2011 Season Preview
The steady rise of Armstrong Atlantic State University women’s soccer in its six years of existence to both regional and national prominence culminated in more firsts during the 2010 season as the Pirates captured their first Peach Belt Conference regular season title, their first NCAA postseason home win as well as its first berth in the NCAA Southeast Region championship match. Much could be expected from the Pirates again in 2011 as Armstrong returns a staggering 20 players from last season’s squad that went 14-4-2 and finished the season ranked No. 11 in the NSCAA’s Division II Top 25 coaches’ poll. Add to that total seven talented newcomers and it’s readily apparent why head coach Eric Faulconer is excited for the upcoming season. In 2010, the Pirates had a balanced scoring attack, getting five or more goals from seven different players. Junior forward Kristina Pascutti (5-4, Jr., Lilburn, Ga.) tied for the team lead with seven goals and began the year with goals in four straight matches providing the Pirates’ most consistent scoring presence. Senior forward Erin Holt (5-5, Sr., Marietta, Ga.) tallied four goals and six assists in 20 matches last season while junior forward Emily Cattanach (5-6, Jr., Fort Myers, Fla.) notched five goals, including the game-winner in the 81st minute in the Pirates’ 2-1 win over Senior forward/midfielder Erin O’Rourke is UNC Pembroke on Oct. sixth all-time in Armstrong soccer history in 23. assists with 13 and has played in the 10th Senior Erin most matches with 61. O’Rourke (5-9, Sr., Berkeley Lake, Ga.) scored once but delivered a team hightying six assists and is the Pirates’ active career assist leader heading into 2011. Junior Danielle Fey (5-6, Jr., Woodstock, Ga.) scored six goals, including a team-high three game-winning goals in 2010, while sophomore Jordan Otto (5-5, Soph., Savannah, Ga.) was a pleasant surprise as a true freshman, tallying five goals and five assists last season. After a year away from the game, senior forward Daviana Garcia (5-10, Sr., Alpharetta, Ga.) returns to the Pirates in 2011 and will see action, as will a pair of freshmen - Torie Scalera (5-6, Fr., Dacula, Ga.) and Casey Dixon (6-1, Fr., Savannah, Ga.) - and sophomore returnee Nettie Perkins (53, Soph., Fayetteville, Ga.). The midfield could be the strongest that head coach Eric Faulconer has had in his six years at Armstrong - it will definitely be the most competitive. All-Conference honorees Morgan Mitchell (5-9, Jr., Lilburn, Ga.) and Nadima Skeff (58, Jr., Brasilia, Brazil) lead the returnees as Mitchell tallied five goals and three assists, including the pivotal game-winner in the 79th minute in the Pirates’ 1-0 NCAA postseason win over UNC Pembroke on Nov. 14. Skeff, meanwhile, led the
Pirates in points with 18, notching seven goals and four assists in her debut season at Armstrong. The third All-Conference midfielder returning for the Pirates, Courtney Cawley (5-7, Jr., Savannah, Ga.) also had an outstanding debut season after transferring from Utah State. Sophomore Andye Dawson (5-5, Soph., Senoia, Ga.) scored twice and added three assists in her first campaign as a Pirate in 2010. Local product Mary Margaret Davis (5-1, Fr., Savannah, Ga.) comes to the Pirates after being named the 2010 Savannah Morning News soccer Player of the Year at St. Vincent’s Academy, while fellow freshman Lauren Hoover (5-4, Fr., Lawrenceville, Ga.) excelled at both Collins Hill HS and for AFU ‘93 Elite. Junior Madison Reed (5-3, Jr., Cartersville, Ga.) must overcome preseason injuries in order to compete for playing time. The Pirates’ back line helped Armstrong set a school record for fewest goals given up in a season last year and three key players return for Armstrong on defense - honorable mention Daktronics All-America senior Kelli Bahr (5-10, Sr., Middleton, Wisc.) as well as sophomore Stephanie James (5-5, Soph., Marietta, Ga.) and junior Amber Raney (5-6, Jr., Marietta, Ga.). James started all 20 matches as a true freshman in 2010 and Raney battled injuries as a sophomore but still saw action in 17 matches. Junior midfielder Nadima Skeff earned Sophomore Taylor Schultz (52010 All-PBC honors and led the Pirates in points (18) in her first season 6, Soph., Kennesaw, Ga.) also for Armstrong. returns for the Pirates, as does junior Brooke Lamberth (5-7, Jr., Brooks, Ga.). Redshirt senior Kyndal Schaaf (5-8, Sr., Columbus, Ga.) will also be in the mix after missing the 2010 season. Expectations are high for a pair of newcomers in the back - sophomore Ole Miss transfer A’shanae Monroe (5-5, Soph., McDonough, Ga.) and freshman Brianne Matarazzo (5-8, Fr., Fort Myers, Fla.), while forwards Casey Dixon and Nettie Perkins could also see time in the back. Junior Meghan Mayville (5-8, Jr., Savannah, Ga.) takes over the reins of four-year starter Tracey Mitchell in goal and the local product has given up just four goals in 577 minutes of action in two seasons for a sparkling 0.62 GAA. Maggie Carson (5-6, Fr., Aurora, Ill.) is a former Illinois State ODP player who will push Mayville for time as a true freshman. Armstrong is ranked No. 11 in the NSCAA’s Preseason Top 25 coaches’ poll and the Pirates have been picked to finish first in a preseason poll of the league’s coaches. Three Pirates - senior Kelli Bahr and juniors Morgan Mitchell and Kristina Pascutti - earned preseason All-PBC honors from the coaches. The Pirates open the 2011 season on September 2, taking on Lynn University at 10:00 a.m. in Lakeland, Fla. Armstrong’s nonconference schedule includes region foes Tusculum, Wingate and Catawba as well as perennial powers Tampa, Florida Southern and Rollins from the Sunshine State Conference.
