About Southeast: Southeast heads on the road once again after returning from a trip to Tulsa and the Tulsa Adidas Classic. At the tournament, Southeast used a pair of 3-2 victories over Tulsa and Oral Roberts to claim the classic championship. Although the Otahkians allowed their first goals of the season, more importantly they kept their perfect 8-0 record intact. Heading into this week's play, they are currently one of only five schools in the country (UCLA, UNC, Princeton and Stanford are the others) to have a perfect 1.000 winning percentage on the season.

Southeast was led by freshman midfielder Marla Gianino in Tulsa, as she recorded two goals and two assists, and just missed out on being OVC Player of the Week.

The matchup with Eastern Illinois on Friday will be the first conference matchups for each team this season. Southeast has never defeated EIU in conference play, and EIU has never lost a regular season matchup in OVC play. The Panthers are led by 2000 OVC Freshman of the Year, Beth Liesen, who is currently number one in the country in goals per game (1.50).

Southeast defeated Western Illinois twice last season, thanks in part to a hat trick by Erika Todd in a 3-2 overtime win at Houck Stadium. The Westerwinds enter this weekend's play with only a 2-7 record with a game against Oakland on Saturday night.

With the road games, Southeast will put their five-game road winning streak on the line. The streak dates back to last season.
