NU shooting better
going into California
By Darren Ivy
When the No. 17 Nebraska
women’s soccer team travels to
California to take on No. 25 UCLA
and Southern California tonight and
Sunday, the Comhuskers are confi
dent their shots will be on target,
senior striker Kim Engesser said.
The shooting woes that plagued
NU in a 2-1 loss to Wisconsin
Milwaukee in the opening game all
but vanished in last week’s Fila
Invitational Tournament in which NU
defeated No. 8 Clemson 4-1 and No.
20 Stanford 3-0.
“Things got better in the last two
games,” Engesser said. “We’re going
in the right direction.”
Engesser, the Big 12 player of the
week, credits all the work the team
put in at practice for the turnaround.
After seeing more than half of
NU’s shots go over the net against
Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Coach John
Walker decided to set aside more
time in practice for shooting drills.
“You don’t get that many
chances,” Walker said. “When you
get them, you have to make sure you
make the goalie stop them.”
Against UWM, the Huskers had
39 shots, but only 12 of them were on
goal. Against Clemson, NU had 19
shots with 12 on goal, Walker said.
Walker said the low percentage in
the first game was a combination of a
lack of concentration and nervous
ness by the younger players.
The return of forward Lindsey
Eddleman from a foot injury, as well
as juniors Amy Walsh and Isabelle
Momeau from the Canadian national
team, gave the offense a big boost,
Walker said. He added that they bring
more experience and leadership onto
Anytime you can nave them in
the lineup, it helps tremendously,”
Walker said. “Not only do they do
good jobs, but they help out others.”
The Huskers are going to need
everyone to help each other out
against the Bruins and Women of
UCLA is 4-1 after winning the
San Francisco Diadora Classic Sept.
12-13. USC, meanwhile, is 2-2.
“These are two quality teams who
are well coached and play in a good
conference,” Walker said. “It’s like
playing two NCAA Tournament
While the Bruins are ranked,
Eddleman said the USC game
Sunday at 3 p.m. might be the tougher
Last year, the Huskers defeated
the Women of Troy 2-1 in Lincoln.
According to Eddleman, Southern
Cal players weren’t too happy after
“This will be one of the toughest
games this season, especially on the
road and after last year,” Eddleman
said. “I think we can handle it as long
as we play like we did last week.”

For the last two weeks, Shaun
Coleman woke up, attended school
and went to football practice before
spending nearly three hours on the
phone each night
A SuperPrep All-American from
Aurora, Colo., Coleman got call after
call from coaches, newspapers,
recruiting services and even an occa
sional nutty college football fan.
Despite pressures pulling in every
direction, the 6-foot-4,210-pound line
backer said he finally made the deci
sion he felt was best for him.
After being offered a scholarship
from Nebraska Coach Frank Solich
at the Comhuskers’ camp in June,
Coleman called to accept earlier this
week. Nine high school seniors have
now given NU verbal commitments
to sign letters of intent Feb. 3.
“I just felt like I was completely
ready,” Coleman said. “When they
made the offer, I was pretty honored
and pretty pumped up, but I wanted to
take some time and make the best
decision I could. It ended up being
Nebraska. That’s pretty sweet”
Coleman, who runs a 4.5-second
hand-timed 40-yard-dash, also plans to
play baseball at Nebraska. An outfield
er who hit .440 with 11 homers in 22
games last spring, Coleman said he has
spoken with NU Baseball Coach Dave
Van Horn about the possibility.
A quarterback for Regis Jesuit
High School this fall, Coleman has
helped his team to a 2-0 start by rush
ing for 140 yards and passing for 120.
Coleman has qualified academi
