Tulsa Splits First Games at Hardesty Complex:
Last weekend the Golden Hurricane played its first games at its new on-campus soccer facility, the Donna J. Hardesty Sports Complex.

In the inaugural game against Western Kentucky, Tulsa fell behind 2-0 early in the game and managed its only score of the game in the second half when junior Brent Bayouth (Sapulpa, Okla.) tallied his first collegiate goal off a pass from freshman Stephen Warwick (Morpeth, England). However, TU failed to find the net again and fell 2-1 to the Hilltoppers.

Against Evansville, Tulsa scored five straight goals, including three in the first half, to top the Purple Aces, 5-1, and win its first-ever game on its new field. Senior Eric Dominguez (Richmond, Texas) scored the game's first goal. Brent Bayouth came off the bench and gave TU a 3-0 lead with back-to-back scores in just over one minute. Redshirt freshman Matt Yeager (Rockwall, Texas) nailed his first collegiate goal in the second half and senior Robbie Aristodemo (Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada) closed out the scoring barrage on a penalty kick. Junior Chris Spears (Tulsa, Okla.) earned two assists.

TU Invades Music City, U.S.A., To Battle Belmont, Vanderbilt In First-Time Meetings:
Tulsa (8-6-1, 3-4-1 MVC) continues Missouri Valley Conference play this weekend in Nashville, Tennessee, with first-time meetings against Belmont (1-14, 0-8 MVC) and Vanderbilt (7-9, 4-4 MVC).

TU plays its first game in the Music City at Belmont on Friday, October 27 at 7:00 p.m. On Sunday, October 29, the Golden Hurricane travels across Nashville to the campus of Vanderbilt University to take on the Commodores at 1:00 p.m.

Bayouth Has Career Weekend:
Junior Brent Bayouth had the best two games of his career last weekend. After coming off the bench in both games against Western Kentucky and Evansville, he responded with three goals. He tallied his first career score against Western Kentucky and then topped that outing with a two-goal performance vs. Evansville.

Aristodemo Reaches Fifth Place Among TU's Career Assists Leaders:
With a one goal and one assist performance against Evansville, Robbie Aristodemo moved into a two-way tie with Kevin King (1988-91) for fifth place on the school's career assists list, each with 21. Aristodemo also moved into 11th place on the school's career scoring list with 59 points. He is just two points behind Eric Dominguez.

TU Seniors Make the Most of "Senior Day":
TU's four seniors played their final home game last Sunday against Evansville. Although only three of the seniors saw action, (Kyle Smith was forced to sit out because of the red card he received against Western Kentucky) all three reached the scoring column. Eric Dominguez scored a goal, while Robbie Aristodemo scored one goal and earned one assist. Shawn McCullough (Shawnee, Kan.) also collected an assist.

Player Notes:
Robbie Aristodemo is a perfect 3-of-3 on penalty kicks this season, including 2-of-2 in MVC play.

With his two assists against Evansville, Chris Spears upped his season assist mark to a team-best five.

This week, Robbie Aristodemo will be one of several student-athletes from around the nation featured on the College Soccer Online web page. Aristodemo's story can be accessed via the internet at www.collegesoccer.com.

Eric Dominguez is just one point shy of tying David Gordon (1989-92) for ninth place on TU's career scoring chart with 62 points. Dominguez also needs just one more goal to tie Perry Senko (1981-84) on the school's list for goals scored.

Team Notes:
TU is ranked 10th in this week's Midwest Region rankings . . . the Hurricane has outshot its opponents, 288-168, this season and has scored four or more goals in three games this year.
