    UL Soccer LAdy Cajun Soccer Still Happening ( 8 vs 1 )

    My one regret this year was not getting out to watch a single game at the new soccer complex. I actually intended to go to the last home game but long lost friend rolled through town at 1pm and by the time I got out to the soccer field the game was over.

    I did get there in time to meet Rob Polman Tuin with "Polman Tuin" being his last name. His daughter is Kala Polman-Tuin a sophomore on the 2005 squad who I expect to get a lot more playing time in the coming seasons.

    The Polman Tuin's hail from Vernon, British Columbia Canada where Rob works as a Lumber Trader.

    I just wanted to thank him and his wife for making the trek for their daughter's last home game of the season. I know not all family can make the games of their UL student athlete children and siblings, so I wish I had taken a few pictures this year, as it might have served to connect friends and family.

    Anyway it was nice to meet the Polman Tuin family, and here is to the Lady Cajuns finishing out the season on a winning note. Can they still make the Sunbelt tourney? If 1 more win does it then there is a chance.

    The next opponent FIU is 3-7-4 so I don't know but I got to believe 4-8-3 has a good chance of winning 2 of their last 3

    is Kala Polman Tuin and is Lady Cajun teammate Kerri Luyties of Spring Texas.

    Default Re: UL Soccer 2005 still happening

    The latest stop on the Hurricane Adjustment Tour involves the Louisiana Ragin' Cajun women's soccer team, which was scheduled to finish the regular season today at Florida International in Miami.

    Damage caused by Hurricane Wilma this week has forced a change in those plans.

    The Cajuns of coach Scot Wieland will now head for Mobile, Ala., to meet FIU on Sunday in the delayed season finale.

    UL's squad will then remain in Mobile to compete in the upcoming Sun Belt Conference Championships hosted by South Alabama on Nov. 2-5.

    The Cajuns (4-8-3) will either be the No. 6 seed or the No. 8 seed for the tournament, pending the outcome of the match with FIU.

    MOBILE, Ala. - The Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns women's soccer team concluded its regular season with a 2-1 loss to Florida International here Sunday at South Alabama.

    UL's lone goal came from Lindsay Webb on a penalty kick in the 70th minute.

    The loss dropped the Cajuns to 4-9-3 on the season, 2-6-1 in conference play, which tied the squad for eighth place with Arkansas State (2-6-1 Sun Belt). By virtue of a 1-0 win over ASU on Sept. 30, UL wins the head-to-head tiebreaker with the Indians and will play in the Sun Belt Tournament, facing regular season champion North Texas on Wednesday at The Cage in Mobile. The time for the match will be announced today.

    UL Soccer Lady Cajuns to Face North Texas in Sun Belt Conference Tournament

    MOBILE, Ala. - Louisiana's Lady Cajuns soccer team is set to play in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament here on Wednesday, Nov. 2 in Mobile, Ala. at The Cage on the campus of the University of South Alabama.

    The Cajuns are the No. 8 seed in the tournament and will face the top-seeded North Texas Mean Green at 10 a.m., in the quarterfinal round of the tournament.

    In the regular season, the Cajuns fell to the Mean Green 1-0 in Lafayette.

    The Cajuns missed two opportunities to score in the match as North Texas' goalie Kandice Ellis stopped the only two Cajuns shots on goal.

    Early in the match senior captain Meredith Smith headed the ball towards the goal off of a corner kick from Kristina Nadolski but Ellis was there to scoop up the ball. Then with 30 seconds remaining in the match, Nadolski pushed the ball towards up the field and launched a shot at the goal. Ellis made a fingertip stop to save the match for the Mean Green.

    UL is 0-6 against North Texas all-time. The Cajuns have managed two one-point losses against the Mean Green in the last two matches between the two schools.

    The match against North Texas will mark the first time the two teams have matched up against each other in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament.

    The Ragin' Cajuns are 0-5 in the SBC Tournament all-time. Last year, the Cajuns fell to Denver 1-0 in the first round of the tournament. In the tournament, the Cajuns have been shutout in four of the five matches they have played. In 2002, UL scored a goal in a 2-1 loss to Western Kentucky for their only goal of the SBC Tournament.
