Womenıs Soccer Weekly Release
September 8, 2004
 
How the West Was Won: Vermont won its first regular season tournament on the
road in the programıs history with a 2-0 win over Northern Colorado and a
1-1 double-overtime tie at Wyoming. The Catamounts posted the best record of
the four teams at the Brown and Gold Shootout in Laramie, Wyoming. It was
UVMıs first trip to the state of Wyoming.
 
All-Tourney: Junior midfielder Jamie Koehnlein (Honeoye, N.Y.) was named the
Brown and Gold Shootout MVP.  It was Koehnleinıs second straight
all-tournament team selection.  She also earned a spot on the Banknorth
All-Tournament team, a tournament hosted by Vermont to open the season.
Joining Koehnlein on the Brown and Gold All-Tournament team were defender
Steph Mead (Victor, N.Y.), senior Leah Felis (Stowe, Vt.) and goalkeeper
Lindsay Carfagna (Moon Township, Pa.).
 
Quick Cats: The Catamounts have scored in the opening 10 minutes in three of
the four matches this season.  UVM scored at the 9:40 and 9:29 marks versus
Northern Colorado and Wyoming, respectively.
 
Carfıs a Keeper: Redshirt freshman Lindsey Carfagna (Moon Township, Pa.)
posted her first career shutout and second straight win in UVMıs 2-0
blanking of Northern Colorado.  She made two saves to earn the shutout and
followed that up with a career-high nine stops in the 1-1 draw versus
Wyoming.
 
D-fense: The Vermont defense has allowed just four goals in four games.  The
defensive unit of Steph Mead (Victor, N.Y.), Kiryn Lanning (King Ferry,
N.Y.), Laura Carollo (Milwaukee, Wisc.) and Susan Sullivan (Green Harbor,
Mass.) have been solid for the Catamounts.
 
Sister Act: The Felis sisters are just the fifth set of siblings to play on
the same team in the history of the program.  In UVMıs victory over Northern
Colorado, Victoria and Leah were in the same starting lineup.  Victoria, a
freshman, earned her first career start at forward, while Leah, a senior,
started in the midfield.
 
Whoıs Next: Vermont returns to Centennial Field to host Siena at 1:00pm on
Saturday, September 11.  The Saints enter the match with a record of 1-2-0.
Siena dropped a 1-0 decision at Holy Cross in its last contest.
 
Poster Day: Saturdayıs home game versus Siena is also ³Poster Day².  The
first 100 fans will receive a free UVM womenıs soccer poster.  The players
will be available for autographs following the game.
