2006 UW-Oshkosh Women's Soccer News

Titans To Visit Costa Rica

The UW-Oshkosh women's soccer team travels outside the United States for the first time when it visits Costa Rica in May to play a series of exhibition matches.

UW-Oshkosh, which compiled a 12-7-2 record and appeared in the NCAA Division III Championship last fall, will spend nine days of training in Costa Rica from May 14-22. The Titans will play three matches against Costa Rican teams and tour the cities of San Jose, Arenal and Jaco Beach.

"The team is really excited about this international trip to Costa Rica," said UW-Oshkosh head coach Erin Leinweber. "We've been planning the trip for over a year and now the last pieces are falling into place."

UW-Oshkosh will spend the first three days of its trip in San Jose before making two-day visits to both Arenal and Jaco Beach. The Titans then return to San Jose for the final two days of their excursion. UW-Oshkosh is scheduled to play matches on May 16 and 21 in San Jose and May 17 in Arenal.

"This trip will be a fabulous experience for the student-athletes and coaching staff," added Leinweber. "This international experience will allow the players to grow as students, athletes, and as people. It's an experience that I hope my players will cherish for a long time."

Leinweber selected GoPlay Sports Tours, a well-established educational travel agency based in Boston, Mass., to organize her team's trip.

UW-Oshkosh opens its 2007 season on Sept. 1 by hosting St. Norbert College at J.J. Keller Field at Titan Stadium.

Three Titans Named To NCAA All-Region Team

Three members of the UW-Oshkosh women's soccer team have received NCAA Division III All-Central Region honors by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).

The 2006 all-region squad consisted of 33 players, with 11 named to each of the three teams. The selections were led by the five representatives of UW-Eau Claire and the four of Wheaton College (Ill.).

Duhawks Spoil Titans' NCAA Postseason Debut

The first appearance in the NCAA Division III Championship for the UW-Oshkosh women's soccer team was a disappointing one as the Titans dropped a 1-0 decision to Loras College (Iowa) on Wednesday (Nov. 8) at J.J. Keller Field at Titan Stadium.

UW-Oshkosh (12-7-2) out-shot Loras College (11-7-2) by an 18-4 count, but the Duhawks managed to pull out the first-round victory thanks to a late second-half goal.

Loras College, which advances to the second round of the NCAA Division III Championship for the fifth consecutive season, tallied its only goal when Alex Clesen took a pass from Katie Ryan and scored on a breakaway with 10:21 left in the match. Clesen's third goal of the year came on the Duhawks' lone shot of the second period.

UW-Oshkosh dominated the flow of play as it totaled six shots in the first half and 12 in the second. Erin Rickard (Fr. • Cedarburg) led the Titans with four shots, while Maggie Hoffman (Jr. • Waukesha) and Cassie Loehr (Fr. • Mt. Calvary) totaled three each.

Loras College, a first-time opponent of UW-Oshkosh, counted its four shots on two by Ryan and one by both Clesen and Holly Wilson.

UW-Oshkosh goalkeeper Katie Bera (Fr. • Neenah) allowed the lone Loras College goal and played the entire match without having to make a save.

Loras College goalkeeper Torey Murray stopped nine UW-Oshkosh shots, including six in the second half, to earn her ninth shutout of the season. She entered the match with a 0.71 goals against average.

UW-Oshkosh, which received one of the 22 at-large selections to this year's NCAA Division III Championship, had its sixth 12-plus win season in the past seven years end with its loss to Loras College.

Loras College, appearing in its sixth NCAA Division III Championship, moves to a second round contest with Washington University (Mo.) on Saturday (Nov. 11) in St. Louis, Mo. Washington University, the sixth-ranked team in the NCAA Division III by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, takes a 16-2 record into Saturday's match after receiving a bye in the first round.

Titans Receive First NCAA Postseason Bid

UW-Oshkosh will be represented in the NCAA Division III Women’s Soccer Championship for the first time in school history when it hosts Loras College (Iowa) at 6 p.m. on Wednesday (Nov. 8) at J.J. Keller Field at Titan Stadium.

UW-Oshkosh, which began its women's soccer program in 1993, received one of the 22 at-large selections to this year's NCAA Division III Championship. The Titans compiled a 12-6-2 record during the regular season, including a second-place 6-2 mark in the WIAC. UW-Oshkosh, 92-38-10 in its last 140 games, finished second in last week's WIAC Tournament after losing a 3-0 decision to UW-Eau Claire in the championship match.

Loras College tallied a 10-7-2 record during the regular season, including a second-place 7-1 mark in the IIAC.

Wednesday's match will be the first between the two schools, with the winner advancing to meet Washington University (Mo.) at 4 p.m. on Saturday (Nov. 11) in St. Louis, Mo.

All games, except the semifinals and final, will be played on the campuses of competing institutions. Disney’s Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., will be the site of this year’s semifinals and final.

For the first time in history, two WIAC women's soccer teams will participate in the NCAA Division III Championship.

Blugolds Oust Titans For WIAC Tournament Crown

Liz Kooistra scored once in each half as top-seeded UW-Eau Claire defeated second seeded UW-Oshkosh, 3-0, in the championship match of the WIAC Women’s Soccer Tournament held Saturday (Nov. 4) in Eau Claire.

