Memphis-Christian Brothers Women's Soccer Match Time Switched To 7 p.m.
Oct. 30, 2002
Memphis, Tenn. - Kickoff for the University of Memphis women's soccer match with crosstown-rival Christian Brothers Wednesday has been moved up to a 7 p.m. start. The match will take place at Signaigo Field on the CBU campus.
The Lady Bucs are ranked second nationally in Division II and take a 17-1 overall record into the match with the Lady Tigers. Memphis is 8-8-1 and hold a 2-1 edge in the all-time series with CBU. The Lady Bucs won last year's meeting 2-1.
Junior goalkeeper Katarina Wicksell, who has allowed only two goals in her last five matches, will have the tough task of shutting down the high-powered CBU offense led by senior forward Missy Gregg. The Lady Bucs are averaging 5.5 goals per match and Gregg has 53 goals on the season. Wicksell is allowing just 1.41 goals per game this season and has made 79 saves.
The Lady Tigers will travel to New Orleans Thursday in preparation for a pivotal C-USA match with Tulane, Friday at 7 p.m. A win over the Green Wave gives Memphis a spot in the league tournament, Nov. 6-9, in Charlotte, N.C., while a loss will eliminate them from contention.
