Southeast (9-1, 1-0) vs. Tennessee Tech (9-3, 2-0)
October 13, 2001, 7:00 p.m.
Houck Stadium (10,000)
All-Time Series: Tech leads 3-0.

About Southeast: Last week was the best of times and the worst of times for the Southeast Otahkian soccer team. On Friday, Southeast defeated Eastern Illinois for the first time ever in three attempts and took an early lead in the OVC race. However, on Sunday Western Illinois upset the Otahkians and blimished what had been a perfect 9-0 start.

The 1-0 victory over EIU was only the second regular season conference game the Panthers had lost in OVC history and the first regular season game at their home field. The win moved the Otahkians record to 9-0 which was both the best start and most consecutive wins in school history. Goalkeeper Beth Guccione made a season-high 10 saves and the Otahkian defense shutdown EIU's Beth Liesen, who entered the week #1 in the country in goals per game.

The loss to WIU ended Southeast's six game road winning streak, its longest in school history.

This weekend's Tennesee Tech matchup will go a long way in determining the OVC Regular Season Champion. A Southeast victory would put them in the driver seat and allow them to control their own destiny, which is important because the league champion hosts the OVC Tournament.

Tech brings a 2-0 league record into the contest, with wins over Tennessee-Martin and Morehead State. They are led by sophomore Kristen Stegeman who has seven goals on the season, who ranks second in the OVC in goals/game, freshman Tania Desmarais, third in the OVC in goals/game, and freshman Robyn Vince who is third in the OVC in points/game. Tech really moved up in these statistical categories after an 7-0 waxing of Morehead State last week.

An Added Game: Southeast added a game to its schedule this week to make up for the games cancelled due to the events of September 11. Southeast will have a rematch with Creighton on October 26 at Sportport in St. Louis, Mo. Game time is at 7:00 p.m. It will be a neutral site game for each team.
