    THIS WEEK: The University of Cincinnati womenís soccer team heads to California for the first time since 1999 for two weekend matches. The Bearcats will face Cal Poly SLO on Friday, Sept. 7 at 10 p.m. ET. On Sunday, Sept. 9, UC faces Sacramento State in a 4 p.m. ET match.

    ABOUT CAL POLY: Cal Poly is 0-2 on the year after one week of play. The Mustangs fell by a 3-0 score in their opening match of the season against Santa Clara. Cal Poly dropped their second match, 1-0 to San Diego. They return 16 letterwinners from last seasonís team that went 11-7-1 and captured the Big West Conference championship. The Mustangs are coached by Alex Crozier, who was won 115 matches in his nine years at the school. In the only previous meeting between the two schools last season, Cal Poly won 1-0 in a rainy, wet match at Meyers Field.

    ABOUT SACRAMENTO STATE: Sacramento State is 0-1 after losing their opening match, 2-1 in overtime, to Hawaii. The contest between the Hornets and the Bearcats will be the first ever meeting between the two schools. Sandra Asimos, in her eighth year is the coach of the Hortnets. They return 17 letterwinners and 10 starters from a team that went 9-6-2 last season.

    LAST WEEK: Cincinnati split its two matches with Big Ten opponents Indiana and Minnesota. On Aug. 31, the Bearcats opened the regular season with a 1-0 loss to Indiana. The Hoosiers scored with two minutes remaining in the first half and then turned up the defense to pick up the win. The Bearcats rebounded in their home opener, picking up a 2-0 win over Minnesota on Sept. 2. Sophomore Amy Mink (West Chester, Ohio/Lakota West) netted her first goal as a Bearcat at the 59:03 mark with an assist from senior Ann Thomas (Cincinnati, Ohio/Northwest) to put UC up 1-0. Cincinnati added an insurance goal with 12 minutes remaining in the match when senior Nickie Luse (Bellbrook, Ohio/Bellbrook) converted a penalty kick following a Gopher foul in the penalty box. UC controlled much of the match as they outshot Minnesota by a 16-5 count. Senior Christy Hoffman (Cincinnati, Ohio/McAuley) recorded her first shutout of the year, recording one save.

    BEARCAT DEBUTS: Five players made their Bearcat debuts over the weekend, with Amy Mink leading the charge. Mink, who transferred to UC from Massachusetts, scored the first goal of the year for the Bearcats and has started both matches thus far. True freshman Lisa Stephens (Union, Mo./Union) has also been a starter the first two matches of her collegiate career. Two other freshman, Marie Strelka (Trumbull, Conn./Trumbull) and Renee Balconi (Westerville, Ohio/Westerville North) have seen action in both matches, while freshman Angie Meyer (Fairfield, Ohio/Fairfield) made her debut against Minnesota.

    HOFFMAN RANKED IN SHUTOUTS: With her first shutout of the season against Minnesota, Christy Hoffman now has 19.5 for her career. She ranks fourth on the UC all-time list just 1.5 behind Julie Williams who posted 21 from 1981-1984. In Conference USA rankings, Hoffman is in third place, just one-half of a shutout behind current Saint Louis keeper Meghann Burke. The all-time conference leader is former Marquette standout Mo Bothwell, who record 34.5 shutouts from 1997-2000.

    GLENN NEARING MILESTONE: Now in her 19th season as Bearcats coach, Meridy Glenn is approaching a coaching milestone. Glenn has 194 career victories, just six away from joining an exclusive club. Only 15 coaches in NCAA womenís soccer history have achieved the 200 win plateau. Glenn entered the season ranked 22nd all-time in coaching victories in any division and 15th in Division I.

    SIMONSON STILL MISSING: Senior Amy Simonson (Cincinnati, Ohio/Princeton), the top returning scorer on the Bearcats squad, missed the first two matches of the season over the weekend. Simonson, who is still recovering from a sprained ankle sustained in the first practice of the season, is expected to return to practice this week.

    OPENING DEFEAT A RARITY: The Bearcats season-opening loss to Indiana on Aug. 31 was unusual. Entering this season, Cincinnati owned a 16-5 record in openers.

    HOME SWEET HOME: Since Meridy Glenn took over as coach of the Bearcats in 1983, Meyers Field has been kind to the Bearcats. The Bearcats own an impressive 101-39-9 mark at home over the past 18 years. In the first home match of the season, UC is 13-5-1.

    BEARCATS RANKED IN REGION: The Bearcats are ranked 14th in the first Great Lakes Regional poll. Notre Dame is the number one team followed by Illinois and Kentucky. Conference USAmember Marquette is number five, while Evansville, a on-league opponent for UC this season is ninth.
