PENALTY KICKS

A New Season Begins

2 After finishing the non-conference schedule 8-0 for the first time in program history, the University of Memphis women’s soccer team opens Conference USA play with matches against Houston and Rice this weekend. 2 The U of M has scored 22 goals this season coming from 11 different players. The 22 goals in the first eight matches are the most since the 2007 season when the squad had 23 goals. The 22 goals are tied for the third-most all-time through eight matches, behind the 2005 squad that scored 26 and the 2007 club. 2 Along with five clean sheets by Elise KuharPitters, the Lady Tiger defense has held opponents to five or fewer shot on goal attempts in every match this season. The U of M defense didn’t allow a goal in the first half during nonconference play and opponents have mustered just 7.88 shots per-game.

2 After a perfect 8-0 mark in the non-conference slate, Memphis opens C-USA with four-straight road games. The Lady Tigers are one of three league members (UCF and Rice) that play seven road games and four home matches in league play. Houston, Southern Miss and UAB each have five home and six road matches while Colorado College, Marshall and SMU have six home and five road matches. UTEP, Tulsa and East Carolina have seven home and four road matches. 2 Memphis opens league play on the road for the third-straight season. The Lady Tigers are 6-9-1 all-time in road openers of league play. The U of M has won six-straight road openers in conference play, outscoring opponents 12-3. Memphis is 7-7-2 all-time in the conference opener, with nine of the 16 openers at home.

MEMPHIS

TIGER WOMEN’S SOCCER 2011L

ROAD WARRIORS 2 The sign of a good team is its play on the road and the Lady Tigers have had some great success playing away from the Bluff City. In the last four plus seasons, Memphis is 29-6-3 in road games. The Lady Tigers are 14-3-3 in conference road games since the 2007 season.

SCOUTING RICE 2 The Owls open C-USA play against UAB on Friday before the match with the Lady Tigers on Sunday. Rice sits at 5-2-1 on the season with their most recent result being a 3-2 double-overtime victory over Western Kentucky. 2 Jessica Howard leads the squad with five goals on the season. As a club, Rice has 12 goals by seven different players. 2 Amy Czyz has logged most of the minutes in goal for the Owls and carries a 0.61 goalsagainst average in the eight matches played. Czyz has 16 saves and four shutouts on the season.

Inside The Series 2 Memphis and Houston meet for the 14th time on Friday. The series is deadlocked at 6-6-1 with Memphis carrying an unbeaten mark of 6-01 in the last seven meetings. The Lady Tigers earned a 1-0 victory in the C-USA Tournament semifinal last season after the two teams played to a 1-1 draw in regular season play. 2 Memphis and Rice square off for the sixth time on Sunday. The U of M carries a 3-1-1 lead in the series having earned a 1-0 victory last season. The Owls earned a 2-1 win in the last meeting in Houston.

LADY TIGERS START 8-0 2 Memphis opened the season with identical 3-1 victories over LSU and UALR at Mike Rose Soccer Complex. The Lady Tigers hit the road for a three-game road trip and earned three shutout victories. A fourth-straight shutout against rival Ole Miss put Memphis a 6-0 and a convincing 6-2 victory over Charlotte put the Lady Tigers at 7-0. Memphis would finish the non-conference slate with a 2-0 shutout of Vanderbilt to improve to 8-0-0. 2 The 8-0-0 start to the regular season is the best start in program history and the eightgame win streak is the longest in program history. The U of M is now chasing the longest unbeaten streak in program history of 11, set in 2007 and 2010. The 2007 squad had a 10-0-1 run while last season saw the Lady Tigers go 8-0-3 over 11 games.

PLAYER OF THE WEEK 2 Elise Kuhar-Pitters collected C-USA Defensive Player of the Week honors for the second time this season on Monday. She had four saves in Memphis’ 2-0 victory at Vanderbilt and collected her fifth clean sheet of 2011.

AUGUST RUSH 2 The U of M may be sad to see the calendar flip past August. In 16 seasons, Memphis is 18-5-1 all-time in the month of August and is unbeaten in the last 16 matches in the month of August dating back to the 2003 season. Since their last loss in the month of August (8/31/03-Ole Miss), Memphis has outscored its opponents 57-5.

REMEMBER SEPTEMBER 2 With all the success in August in the past several seasons, what has the U of M done in the month of September? In the last four seasons, including four games this season, Memphis is 23-11-0 in the month of September. Last season, Memphis was 4-3 in September.

