Formation changes don't slow down high-scoring LSU

WOMEN'S NEWS ... LSU put on one of the most impressive displays of the women's season when the Tigers blasted previously unbeaten Georgia, 6-0, and Tennessee, 5-1, to open their SEC season. The wins propelled LSU into the Soccer America Women's Top 25 for the first time this season at No. 20.

On Friday, freshman forward Carlie Banks led LSU with a hat trick and frontline partner Rachel Yenez added a goal and two assists. Two days later against Tennessee, the Tigers switched formations, dropping Banks from the starting lineup and using just Yenez up front, and they scored four first-half goals.
"We've got a versatile attack," said LSU coach Brian Lee after the Tennessee game. "That was the appropriate move for today. I think it speaks well of our team that we can take out Carlie Banks, who had a hat trick on Friday, and still be up 2-0 nine minutes in. We did a good job of keeping up the pressure."

Yenez finished the weekend with three goals and two assists, while midfielder Malorie Rutledge had one goal and three assists. Freshman Tricia Johnson scored goals against Georgia and Tennessee.


* TALLAHASSEE BARN-BURNER. You'd be hard-pressed to find two better young women's teams than Florida State and Boston College. Between them, they started 10 sophomores and four freshmen Sunday in Tallahassee, where they put on quite a show.

Twice Florida State went ahead and twice the visiting Eagles equalized before sophomore Jessica Price gave the Seminoles the lead for good, breaking a 2-2 tie in the 73rd minute on her seventh goal of the season. The win was the Seminoles' third in a row over a Top 25 team. The loss snapped BC's nine-game winning streak.

"Well, it was exactly what we expected," said FSU coach Mark Krikorian.  "We know Boston College is a very, very good team.  They came in here and pushed us to the limit.  The good thing for us is that we found a way to win."