UW-Eau Claire, the 18th-ranked team in the NCAA Division III by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, captured its second straight WIAC Tournament title with the victory. Last year, UW-Eau Claire rallied to edge UW-Oshkosh, 2-1, in the tournament’s championship contest. The winner of the WIAC Tournament receives the league’s automatic bid to the 60-team NCAA Division III Championship.

Maria Iaizzo gave UW-Eau Claire (21-2) a 1-0 advantage when she scored her team-leading 15th goal of the season on a pass from Emily Meisinger at the 12:05 mark of the match.

UW-Eau Claire went ahead 2-0 when Kooistra scored on an assisted goal by Allison Smith at the 25:49 mark of the contest.

Kooistra sealed the victory for the Blugolds when she scored on an assisted goal by Amy Smith at the 88:11 mark of the game. The goal was Kooistra’s second of the match and 12th of the season.

UW-Oshkosh, which also suffered a 1-0 setback to UW-Stevens Point in the championship match of the 2004 WIAC Tournament, was limited to just eight shots by a stingy UW-Eau Claire defense. Jessica Hoffman (Jr. • Waukesha) led the Titans with three shots, while five other players added one each, including Erin Rickard (Fr. • Cedarburg) who hit the crossbar with her boot in the closing seconds. UW-Oshkosh (12-6-2) had three corner kicks in the match.

UW-Eau Claire finished the contest with 20 shots and four corner kicks. Iaizzo paced the Blugolds with six shots, while Kooistra added five and Amy Smith three.

UW-Oshkosh goalkeeper Katie Bera (Fr. • Neenah) stopped eight shots and allowed all three UW-Eau Claire goals. UW-Eau Claire goalkeeper Allie Rivard halted four shots to earn her third shutout of the year.

UW-Eau Claire, which defeated the Titans by a 4-2 score earlier this year, holds a 16-3-1 advantage over UW-Oshkosh in the all-time series.

UW-Oshkosh qualified for the championship match of this year’s WIAC Tournament with wins of 6-0 over seventh-seeded UW-Stout in the quarterfinals and 1-0 over third-seeded UW-Stevens Point in the semifinals.

Titans Edge Pointers In WIAC Tournament Semifinal

Amanda Matzke (So. • Green Bay) sailed a corner kick into the goal for the only score of the match as UW-Oshkosh edged UW-Stevens Point, 1-0, in a semifinal round contest of the WIAC Women's Soccer Tournament held Friday (Nov. 3) in Eau Claire.

The victory advances second-seeded UW-Oshkosh (12-5-2) to a championship round debate against top-seeded and nationally-ranked UW-Eau Claire (20-2) at 1 p.m. on Saturday (Nov. 4) in Eau Claire. UW-Eau Claire, ranked 18th in the NCAA Division III by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, qualified for its match with UW-Oshkosh by ousting fourth-seeded UW-River Falls (10-7-2), 2-0, on Friday in the tournament's other semifinal.

The winner of the WIAC Tournament receives the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Division III Championship.

UW-Oshkosh was in control during the first half, outshooting the Pointers, 7-1, and getting six corner kicks. The Titans had three consecutive corner kicks with under 15 minutes left in the opening period. The first appeared headed into the goal, but was deflected off an UW-Stevens Point defender out of bounds. The second was headed away and eventually led to another corner kick that Matzke perfectly curled inside the far post for her sixth goal of the season.

UW-Stevens Point (12-4-2) came to life in the second half with numerous scoring chances. The Pointers totaled five shots in the period and had several other quality passes into the box that were poked away by a stingy UW-Oshkosh defense. UW-Stevens Point had none of its shots on goal, but had its best scoring opportunity come when Liz Kidd fielded a ball near the top of the penalty box with under 20 minutes left and blasted a shot that bounced off the crossbar.

UW-Oshkosh totaled 12 shots, including two each by Matzke, Michelle John (Sr. • Whitefish Bay) and Cassie Loehr (Fr. • Mt. Calvary). The Titans had all six of their corner kicks in the first half.

UW-Stevens Point's six shots included two by both Jennisa Koch and Kaylee Weise. UW-Oshkosh’s defense did an outstanding job at limiting the number of touches for Weise, who entered the contest with 10 goals and nine assists over her last five matches. UW-Stevens Point launched all three of its corner kicks in the second half.

UW-Oshkosh goalkeeper Katie Bera (Fr. • Neenah) earned her third shutout of the season without having to make a save. UW-Stevens Point goalkeeper Meredith DeCaluwe blocked five shots and allowed the lone UW-Oshkosh goal.

It was another tight match between the two WIAC rivals, who have played four straight 1-0 contests. In fact, the last seven meetings have been decided by one goal or less. UW-Stevens Point, which nipped UW-Oshkosh, 1-0, earlier this year at J.J. Keller Field at Titan Stadium, leads the all-time series with the Titans by a 14-2-1 tally.

UW-Oshkosh is appearing in the championship game of the WIAC Tournament for the third straight season. The Titans have lost by one goal in both of their previous two visits to the final, 1-0 to UW-Stevens Point in 2005 and 2-1 to UW-Eau Claire last year.

UW-Eau Claire holds a 15-3-1 advantage over UW-Oshkosh in the all-time series. Earlier this year, the Blugolds posted a 4-2 win over the Titans at Bollinger Fields in Eau Claire.
