CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO. (October 21, 2000) - Southeast Missouri State recorded its seventh shutout of the season by blanking Middle Tennessee 2-0 in Houck Stadium on Saturday night.

In a game that was defined by physical plays and fouls, Southeast (9-5-1) made the most of its chances in scoring two goals. The Otahkians struck first when Erika Todd (Fr., Granite City, Ill.) was fouled in the box to set up Southeast's first penalty kick of the season. Todd pushed the kick past Lady Raider goalie Jennifer Robb to put Southeast up 1-0 in the 51st minute.

Southeast played good defense the rest of the half and found another scoring opportunity in the 76th minute. Off a free kick, Valerie Henderson (Fr., Florissant, Mo.) placed the ball perfectly on the right side for Karen Schmitt (Fr., Washington, Mo.) who attacked the goal and put the game out of reach at 2-0.

Southeast goalie Tami Hebert (Sr., O'Fallon, Mo.) recorded her OVC leading seventh shutout of the season by saving nine Middle Tennessee stops and making several other top defensive plays.

The physicality of the game was shown in the 44 total fouls whistled during the game, 22 for each squad.

Middle Tennessee (6-9) had previously defeated two OVC schools (Eastern Illinois and Murray State) that had handed Southeast shutout losses this season.

Southeast will conclude the regular season on Monday at 7:00 p.m. in Houck Stadium versus Lipscomb University. Then the Otahkians will start OVC Tournament play next weekend.
