    UL Soccer Cajuns Look To Stay Undefeated Against Coastal Carolina

    Louisiana opens their 2003 home schedule on September 7 against Southern Miss at 1 p.m.

    LOUISIANA La. - Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns women's soccer team will look to remain undefeated early on in the 2003 season when they take on Coastal Carolina Sunday at 11 a.m. here on the final day of the Tiger Classics at the LSU Soccer Complex.

    On Friday, UL (1-0) crushed Jackson State 10-0 in the first match on the tournament setting the school record for goals and recording the program's first-ever season-opening win.

    Lafayette natives Ainsley Breaux and Ashley Delahoussaye each scored two goals in the contest. A total of eight Cajuns contributed goals in the win.

    In the night cap of Friday's action, Coastal Carolina (0-1) dropped a 2-1 decision to host-LSU, losing the match on a goal in the 89th minute.

    Louisiana and CCU will be meeting for the first time.

    The Chanticleers were 8-6-4 last season - posting the first winning season in program history. CCU returns nine starters from that squad and a total of 18 lettermen.

    Following Sunday's match, the Cajuns will visit Nicholls State on Wednesday, Sept. 3 for a 4 p.m. match before opening the 2003 home slate on Sunday, Sept. 7 at 1 p.m. against Southern Mississippi.

    Chanticleers slip past Louisiana on a goal in 36th minute

    BATON ROUGE - Coastal Carolina's Laura Weiler scored the breakthrough goal in the 36th minute and goalkeeper Candice Doten made it stand as Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns women's soccer team fell inches short in its attempt for a 2-0 start to the season, dropping a 1-0 decision to CCU in each team's finale here Sunday morning at the LSU Tiger Classic.

    The two teams played scoreless until Weiler's goal at the 36:56 mark of the first half - a score which proved to be the match-winning goal.

    After receiving a pass from midfield she dribbled around Cajuns defender Jessica Wallace inside the box and beat Liza Preseault, who was out of position attempting to cover for Wallace, for an open-net, tap-in goal.

    "We got caught flat on our end of the field," said Louisiana coach Dave Poggi. "Liza (Preseault) came off her line quickly to cover for Jessica (Wallace) and (Laura) Weiler basically pushed it around Liza for an open-net goal."

    The Cajuns could muster just three shots on goal with Lindsay Webb providing two of them. Louisiana's lack of opportunities was a direct result of the Cajuns playing against the flow of the match for much of the opening half.

    "The second half was an even one," Poggi said. "There was a span of about 20 minutes where we put a lot of pressure on them, keeping the ball on their side of the field.

    "But it was that final pass or touch where they came up big defensively or we just ran out of gas and didn't have anything to show for how much pressure we were putting on them."

    Louisiana also failed to cash in on six corner kick opportunities - including four in the second frame.

    The Cajuns had a late chance to tie the match, but Rachel Rozelle's attempt was stopped by Doten to preserve the clean sheet.

    "Both teams fought hard and it was a clean match," Poggi added. "It was a good test for us this early in the season. These are the kinds of matches which make you better."

    True freshmen Melissa Barger and Lauren Schwindt were the Cajuns representatives on the all-tournament team.

    Louisiana completed the tournament with a 1-1 record and a third-place finish.

    The Cajuns will now turn their attention to a match at Nicholls State (0-2) on Wednesday in Thibodaux at 4 p.m. The Colonels dropped a 2-1 overtime decision to Southern Mississippi Friday and fell 3-0 to Tulane Sunday at the Tulane Invitational.
