TU Falls to Fresno State, 3-1, Tops Spartans, 1-0:
The Golden Hurricane made its annual trek to the West Coast last week and came away with a 1-1 split.

Against Fresno State, Tulsa allowed two goals in the first seven minutes of the contest before sophomore forward Marcie Ferguson (San Antonio, Texas) pulled TU to within a score when she headed in a corner kick from senior Julie Davidson (St. Charles, Mo.) at the 12:03 minute mark. However, the Bulldogs added another score in the second half and held on for a 3-1 win.

On Sunday at San Jose State, TU junior Melissa McCormick (Omaha, Neb.) found the back of the net at the 13:22 minute mark. Senior Kelly Noonan (St. Louis, Mo.) and junior Beth Taruscio (Tulsa, Okla.) each picked up an assist on the score. The Hurricane held off several Spartan rallies for a 1-0 Western Athletic Conference victory.

TU Hosts Nevada, Hawaii This Weekend:
Tulsa (7-5-1, 2-2 WAC) continues conference play this weekend with home dates against Nevada (3-9, 0-3 WAC) and Hawaii (4-8-2, 1-1-1 WAC).

On Friday, October 13, TU hosts Nevada at McAuliffe Field (6501 S. Garnett) in a first time meeting between the two teams. The contest will begin at 5:00 p.m. The Wolf Pack is in its first season of women's soccer.

Tulsa concludes the home portion of its conference schedule against the Hawaii Rainbow Wahine Sunday, Oct. 15 at 2:30 p.m. UH leads the overall series, 1-0, after capturing a 1-0 win in Honolulu last season.

Devore Puts Her Name In TU Record Book:
In spite of her freshman status, Pam Devore (Derby, Kan.) has already added her name to the list of TU's top goalkeepers. Devore notched her fifth shutout of the season against San Jose State. Her five shutouts rank fifth on the school's career shutouts chart. In addition, she has already collected 84 saves this season, which ranks fifth all-time among TU's goalkeepers. With five games remaining in the regular season, Devore needs 37 saves to break the school's single-season record of 120 set by Liz Fowler (1987-90) during the 1989 season.

Twellman Breaks into School's top-10 for Goals, Points:
In just under two seasons, Julie Twellman (Columbia, Mo.) has scored 18 goals and collected eight assists for 44 points. She ranks 10th in both categories on Tulsa's career charts. Twellman is 10 points away from Lori Shelton (1988-92), who is in ninth-place with 54 points to rank among TU's all-time scoring leaders. On Tulsa's career goals list, Twellman is one score shy of tying Shelton, who is in ninth place with 19 goals.

Player Notes:
Kelly Noonan recorded her 13th career assist against San Jose State. She is currently in seventh place among TU's all-time assists leaders and needs just one more assist to catch Paige Mayer (1994-98), who is in sixth-place with 14.

Junior Melissa McCormick (Omaha, Neb.) is within striking distance of the school's top-10 scoring leaders. With 39 career points (15g/9a) McCormick is just five points shy of Julie Twellman's 10th place mark of 44 points. With five assists this season, McCormick is just two assists shy of the school's single-season record of seven.

Julie Davidson has nine career assists and needs one more to reach 10th place among the school's career assists leaders.

After suffering a leg injury during preseason drills, junior Melanie Beaulieu (Orleans, Ontario, Canada) made her season debut last weekend against Fresno State and San Jose State. In her previous two seasons, Beaulieu had recorded five goals and two assists for 12 points in 37 games.
