Pilots v. Seattle U.

Post by purple passion on Wed Sep 19, 2012 10:33 am

Seattle's loss to OSU from the SU perspective:

In their second straight Pac-12 network contest, Seattle University women's soccer (4-4-0) suffered a tough 1-0 loss at No. 21 Oregon State (8-1-0). The Redhawks played their first 2OT contest of the season but, with just over one minute left in the match, the Beavers were able to put the ball in the back of the net for the win.

An even contest throughout much of the game started from the very beginning, as the teams were tied in shots in the first period, 6-6. They also each had only one corner kick, and were nearly tied in saves, as Oregon State led, 3-2, in first half saves.

In the second half, each team had near chances to score in the last few minutes of regulation but incredible performances by both keepers kept the draw intact and sent the game into overtime.

The first overtime followed suit, as neither team was able to score, and the game went into a second and final overtime.

Both sides shared possession of the ball throughout the second overtime, but the Beavers increasingly started to drive, and in the 109th minute, Megan Miller was finally able to break through and put the ball in the net for the Oregon State win. This was her third goal of the season, assisted by Brandi Dawson.

In the tale of two goalkeepers, Brianna Smallidge (Port Orchard, Wash.) played an incredible game, recording a career-high eight saves in nearly 109 minutes of play. Audrey Bernier-Larose also recorded eight saves in her complete game shutout.

Taylor Bolibol (Woodinville, Wash.) and Julia Moravec (Spokane, Wash.) led Seattle U with three shots apiece and Jenna Richardson led the Beavers with seven shots total. Overall, the Beavers outshot the Redhawks, 26-12.

Seattle U will play one more road contest before returning home to Championship Field. The Redhawks will face Portland on Friday, Sept. 21 at 7pm before returning home for their non-conference finale, hosting Utah Valley on Sunday, Sept. 23 at 12 p.m.

Although this story said the shots were 26-12, the SOG were closer at 9-8. The box score didn't show how many fouls, but OSU had two yellows, and SU had one. I know the Pilots will be ready, but I'm also hoping there will be no injuries against this physical team.

It's not lost on Pilot fans or, i'm sure, on the players that Seattle holds a perfect D1 record on UP at 1-0.

They are 53 in the early RPI listing. Here is a look at their record this year.



they are on paper very winable, but i'm not sure the extent of UP's health after playing USC, which usually is a bit thuggish.

they lost to both Oregon Schools, but the OSU match was a last minute bail-out win for the beavs,

Has anybody seen them play this year?

I watch them play the two Oregon schools (on the Pac-12 network). I wasn't really analyzing deeply enough to remember anything worth posting here. But I do remember thinking the keeper looked pretty sharp, instinct-wise. I remember thinking she looked sharper than the UO and OSU keepers at times.

It looks like it will be a good match. I was a little amused with the "hoping there will be no injuries against this physical team" comment. They must think we're in the PAC-12 confused

Haha.

I took that comment as one from purple passion, not Seattle U.

It was my comment...and I do think SU is physical, therefore the wish for no Pilot injuries.

If our passing is fast enough, SU shouldn't be able to get close enough to injure anyone.

It's good to know that our finesse squad does not go rogue on the road.

To say that could be a bit more informative might be an understatement; could you please be more specific?

UP injuries? SU injuries? Who specifically?

How about Villa Drum Squad....will they be at full strength?

Several: "being more than two but fewer than many in number or kind"

My guess is much closer to the lower end of "several" than the higher end.

Well, not only was that fun, but it was a relief. It was 3-0, but for the most part, the game was more lopsided than the score.

With so many Pilots injured I'm sure battle tested Seattle U. felt they could come away with a good result.

Very impressed by Kaila's ability to turn her defender around leading to her scores, and was probably most impressed by the toughness and steady play of Lorielle. She did not hold back, including a number of headers, despite her recent concussion. She is probably the most improved player over last years performance.

A young team was even younger this evening...lots of freshman got more playing time than they've collectively had all season.

(Note: I could not attend the game, but watched it online. Sitting in my Vancouver, USA living room, I can see the lights of Merlo Field, drink beer from the fridge, and watch Pilots soccer live on my tablet. Is this a great country or what!!! cheers )

.500 is pretty good in baseball. Very Happy

Good to see Sipple back in the rotation. You may see Kendall soon. I think it was precautionary.

Possible that Kendall will play Sunday.

Pilots were off their game tonight but won any way. It wasn't pretty but it was a win.

A little perspective to how we are doing. Lots of positives from this game.

we got Lorielle back (she wasn't forward for any headers in the attack, though.) and she is progressing by leaps and bounds.

we got Sipple back (well, we got Sipple), and she did well for her limited minutes.

Five freshmen played, four got substantial minutes. all played quite well and at least held their positions.

The front three got three goals on three assists. they are finding ways to score.

the short passing game was the best defense we had out there. Seattle only had two shots on frame.

Taylor did well switching to the left side for Kendall, and we were still able to be dangerous with our crosses from both sides of the field. there were times last year when we couldn't do that.

Oh yeah. despite lots of changes for injuries, we have now surrendered one goal total in the run of play over eight games and now have scored 18 goals to our opponents 4.

But there is another comparison. We have shut out five of the first eight teams we have faced. this happens to be the same ratio as the 2002 champions had in their first eight games. but this team has scored 4 more goals and given up three fewer than that team did in its first eight games. I understand we had some good forwards that year. at this point in the season, the 2002 team were 6-2-0

our best win in the 2002 year in the first eight games was a 1-0 win over Notre Dame. in our ninth game, we tied UNC 0-0.

in order to keep up these comparisons, we need to beat Denver. we beat them 2-0 in the seventh game in 2002.

Not an absolutely brilliant win but the team went out, played their game plan, and the possession and pressure paid off. I liked it, especially without Johnson and Parker, two very important parts of the lineup.

The way the forwards play off each other is just beautiful. We haven't had that in a while and it's good to see. The offensive issues of last year seem to be behind us.
