Oct. 16, 2000


The UAB women's soccer team concludes its 2000 home schedule Tuesday when they take on Vanderbilt in a 7 p.m. match at West Campus Field.

The Blazers (3-10-2) have captured two of their last three matches including a 3-1 Conference USA victory Sunday against Louisville. UAB takes on a Vandy squad that is 7-7-0 this year and fresh off a 2-1 Southeastern Conference road win at Georgia Sunday.

For UAB, junior Denise Peters (Jacksonville, Ala.) and freshman Jill Knottek (Midland, Texas) pace the Blazer scoring attack this season with four goals each. Junior Bridget Winston (Dallas, Texas) holds the team lead in assists with three, while senior Katja Lerew (Wichita Falls, Texas) has two.

The match will be the final home contest for six UAB seniors including Lerew, along with Jen Braly (Denver, Colo.), Lisa Davies (New Glasgow, Nova Scotia), Kerri Sparks (Birmingham, Ala.), Christene Tran (Mesquite, Texas) and Jenny Woodward (Dallas, Texas).

The Commodores will look to counter with their top two scorers, Michelle Bruntlett and Jen Talavera, who each have collected four goal this season.

Along with being senior night at West Campus Field, the Vandy match also is High School Night. The loudest group of students from one high school will receive free pizzas during the game.
