Tulsa Falls to Eastern Illinois, Ties Bradley:
TU began a four-game homestand last week against Eastern Illinois and Bradley. Against Eastern Illinois, the Panthers scored a first half goal and led for most of the way before freshman Stephen Warwick (Morpeth, England) answered for Tulsa at the 62:37 minute mark. EIU added another goal minutes later, but Warwick again came through for Tulsa with his second goal of the night. But with a little over 10 minutes remaining in the contest, the Panthers kicked in the game-winner for a 3-2 win.

On Sunday against Bradley, the Braves struck first in the first half and led 1-0 at intermission. Early in the second period, TU senior Robbie Aristodemo (Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada) converted a penalty kick into a Tulsa score and knotted the game at 1-1. But neither team could score in regulation or the two overtime periods and settled for a 1-1 tie.

Tulsa to Play its First Games at the Donna J. Hardesty Sports Complex this Weekend:
This weekend, Tulsa (7-5-1, 2-3-1 MVC) will play its first-ever soccer match at the Donna J. Hardesty Sports Complex (8th and Delaware) when the Hurricane hosts its final two home games of the season against Western Kentucky (5-9, 3-3 MVC) and Evansville (3-7, 2-4 MVC).

Tulsa hosts Western Kentucky on Friday, October 20 at 7:35 p.m. The match marks just the second meeting between the two schools. TU leads the overall series, 1-0, after claiming a 2-0 victory during the 1996 campaign.

On Sunday, October 22, Tulsa renews its rivalry with Evansville at 2:35 p.m. The Purple Aces own a 6-1 advantage over Tulsa in the all-time series which dates back to 1983.

TU Foursome to Play Final Home Game on Sunday:
Sunday's game against Evansville marks the final home game for TU's four seniors-- Robbie Aristodemo, Eric Dominguez (Richmond, Texas), Shawn McCullough (Shawnee, Kan.) and Kyle Smith (Seabrook, Texas).

Aristodemo ranks sixth among TU's all-time assists leaders with 20. A three-time Western Athletic Conference first-team selection, Aristodemo has career numbers of 18 goals and 20 assists for 56 points. He was the 1996 WAC Freshman of the Year. Aristodemo has started 65 of 66 career games played.

Dominguez, a 1999 all-WAC first team selection, is one of Tulsa's all-time scoring leaders. He ranks 10th for goals scored (24) and points (59). Dominguez currently leads the Hurricane in scoring and also led the team in that same category in 1998. He has started 67 of 70 games played.

McCullough, has started 61 of 70 career games at midfield and has career numbers of seven goals and eight assists for 22 points.

Smith has played in 57 games with 17 starting assignments. He has 10 goals and seven assists for 27 points. Smith recorded his first career hat trick last season against TCU in Fort Worth, Texas.

Player Notes:
With 20 career assists, Robbie Aristodemo is tied for sixth-place with David Gordon (1989-92) among the school's career assists leaders. Aristodemo needs just one more to rank among the school's top-5 assists leaders. One spot ahead of him is former Hurricane standout Kevin King (1988-91) with 21 assists.

Freshman Stephen Warwick continues to provide instant offense for Tulsa. He scored two goals in a span of seven minutes against Eastern Illinois. For the season, Warwick is second on the team in goals scored and points with six goals and three assists for 15 points. Four of his six goals have been scored during Missouri Valley Conference play.

Team Notes:
TU's 1-1 tie with Bradley marked the first time since the 1998 season that TU tied an opponent . . . the last time was also a 1-1 final at SMU . . . Tulsa's last MVC match that resulted in a tied outcome was at Creighton (0-0) in 1995.
