SOCCER from page 9
During the home stand,
Nebraska is not having many
problems scoring. NU has scored
35 goals this year, 22 of those
coming in the last four games.
Junior Kim Engesser leads the
conference in scoring with 21 (10
I goals and one assist). Kari
9 Uppinghouse and Jenny Benson
I are also in the double digits in
9 scoring.
i Missouri starts six freshmen
9 and five sophomores, but their
j| lone conference win came against
■ Texas, a team that beat the
Huskers earlier this season.
Missouri coach Bryan Blitz said
just because his team beat Texas
doesn’t mean his team will have
similar success against NU.
“We don’t know with our youth
who will show up,” Blitz said.
“Although we are talented we are
very inconsistent. We would need
to play a perfect game.
“With,our youth, we try to play
an attacking style of soccer. If you
are going to beat us you will have
to score more goals than us.’’
Kansas is in a similar situation
to the Tigers in that both teams
haven’t had success in the confer
ence, but KU has had trouble scor
ing goals in conference games this
season. In the Jayhawks’ four con
ference flosses, they have only
scored two goals.
KU coach Dan Magner said his
team will try to play a ball-posses
sion game against the Huskers,
but he said this might not be the
. best time to be playing Nebraska
on the road. • :
“I don’t know if there is a good
time to come into Lincoln,”
Magner said “They are so well
supported at their games. It is an
intimidating environment to come
into.” V
i NU ready for challenge
1 KSU from page 9
I made die trip to Lincoln before.
• Kansas State has been using
! speakers to simulate the crowd noise
j the Wildcats expect to hear in Lincoln.
! ; Nebraska knows the feeling, after
using artificial crowd noise in prepa
ration for the Washington game.
" “We have played in a couple envi
ronments which were difficult,”
Osborne said. “The thing* that was
we had six or seven times^diere we
had a lack of comimfhication
between our offensive playfers.”
Playing at home this week, com
munication for the NU offense
shouldn’t be a problem.
However, after a chilly reception
during the Central Florida game, in
which boos could be heard through
out Memorial Stadium^ Osborne is
wondering how the fans perceive this
game. He said he couldn’t control the
fans’ perception but he did try to put q
the game into perspective for the
75,000-plus fans coming lejthe
game „!U..v plains vmoiai
•:.i‘So much of the crowd fSeactipn u
is,in anticipation Qf what dtey are' J
expecting coming into: the stadium,? j
he said. “I hope the fans understand
this is a dogfight that will probably
go down to the fourth quarter. We
expect to have our hands full.”
