well before they headed out to the field and we headed to the tent on the patio to eat and drink. The team seemed loose full of energy which translated well to their play on the pitch.

I liked Erin's gamesmanship "helping" the ref and the opposing shooter put the ball on the PK spot. It reminded me of Cori in 2005 punching both posts and controlling the tempo of the shootout. It had to put players off their rhythm.

If you weren't there, you missed some Great battles between Cloee and OSU's Buckland and Richardson, and Taylor, MO and Sarah chasing down OSU attackers.

I though we were pretty good at opening them up a bit with speed on the wings and some pretty good passing in the midfield.

It seemed pretty clear we wanted to slow the pace a little in the first half especially. It turned out, so did they, which i think played into our hands later. I think perhaps the coaches didnt want an up and down running battle all game since we were relatively short handed.

And when we picked the pace up after their goal it produced results. Nice to see we had a higher gear and we had something left at the end.

It looked like players were having fum.


All in all, a great game between two worthy opponents.

It was a pretty even split, I thoughT. One of the tv reporters thought 1/4 of the people wer in purple. That's not a true measure on a rainy night. My rain kit, for example, is black. And the OSU team was in black, so I could have been confused for an OSU fan if you didn't hear my comments to the ref Very Happy

And UP fans were definitely more vocal. The team could definitely hear us and Garrett commented it felt like a home crowd to him.

Great game! 3 of us drove in rain and darkness to be there. Missed 20 minutes but OT made up for it. Just a battle all night for every ball. 1st half was rainy defensive affair. Lots more Beavers fans but Pilot purple andVilla students owns the east goal. 2nd half the attacks opened up on strong effort by both sides. OSU had chancesand scored on a beauty. Pilots answered with Frisbie breaking thru on a nice pass. Pilots and Beavers were toe to toe, all thru OT. Love that Dees went in for PKs... Great coaching move! What a night to be in purple. Long drive home wasnothing but smiles.

Thanks for finally getting us some details. We were wondering when youall were going to wake up and tell us what happened!!!

Question: did Erin place the ball after her kick or was she doing that for each OSU player or ??

One could question the decision to put her in that spot once again, particularly with the season hanging in the balance. While Dani has contributed greatly during her years as a Pilot, her apparent mental block and lack of confidence on penalty kicks, I can explain the poorly taken shots no other way, hurt the team against Santa Clara and could have cost the Pilots the game last night.

While it may be improbable that penalty kicks decide another game, it may be poor coaching to again place Dani and the Pilots in a position to lose if a penalty kick will decide the outcome. If she herself is fouled in the box I wish her a moments solace to deliver a well placed ball with pace.

Let's hope that this does not affect the rest of her play and she is a force to be reckoned with against FSU.

I listened to a fair part of the game last night. Hard to get a sense of the play over the computer, but did note that Frisbie seemed to make some positive plays, one almost leading to a second goal, and that Garret substituted much more than usual for the game.

Any chance that last nights play will result in a changed lineup for FSU? Garret seems to be playing a number of combinations, going with whomever is hot perhaps.

Go Pilots.

She was spotting the balls after their kicks and when they went to the spot she did, too. Then she could be seen gesticulating with the opposing player and the ref making sure the letter of the laws were followed.

The ref had his yellow card in his hand writing results on it, and at one point he waved her away with it and for a second I thought he was giving her a caution, but he wasn't.

It was pretty mucky around the spot, I think, so it probably matted a bit where the ball was placed.

Btw, the underclassmen and the defenders who took their shots did it with cleanly and with confidence. Dani's miss notwithstanding, they did a great job.

OSU' best shooter missed also.

Really, there were several players who didn't start who made a big difference. Loriel was another player who made a difference.

But yeah, Amanda's fresh energy was a help in keeping the other attackers fresh for OT as well as actually resulting in a goal.

One reason for the increased energy is that the team became a little less cautious when we got down a goal, and that abandon really put a lot of pressure on them. It also nearly resulted in a second goal for them, if not for two good saves from Hailee. If we had more healthy bodies, we could do that all game, maybe, but as it is we have to pick our spots more, goading opponents into mistakes before we push hard.

It doesn't seem likely that there will be any changes to the starting lineup. The substitution patterns might change based on game conditions.

BTW the long range forecast for Tallahassee on Friday is partly cloudy with a high of 72 and low of 50 for those of you planning on going to the game.

A couple of comments about the game:

There was an all out war on the field, the entire game, between Cloee and Chelsea Buckland. It appeared to me that Cloee had the assignment to man mark her, and the physical battle between the two of them was a joy to watch. After the game, as Cloee was walking to the locker room, we had a chance to chat with her, and we commented on that battle. She said it was really fun. She also thanked us about four times for coming down to see the game.

I think Ellen Parker had a brilliant game, both in controlling the ball and in delivering passes. A ton of work went into her controlling, holding through several challenges, and delivering the ball that went to Amanda for her goal.

I think the move of having Erin be the keeper for the PKs was great coaching. With no offense to Hailee, who played a very good game, I think if she had gone out to be the keeper, it would have been hard for the players not to have last year in the backs of their minds. Having Erin out there completely changed the equation.

I think Dani's PK woes are over. Somehow, I think the team prevailing in PKs even though she missed will change the pressure dynamic.

Fun trip down to Corvallis last night. I thought Cloee played a great game; far more aggressive than in the past. Now if that attitude can just rub off on the midfield...

I'm confused about substitution rules. I thought for the PKs you had to go with the players on the field at the end of the game; but clearly substitutions were made. What is the substitution rule for the PKs... actually what is the substitution rule in general? Seems like players rotate in and out without limit.

My understanding is that at the college level you can substitute freely throughout the game, and setting up for PKs.

I was at the game last night, and I'd say the split was close to 50/50. It was fun trying to out cheer the opposing fans "Go! Pilots/Beavers!". The OSU fans seemed surprised by the foul count, though I would say it was accurate and could have seen some cards.

While it was disappointing to see Dani miss her PK, she did set up the Pilot's goal with a very scrappy tackle in the Beaver's final third, winning the ball for UP and passing to Parker.

The substitution rules are pretty simple. If you are substituted in the first half, you have to wait until the second half to come back in.

If you are substituted in the second, you can have one re-entry in the second half. The overtimes don't allow a re-entry for the purposes of substitution.

An exception if you are injured due to a foul. In that case, you can re-enter and it doesn't count, and for the purposes of substitution, the person who came in for you isn't credited with a counting entry unless they stay in the game when you come back in.

Any 10 players can participate in the shootout. The most famous case case for UP was Coleen Salisbury, a lefty, who Clive had come in against #1 Stanford in the 2002 quarterfinal shootout and she made her shot against Nicole Barnhart that propelled UP towards the Championship, and the shootout in the 2005 semis where Garrett put her in in and she made her shot against #2 Penn State's Erin McCloud that put UP in the finals.

Coleen didn't play in either game before the shootouts.

Garrett had two lefties take shots in the shootout this time, and I think in made a difference.