CLEAN SHEET 2 In the past six matches, Memphis has held opponents to just 16 shots on goal and recorded five shutouts. In the last three seasons, Memphis has 29 shutouts and has back-to-back shutouts 10 times. The four-straight shutout streak earlier this season was the first four-game shutout streak and the 441:25 scoreless streak by opponents was the longest streak in program history. Goalkeeper Elise Kuhar-Pitters carries a program-best 527:25 scoreless streak into conference play.

BALANCED OFFENSE 2 Thus far, Memphis has scored 22 goals in eight matches, but more importantly 11 different players have scored those 22 goals. Through the end of non-conference play, seven different players have two or more goals. The Lady Tigers have 17 assists on the 22 goals and 10 different players have recorded assists. Seven different players have attempted 10 or more shots while 10 players have five or more shots. The offense ranks 18th in the NCAA statistical release, averaging 2.75 goals per game. 2 Not only is Memphis getting points from several different players, but the Lady Tigers are on a consistent streak of scoring two or more goals. The Lady Tigers have scored two or more goals in the last five matches, just the fourth time in program history a team has accomplished that feat. It’s the first such streak since the 2008 squad did it in eight-straight matches.

Around C-USA

SCOUTING HOUSTON 2 Houston enters league play with a 3-5 record to date. The Cougars started the season 0-5, but Houston has won its last three matches. 2 The Cougars have 14 goals on the season, but nine of those 14 goals came in the match against Texas Southern. Jessica Zavalza leads the club with five goals on the season and Kelsey Zamora has added three scores. 2 Cami Koski has seen the bulk of the time in net for Houston. Koski carries a 0.91 goalsagainst average and 21 saves. George Sydney has logged 223:33 minutes in goal and gathered nine saves.

RECORD BOOK REWRITE

ON A ROLL

2 Redshirt-senior goalkeeper Elise KuharPitters began her fifth season in net for the Lady Tigers on the cusp of breaking multiple goalkeeping records. Just seven matches into the season, Kuhar-Pitters owns three of the five goalkeeping records at the U of M. With her third-straight shutout at Western Kentucky on Sept. 4, Kuhar-Pitters broke Isabel Birones’ record for shutouts and victories in a career. Kuhar-Pitters has 28 career shutouts and 43 victories and program-best 0.86 goals-against average. Kuhar-Pitters is also in the top-five in saves and minutes played.

2 Already on a program-best 8-0 start to the season, the 2011 squad will look to extend a winning streak to nine games for the first time in program history. Last season, Memphis put together four, three-game win streaks. Since head coach Brooks Monaghan took over the program in 2000, Memphis has 35 win streaks of two or more games. Currently, the U of M is riding the first eight-game win streak in program history. Times

DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS 2 Since the 2007 season, the Lady Tiger defense has helped the U of M to a 67-4-5 record when opponents score one or fewer goals. In that same span, Memphis has 49 shutouts. 2 This season, the Memphis defense has allowed just 22 shots on goal. By comparison, opponents have 63 total shots against the U of M this season, but Memphis has 63 shots on goal in eight matches. Elise Kuhar-Pitters ranks fifth nationally with a 0.26 goals-against average. As a team, Memphis ranks 15th in the nation with a 0.50 GAA.

BEST OFFENSE IS A GOOD DEFENSE 2 As the saying goes, the best offense is a good defense, which has certainly been a case for the U of M this season. Among 13 players that have played in the back this season, seven players have accounted for 15 of Memphis’ 61 points. Five goals and five assists have been posted by defensive players on the year.

HEAD COACH BROOKS MONAGHAN 2 Since taking over the program in 2000, head coach Brooks Monaghan has compiled a record of 133-85-14 in 11 seasons. Monaghan has helped the program claim seven, 11-plus win seasons during his tenure. Below is a look at the milestone victories for Coach Monaghan. Win #

2 Last Thursday’s match at Vanderbilt began a five-game road swing for the Lady Tigers. The five-game road trip is the longest since the 2002 season in which the U of M played sevenstraight matches on the road. In 14 road trips that lasted three or more games, Memphis has compiled a record of 23-22-3 (4-0 in 2011). Scoring is very close in the road trip matches at 76-75 in favor of Memphis, but the U of M has equaled or bettered their opponent scoring in the last seven road trips. Memphis went 3-0 on its first road trip of 2011, posting three shutouts.
