Frostburg 3, Salisbury 0.

There may not have been a better scoreline for us this year than this one. With so much at stake, our players really played a tough but smart game at Salisbury and got the result we needed. We have now earned a bye in the CAC Tournament and will host the winner of St. Mary's vs Mary Washington on Tuesday, Nov. 2nd here at FSU at 5pm. Here is the schedule:

Game 1: #5 Salisbury 1, York 0.
Game 2: #3 St. Mary's 3, #6 Mary Washington 1.

Senior Day 2010!

This Saturday, before our game at Noon, we celebrated the careers of 5 very special players.  Our 5 Seniors have been fantastic athletes, students, leaders, and ambassadors of FSU during their time here at Frostburg State.  All of them have played important roles in the growth of our program and been high-impact players in our lineup over the course of their careers. In a wonderful team effort, we defeated St. Mary's 5-0 on Senior Day but our Seniors stole the show.  Lauren Russell scored 3 with 2 assists from Kierstin Stevenson and Shonna Ferree, Taylor Jenkins, and Heather Fleishell did the defensive work to earn the shut out.

a conference "race"

Some of our biggest games of the year await us over the next 2 weeks. We'll finish the regular season by playing both of the conference teams currently in a 3-way tie with us for the CAC regular season title and renew our traditional rivalry with Salisbury. The top 2 teams at the end of the regular season earn first round byes in the CAC tournament and a home game in the semifinal - a huge advantage. We are looking forward to the games and are hopeful we can make the end of season drama play out in our favor...

attractive vs effective soccer

A classic argument in the sport of soccer and a great example was witnessed on Saturday in our game with York.   It was clear that our opponent's primary advantage in the game was physical energy and force and that was enough to out score us on our home field.  It's disappointing that we would allow 2 goals at home with a great crowd on such a beautiful day for soccer.  This result will make achieving our team goals this year much more difficult but I'm sure our players will accept that challenge and respond in the coming weeks...
