  • Full Release

    UC, 3-6-1, will return home on Friday to host Wisconsin-Milwaukee before traveling to Rochester, Michigan on Sunday to take on Oakland. The Bearcats will take a week off of Conference USA action following two consecutive C-USA losses.

    OFF TO A ROCKY START: This is the first time in 10 years that the Bearcats have lost more than five games in the first ten games of the season. UC has had at least a .500 record in the first 10 games since 1999. The last year the Bearcats posted a losing record this far into the season was in 1998 when Cincinnati began the season 3-4-1.They finished 10-10-1 that season, and lost in the semifinals of the conference tournament to Charlotte 2-1.

    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. Cincinnatiís all time home conference record is 30-6-3, while the road record is 26-9-4. This season, the Bearcats have played four games away from home, recording a tie against Miami (2-2) and lossrd against Bowling Green (1-0), UAB (2-0) and USF (2-0).

    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. 28: UC dropped its second straight conference match losing 2-0 to USF on the road.

    USF scored their first goal at the 37:44 minute mark when Laura Tucker blasted a shot past Sherry Slye (Cincinnati, Ohio/Roger Bacon) from the top of the box. The second goal came with 30 seconds remaining in the first half when Katie Reed capitalized on a corner kick.

    The Bearcats did not allow the Bulls to score in the second half despite facing eight shots. Slye posted nine total shots in the game, six coming in the second half. She totaled 20 for the weekend.

    SEPT 27: The Bearcats fell to UAB 2-0.
    The Blazers got off to a quick start, denting the score board just over six minutes into the first half. Tara Kidwell sent a long pass to Jill Knottek who blasted it in from 20 yards out. The second goal came 22 minutes later. Kidwell crossed to Liz Bosscher who blasted it past Cincinnati goalkeeper Sherry Slye.
    Cincinnatiís defense held the Blazers at two for the rest of the game. Slye posted 11 total saves, with five coming in the second half.

    THE SERIES AGAINST WIS.-MILWAUKEE: Cincinnati and Wis.-Milwaukee have met five times in the past, with Cincinnati leading the all time series 4-1. The last meeting between the two schools was in 2002 in Milwaukee, with the Bearcats downing the Panthers 2-1. That game marked the first contest since 1992.

    SCOUTING WIS.-MILWAUKEE: The Panthers (3-5-1) got off to a rough start, losing their first three games before posting a tie with Illiniois State on Sept. 7. Milwaukee lost its next two before recording its first win over Butler on Sept. 21. The Panthers are currently enjoying a three game win streak, downing Marquette last Friday, and Wright State on Sunday both in overtime.

    Ginny Graczyk leads the Panthers with one goal, four assists and six points. Taylor Powell is second on the team with two goals and one assist.

    THE LAST MEETING: Behind first half goals from Amy Simonson and Rachel Lieberman (Cincinnati, Ohio/Walnut Hills), UC posted a 2-1 win over Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Sept. 13, 2002.

    The Bearcats jumped to a 1-0 advantage on Liebermanís first goal of the when she took advantage of a Panther turnover and blasted a shot from 25 yards out.
    Simonson scored the second mark nine minutes later when she headed a shot past the Panther keeper from 10 yards out.

    Cincinnatiís bid for a shutout came up just short as the Panthers cut the deficit to one with under five minutes remaining. Evann Franklin headed a pass from Maggie Suminski and Carrie Durand past Bearcat keeper Tracy Hale (Westerville, Ohio/Westerville South).

    Statistically, the match was very evenly contested as each team recorded 12 shots. UWM held a 6-3 edge on corner kicks.

    GAMES IN CINCINNATI: Of the five games UC has played against Wis.-Milwaukee, all but two have been played in Cincinnati, with the Bearcats remaining undefeated at home. The last three contests have ended in a 2-1 decision, with UC taking two of them.
    after the score remained tied 2-2 in double overtime.

    THE SERIES AGAINST OAKLAND: Cincinnati and Oakland have met only two times in the past, with Cincinnati leading the series 2-0. The first meeting between the two schools took place in the first round of the 2001 NCAA tournament, on neutral territory. Cincinnati advanced to the second round, defeating the Grizzlies 3-2. Last season UC hosted Oakland at Meyers Field, and won 1-0. This will be the first game the Bearcats have played on Grizzly turf.

    SCOUTING OAKLAND: The Grizzlies (5-3-1) began the season with a win over Illinios, and then tied Southeast Missouri State 0-0, and beat Michigan before posting losses to Marquette (2-0) Loyola Marymont (1-0) and UCLA (6-2). Oakland is currently enjoying a three-game win streak, including its first home win over Southern Utah. The Grizzlies travel to Western Illinois on Friday, before hosting the Bearcats on Sunday.

    Shelly Piccirillo leads the Grizzlies with five goals on the season. She also have recorded 16 shots, all but five of which have been on target.

    Marianne Samdal is second on the team with two goals, two assists, and six points.

    THE LAST MEETING: Tianna Oliver netted a goal in the 53rd minute to help UC extend its unbeaten streak to six games with a 1-0 victory over Oakland on October 13, 2002. The shutout also extended the Bearcats' streak of consecutive shutouts to four.

    The Bearcats dominated the second half, outshooting Oakland 9-1. In the 53rd minute, Heather Herweh slid a pass through the Oakland defense to Oliver who gathered the ball and shot it just past OU goalkeeper Sarah Buckland for the game's only goal.
    Goalkeeper Tracy Hale (Westerville, Ohio/ Westerville, South) made two saves to earn her sixth shutout of the season. She received a lot of help from her defense which held the Grizzlies to five shots in the match.

    BEARCATS IN C-USA: The Bearcats are in a tight race with Marquette for the all-time winningest team in Conference USA history honor. Marquette has a slim lead over Cincinnati, posting an all time record of 58-17-5 in conference action, while Cincinnati holds an all time record of 56-17-7. Charlotte is a close third with an all-time record of 52-17-10.
