Saves and Near Misses!

We hope a classic 0-0 tie with Stevenson on Saturday here at FSU is not the last time we play the Mustangs before they depart our conference next year.  The game saw chances in front of both goals but good goalkeeping and alert defending kept the game scoreless.  Our YouTube channel to the right has a clip of our best chance to score and a couple saves from our keeper Michelle Buckmaster.  We have allowed only 3 goals in 9 games this season and Buckmaster was named the FSU Athlete of the Week as she earned us 2 shutouts and now has a .34 Goals Against Average on the year. We've had a fantastic defensive record against some very good teams but the big games keep coming this week as we play on the road against a good Gettysburg team before visiting St. Mary's in Southern Maryland on the weekend.

A Great Start to Conference Play

A massive home win on Sunday in our first CAC game against Mary Washington gives us a great start in the conference race.  We had to recover from a tough home loss to a good Carnegie Mellon team on Thursday and the players certainly responded.   Erin Proctor kept a deep corner alive in the box and Chelsea Paskowski headed home the game winner.  Our defense held up in the end for another hard-earned shut out on the year. 

As a result of our week and the 6-1 start to our season, we've moved up in the NSCAA Regional Rankings to #7.  To see all the rankings, click the link below and scroll down to the most recent rankings for Division III.  We are in the South Atlantic Region.

Player and Goal of the Week

FSU sophomore Adria Graham was named both the FSU and Capital Athletic Conference Player of the Week! She scored 4 times last week including both goals in a 2-1 win over Capital on Saturday.  Her first goal on Saturday, scored in the opening minute of the game, is shown on our YouTube Channel on the right of this page.  Check the FrostburgSports.com website on Tuesday afternoon for a YouTube interview with Adria.

The Hard Work Does Pay Off

Scheduling 3 games in 4 days is not something we would typically try to do but when we had an opportunity to host a tournament here at FSU, we took it.  Our players proved this week that their hard work in preseason and on strength and conditioning over the last year has really paid off.  We were able to defeat 2 conference champions from last year and a good Ohio team in Capital to remain undefeated.  We've only allowed 2 goals going 5-0 to start our season and earned a regional ranking in the latest NSCAA Poll.  We've won each of our games in a different way and our key players are in good form.  There is a very good chemistry building in our team but every week presents a new challenge.  A talented Carnegie Mellon side will visit us on Thursday before we begin our conference schedule hosting Mary Washington on Sunday.

A Great Opening Weekend

2 very different games but 2 good results to start our season. After a 5-0 win at home with 5 different players scoring on Thursday, we had to go to overtime to defeat E. Mennonite 1-0 on Friday. After dominating the 2nd half, it took a terrific pass in the first overtime from Adria Graham to set Dorie Gedridge free down the right flank to finish a nice breakaway goal. After the Holiday break, we'll play 3 games at home in 4 days starting Wednesday at 7pm.
