Foxhoven is chasing Portland legends' records

WOMEN'S NEWS ... Portland has had a few pretty good players in its day. Tiffeny Milbrett. Shannon MacMillan. Christine Sinclair. With her torrid scoring pace, Pilot sophomore Danielle Foxhoven is closing in the single-season records of the trio of international stars.

In her last three games, Foxhoven has scored three goals, two goals and four goals to give her 15 on the season. In the No. 2 Pilots' WCC opener against Gonzaga on Saturday, Foxhoven had three goals by halftime, scored her fourth just before the hour mark and subbed out with 19 minutes remaining. Portland went on to win, 7-0. Last year, the former Colorado Rush star scored a team-high 16 goals.

This week's Women's Top 25

* FRESHMAN SENSATION. The nation's top scorer is Morgan Marlborough, whose three goals in Nebraska's 5-2 win over Oklahoma gave her 19 goals, setting a Husker freshman record. Marlborough's winning goal may have been her most impressive goal of the season. She was taken down by a Sooner defender on the right side of the penalty box, recovered to keep possession and dribbled through the Sooner defense before beating goalkeeper Kelsey Devonshire with a shot off the far post.

* STREAKING CHIPPEWAS. Central Michigan won its ninth straight game -- all by shutouts -- when it defeated Mid-American foe Miami (Ohio), 1-0, on Sunday. Senior Amanda Waugh came off the bench to help set up the game's only goal scored by Chelsi Abbott in the 31st minute. The nine consecutive shutouts tie the MAC record that Ohio set in 2004. CMU leads the conference with a 6-0-0 record.
