Women’s Soccer Weekly Release
September 8, 2004

How the West Was Won: Vermont won its first regular season tournament on the road in the program’s 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 UVM’s 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 Koehnlein’s 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.
Carf’s a Keeper: Redshirt freshman Lindsey Carfagna (Moon Township, Pa.) posted her first career shutout and second straight win in UVM’s 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 UVM’s 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.
Who’s 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: Saturday’s home game versus Siena is also “Poster Day”.  The first 100 fans will receive a free UVM women’s soccer poster.  The players will be available for autographs following the game.
