Finally, the A10 scheduled them to be on the road three straight weekends, this is their first game at home since October 1st. They did well on the roadtrip, hopefully they can finish it up with two wins here and have a ton of momentum going into the A10 tournament.

well the womens soccer team won their first game of the homestand tonight against Xavier, 3-2. they were down 2-0 after the first 10 minutes and came back to win it. great game.

mens soccer tied Xavier on the road, also. they wrap up with Dayton on the road on Sunday before next weeks A10 tourny.


Dayton’s soccer team made the mistake of jogging by the wine vault during beer fest. Light heckling ensued. Go Niners.

The women’s team can get the top spot in the A-10 tournament with a win this afternoon. Panthers don’t play till 8:00 tonite so lets get some people out there for Senior Day. GO NINERS!!

Niners win 3-2 in double OT - Nikki Labuda scored the game winner. A-10 CHAMPS!


[COLOR=green][B]Congratulations to Coach Lipsitz and the soccer team![/B][/COLOR]

awesome game. first in a10 baby!

A real nail biter. The Charlotte goalie made two terrific saves in the first OT to keep the game alive. That was after Dayton scored with 7 minutes left in regulation to tie it up. The Niners scored a goal in the 2nd half that got called back (I’m not really sure why, anybody know?). Very exciting game, hopefully they can take the A10 tournament next week.

Offsides was called.

Wow! Great to hear. I was reffing at Winthrop and couldn’t make it. Great job coaches and lady Niners!!! Reg season CHAMPS!

Worthy of being highlighted here, Coach Lipsitz after the game:

[QUOTE]“Everyone has been saying that our team is a program of the future,” Lipsitz said. “I was concerned about having to tell our only senior Kelsie Ormsby, who has meant so much to this program, that she was a major part of winning championships in the years to come if we did not win it this season. So I am very glad that Kelsie will be getting a championship ring. Our league championship is also a reflection of the commitment that our entire athletic staff from athletic director Judy Rose on down has to women’s soccer and this program. Finally, with the heavy hearts that our athletic department and university have had this past week due to the death of former student-athlete Erik Walker, hopefully, winning the league championship will give our university something positive to smile about that will help us in a little way to get through these trying times.”

me and J4L almost had to beat up all the Dayton fans. let it stay at that.

Thank you to all of the fantastic women’s soccer fans this year. We end up undefeated at home and that could not have happened without you!

We will do our best to make you proud in St Louis.

[B]PHILADELPHIA, PA -[/B] Charlotte is the top seed for the 2006 Atlantic 10 Women’s Soccer Championship, to be held November 2-5 at Robert R. Herman Stadium on the campus of Saint Louis University.
The 49ers (13-4-2/8-1-0) captured their first-ever A-10 regular season title by virtue of their dramatic 3-2 double-overtime win over Dayton on Sunday afternoon on junior forward Nikki Labuda’s goal in the 107th minute. The 49ers, who earned a first-round bye, enter the 2006 Championship riding a six-match winning streak.
Defending champion Saint Louis (12-3-2/7-2-0) tied Rhode Island (11-9-0/7-2-0) for second place in the Conference but earned the No. 2 seed and first-round bye by virtue of the league’s tie-breaking procedures. The Billikens won their final five contests of the regular season and boast a mark of 8-0-1 at home. URI makes its fifth consecutive appearance in the A-10 Championship and seeks its first-ever league title. The Rams will square off against sixth-seed Dayton (8-6-3/6-3-0) in opening round play on Thursday evening at 5:00pm (EST). The Flyers are vying for their third Atlantic 10 crown in four seasons and their five Conference titles are the most of any program in league annals.

Thursday’s second opening round match features fourth-seed La Salle (9-9-1/6-2-1) against No. 5 Fordham (12-6-0/6-3-0) at 7:30pm (EST). The Explorers earned a critical 2-1 double-overtime win over George Washington on Saturday to advance to the Championship for the second time in three seasons. Fordham earned its first berth in the A-10 Championship since 2003 after winning its final two A-10 matches. The contest is a rematch of the Rams’ 2-1 double-overtime victory over the Explorers on October 15 in Philadelphia.
