Scouting Weber State
Midfielder Roxanne Tebbs and goalkeeper Rebecca Ritchie were recently named Big Sky Offensive and Defensive Player's of the Week following the Wildcats 1-0 upset of nationally ranked Utah in Salt Lake City.
Overall, Weber State is 1-0-0 in neutral site games, having netted seven goals in 2009. Tebbs and Jessie Bradley lead the squad in goals scored on the year with two apiece.
The Crimson Tide, who have defeated South Alabama and Jacksonville State this fall, have been blanked in two of their five matches, including a 3-0 setback at Samford.
Alabama, who opens the tournament against host school Texas Tech on Friday, is led on offense by Victoria Frederick. Frederick has scored three goals this fall, while also dishing out two assists. Between the posts, Justine Bernier has had a solid sophomore season in which she has saved 15 shot attempts.
In its last outing, the Frogs netted two first half goals, but it wasn't enough as they dropped a 3-2 decision to Denver last Sunday afternoon at the Colorado College Invitational. In a back-and-fourth contest, TCU held a 7-4 advantage in corner kicks, while totaling 12 shot attempts. On offense, Jordan Calhoun led the Horned Frog attack, connecting on four shot attempts, including two on goal. Kelsey Walters saved three shots last Sunday, while Denver, who is receiving votes in the national poll, stopped four.
Calhoun and senior Lizzy Karoly lead the Purple and White on offense this fall, having netted seven of the Frogs 13 goals on the year.
