WOMEN'S NEWS ... This weekend's most intriguing matchup of Top 25 teams takes place Friday in Portland, where the No. 3 Pilots host No. 16 California.

The game will be a reunion of former U.S. under-20 national team stars. Alex Morgan, who scored a hat trick for Cal in its 4-1 win over Nevada, will face UP stars Elli Reed, Keelin Winters and Michelle Enyeart. They all missed the 2009 NCAA Tournament because of the Under-20 Women's World Cup the USA won with a 2-0 win over North Korea in the final.

Cal will be without Katrin Omarsdottir, who is playing for Iceland (0-2 after two games at the 2009 European Women's Championship).

In Omarsdottir's absence, the Bears have been getting some quality time from Zulma Munoz, a sophomore who played for the Cal women's club team in 2008.

* Follow the weekend Top 25 action at the Soccer America Women's Top 25 Scoreboard.

* Only two Top 25 teams were in mid-week action:

-- After scoring 21 goals last season as a freshman, Laura Heyboer picked up where she left off, scoring No. 18 Michigan State's first goal of the season less than four minutes into the Spartans' 3-0 win over Oakland.

--  Senior captain Caycie Gusman scored back-to-back goals in the first half to help secure No. 22 Rutgers a 4-0 win over UMBC.

* Robyn DesOrmeaux, who started for four years (2001-04) at LSU, died early Thursday morning following a six-year battle with cancer. She was 27.
 
DesOrmeaux, the LSU's all-time leader with 28 wins, fought a courageous six-year battle with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer that is commonly found in the pelvis. She was diagnosed with the disease on Nov. 11, 2004, in the weeks after completing her athletic eligibility at LSU.
 
When DesOrmeaux was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, she was given only a 10 percent chance to live five years, but she persevered and graduated from LSU in 2006 with a degree in general studies.

Fans who wish to assist the DesOrmeaux family with medical bills and funeral expenses can donate to the Robyn DesOrmeaux Donations Trust Account at any Chase Bank location.
