From The Spectator - Soccer Game One Recap

The women's soccer team bounced back from a slow start yesterday, eventually earning a solid non-conference win over St. Olaf (Minn.).

Juniors Lisa Marco and Rachel Nerison led the way with a pair of goals that occurred within minutes of each other in the second half. Initially, the team had trouble finding a rhythm to start the game, and struggled to get scoring chances because of it.

Coach Sean Yengo said part of the reason they struggled was because the team didn't seem comfortable, which is crucial for their style of play.

"We play a very up-tempo style of soccer and I think they were playing rushed instead of composed," Yengo said. "As a result, we were coughing the ball up quite a bit."

Freshman Paige LeGate, who attempted three shots, was one of the few bright spots for the Blugolds during the first half.

In the fifth minute LeGate dribbled down the sideline and turned the corner with space in front of her. She looked up and took a shot from inside the box that sailed just past the post and the goalkeeper's outstretched arms.

Eau Claire started five freshmen in the game, and have 12 total on the roster. Nerison, a team captain, said she was more than pleased with the play from the new players.

"This is definitely a different level of play than high school is, but they were all ready for it," she said. "They all stepped on to the field confident. They knew what they were doing, and it showed."

The teams went into the half still knotted in a scoreless draw.

Marco said she could clearly see a difference in how the team came out after the break.

"I think at first it was a little shaky and panicky, but we talked at halftime and I thought that really helped us," Marco said. "The coaches calmed us down."

The team came out much more deliberate in the second half, and seemed to have a better idea of what they wanted to do.

From WQOW - UWEC Soccer, Volleyball Previews

The season begins this week for both Blugolds women's volleyball and women's soccer teams.

The WIAC sports information directors have projected 2nd-place finishes for both UWEC programs in 2010.

Last season, UW-Eau Claire women's soccer finished second in the WIAC with a 6-1-1 conference record. The Blugolds only graduated three seniors off that team, but return their top six leading scorers.

From WEAU – UWEC women’s volleyball/soccer previews

The bar is being set high for the UW-Eau Claire women's volleyball team as they start their season this Friday. The Blugolds are ranked 13th in Division 3 heading into this weekend's Labor Day Classic. Rankings and expectations are nothing new for Eau Claire after five straight trips to the NCAA tournament. What is changing are the Blugolds goals, as coach Kim Wudi's squad wants to win the WIAC and make a deep run into the post-season.

Getting back to the playoff is the focus for the UW-Eau Claire women's soccer team this fall. A 1-0 loss in last year's WIAC title game ended a string of four straight NCAA appearances, but the Blugolds only graduated three players from last year. Eau Claire's also confident playing a more aggressive style, one they were still figuring out last season.
