WOMEN'S NEWS ... Oregon women's soccer is more than the Portland Pilots, the two-time national champions (2002 and 2005) and the top-drawing program in the country. Oregon State and Oregon both joined UP in this week's Soccer America Women's Top 25, giving the state of Oregon three teams in the Top 25 for the first time.

Oregon State (7-1-0) has a seven-game winning streak following its 3-1 win over Denver on Sunday. The Beavers have already surpassed their 2008 win total of six games and equaled the seven games they won in 2007. "We've been in the building [process] these past three years," Melissa Peck, who scored in both games at the Oregon State Nike Invitational, told the Corvallis Gazette-Times. "To finally win some games, against some pretty good teams, it's kind of special." The Beavers will put their winning streak on the line on Friday when they travel to Portland.

Oregon (6-1-1) has won five games in a row and gone seven straight without a defeat. Junior Jen Stoltenberg's sixth of the season gave the Ducks a 1-0 win over Dartmouth on Sunday at the Oregon State tournament and earned her a place on this week's Soccer America Women's Team of the Week. "Our team was patient and persistent in our attack," Oregon coach Tara Erickson said afterwards. "I think we've learned, from some of our previous games, how to manage the game."

Oregon has had more success than OSU in recent years but has never advanced to the NCAA Tournament. In 2006, the Ducks went 6-1-2 in Pac-10 play and were 12-6-2 overall but did not get a bid. Oregon State's only NCAA Tournament berth came in 1994.

* MONDAY'S RESULTS
Campbell 1 Radford 0
New Mexico State 0 West Texas A&M 2

* INJURY REPORT. Senior Brittney Harrison, fourth all-time on Texas Tech's scoring list for points and goals, was lost for the season after suffering an ACL knee injury in Friday night's 2-1 loss to Alabama. Red Raider coach Tom Stone described Harrison, who had five goals in seven games, as "easily been the most dangerous player we've had."

* RECORD BOOK. Junior Kaity Mattsson became Nicholls State's all-time leading scorer when her goal in the Colonels' 7-1 win over Texas Southern on Sunday gave her 18 goals in her career.

* LEADING SCORERS
1. Morgan Marlborough, Nebraska 13
2. Rachel King, Louisiana Tech 11
3. Kelley O'Hara, Stanford 10
4. Kiersten Dallstream, Washington State 9
