  • Full Release

    UC, 3-4-1, hits the road for its first long road trip of the season, visiting UAB on Friday for a 7 p.m. game, and then traveling to USF for a 1 p.m. game on Sunday.

    BEARCATS IN C-USA: Following the win over Memphis on September 21, Cincinnati became tied with Marquette as the all-time winningest team in Conference USA history. Cincinnati posts an all time record of 56-15-7 in conference action, while Marquette is 56-17-5. Charlotte is a close second with an all-time record of 52-17-9.

    UC ON THE ROAD: Historically, the Bearcats have had almost as much success on the road as they have at home against C-USA opponents. Cincinnati?s all time home conference record is 30-6-3, while the road record is 26-9-4. This season, the Bearcats have played two games away from home, recording a tie against Miami (2-2) and a loss against Bowling Green (1-0)

    OVERTIME TRIVIA: With three out of the first four games going into overtime this season, the Bearcats set a new record for the most overtime matches at the beginning of a season. This year is the first time since 1999 that Cincinnati went into overtime during any of the first five games of a season.

    LAST TIME OUT:
    SEPT. 21: UC halted its losing streak at three with a 2-1 victory over Memphis in Conference USA action on September 21.

    Memphis wasted little time in denting the scorebard first as Yuiko Konno?s marker just 6:35 in silenced the home crowd giving Memphis a 1-0 lead.

    The Bearcats didn?t stay down for long though as Tasha Wagner (Middletown, Ohio/Middletown) tied the contest with her team-best fourth goal of the year just under six minutes later.

    Jennifer Sibert (Goshen, Ky./South Oldham) scored the game winner with a left-footed bomb past Memphis keeper Kari Rawe, putting the Bearcats up 2-1, just past the 60 minute mark.

    SEPT 19: The Bearcats lost their first conference game to TCU, 2-1.

    The Horned Frogs posted the first goal of the game in the eighth minute, when Amy Van Zandt took a pass from Jessi Moore, blasting a shot into the goal.

    The Bearcats scored when a shot by Lauren Buland (Indianapolis, IN/Lawrence Central) bounced off of TCU?s Karissa Hill, and into the goal.

    Amy Van Zandt took a long pass from Jenny Swanson early in the first half, and scored on a breakaway, putting the Horned Frogs up 2-1.

    THE SERIES AGAINST UAB: Cincinnati and UAB have played eight times in the past, with UC leading the series 6-2. The last game between the two schools was at the 2001 Conference USA tournament. The Bearcats won that game 2-0. Cincinnati was the conference champions that year, and advanced to the third round of the NCAA Tournament.

    SCOUTING UAB: The Blazers (6-2-0) are undefeated in Conference USA action, and are currently ranked third after defeating Charlotte, 3-0, and Louisville, 3-0, last weekend. UAB started off the year with a loss to Alabama, but are presently enjoying a four game win-steak.

    THE LAST MEETING: UC used a strong second half to knock off UAB 2-0 in the semifinals of the 2001 Conference USA tournament.

    Following a physical, evenly contested first half, the Bearcats jumped into the lead just 1:38 into the second half when Amy Simonson headed a ball over a defender into the box to Ann Thomas who knocked it in from 12 yards out.

    The Bearcats iced it at 67:54 with the final score of the match. Lisa Stephens (Union, Mo./Union) penetrated deep into the Blazer zone and fired a shot that deflected off a UAB defender. Nickie Luse fired it in from 10 yards out, putting UC up 2-0.

    CLOSE CALLS: Five of the eight matches between UC and UAB were decided by one goal. The closest game between the two teams was the 1997 C-USA semifinal match, which was decided by a shootout after the score remained tied 2-2 in double overtime. The contests have usually been high scoring matches, averaging at least two goals per game. The lowest scoring match came in 1998, the last time UC played at UAB. The Blazers won 1-0.

    THE SERIES AGAINST USF: Cincinnati has played USF seven times in the past, with UC leading the series 5-2. The two teams met last season in the first round of the C-USA Tournament. UC won that game 3-1 and went on to claim the championship title and advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

    SCOUTING USF: The Bulls (2-3-1) are 1-0-1 against C-USA teams, and are currently ranked fifth in the conference. USF began the season by splitting two games, and lost the next two before tying East Carolina on September 19. They posted their first win in conference action on September 21 when they defeated Charlotte, 3-1.

    THE LAST MEETING: Amy Simonson netted a goal 1:50 into the second half as UC advanced to the semifinals of the Conference USA Tournament with a 3-1 win over USF on Nov. 6, 2002.

    The Bearcats first goal came 16 minutes into the first half when Rachel Lieberman crossed in front of the goal, and Amy Mink sent it into the goal. The Bulls answered 45 seconds later on a corner kick of their own when Kim Martins crossed the ball and Jenny Mulvihill headed it past UC goalkeeper Tracy Hale.

    Cincinnati regained the lead 1:50 into the second half when Amy Mink slid a pass through the USF defense to Amy Simonson who scored on the breakaway. USF came within inches of tying the game with 18 minutes remaining when Michelle Buskey flicked a cross towards the UC goal, but Rachel Lieberman cleared the ball off the goal line.

    UC added a goal with 25 seconds remaining when Oliver stole the ball at the top of the penalty box and passed it into an open net, making the final score 3-1.

    THE BEARCATS IN TAMPA: UC has only played two games in Tampa, winning the first 1-0 in 1997 but losing the second 1-0 in 1999. The games in Florida are the lowest scoring of the series with only one goal in each. Traditionally games between the two schools have been high scoring with an average of five goals per game.

    STILL RANKED: With the victory over Memphis, UC ended a three game losing streak, and found itself on top of the OSCA Poll. Cincinnati was ranked No. 1 in the state of Ohio by the Ohio Soccer Coahces Association. This marks the third week UC has been ranked, moving up from third to first.
