Staff Reporter
OMAHA — In Nebraska’s inau
gural season of women ’ s soccer, there
has been only one team that has been
able to stop the Comhuskers.
The No. 20 Creighton Bluejays.
The4-2 Huskers fell tothe Bluejays
1-0 in overtime before a crowd of 337
at Tranquility Park. The only score of
the game came 7:37 in the first over
time period by senior midfielder Me
lissa Estrada.
Creighton coach Cathy Klein said
that the Huskers have definitely im
proved since the two teams’ last meet

“They’ve improved tons,” Klein
said. “I think they are even more pre
pared now.”
Klein said that Tuesday’s match
was pretty even.
“I think the score is an indication
of how much better they have got
ten,” she said.
Husker coach John Walker said
that one might think losing 1-0 in
overtime would not be too disappoint
ing fora first-year team, but that’s not
how he saw the loss.
“We’re here on that day to play
that team,” he said, “and whoever
plays better is going to win.”
Walker said that poor coverage
resulted in the game-winning goal.
“We made a mistake, and we got
badly punished for it,” Walker said,
“and rightly so, it was a bad mistake.”
Klein said that her team was pre
pared for a very physical game with
“We’ve been preparing for three
days for a physical match,” she said.
“We’ve been calling it a war.
“It was a reality check for us. We’ve
got to be able to compete, and this is
the first time we’ve been asked to do

ers were not able to surprise the

I said Klein. “Their intensity was great.”

“It’s good to play a top 20 team,”
he said. “It was a tough game.”
Klein said that people think first

national powers, but they are wrong.

‘‘We’re going to try to improve our pass
ing efficiency,” he said. ‘‘We’ve been trying
to do that all season. The more we improve it,
the more we’re going to throw the ball. 1
think the coaches would like to see us throw
the ball a few more times.”
Husker coach Tom Osborne said he didn’t
expect Nebraska to drop off just because
Berringer was starting.
‘‘We have full confidence in Brook,”
Osborne said. ‘‘Brook is a very good player,
and he’s been in our system long enough that
he knows what he’s doing. I have full confi
dence that Brook can go out and play well.
He has a good supporting cast.”

seriousness of his injury.
‘‘When it comes down to it, especially with
a life-threatening thing like th is, you have to be
thankful it didn’t push on into something worse,”
McIntyre told the Press-Gazette on Sept. 16.
But Osborne stopped short of comparing
Frazier’s recovery time to similar situations.
Good land, Kan., said he already sensed that
support from his teammates.
“I really felt like everybody was behind me
yesterday when we found out,” Berringer said.
“Everybody was really positive, and I feel like
the team is behind me. That adds all the confi
dence in the world.”
Part of his teammates’ confidence in his
ability may stem back to last week’s 70-21 win
over Pacific, when Berringer completed eight

Berringer said the extensive playing time
against the Tigers would benefit him this week

“That will help me quite a bit, because the
game experience is valuable,” he said. “The

can get, it will help. I think coming off Saturday’s
game will help.”
