WEEKEND IN REVIEW
• The Trojans were unable to capture a win in the opening weekend of Sun Belt Conference play, falling by a 5-0 final at Middle Tennessee on Friday before again being blanked 5-0 at Western Kentucky on Sunday.
• In addition to being outscored 10-0, UALR was outshot by a total count of 63-6, including 28-3 in shots on goal, over the course of the weekend.
• In Friday's match, the Blue Raiders put up 27 shots and 15 shots on goal against the UALR defense. Kate Loye and Paige Goeglein scored two goals each to lead MT's offense. Goeglein now finds herself tied for the Sun Belt lead in goals (7) and the outright lead in total points (17).
• Middle Tennessee put up two scores in the first half before tacking on three more goals over the final 45 minutes, including two in the first nine minutes of the second half.
• Junior Natalie Marsh got the start against Middle Tennessee and allowed four goals while making seven stops in 53:24 of work. Freshman Shantel Wittke played the final 36:36 and made three saves while allowing one score.

NEWCOMER CONTRIBUTIONS
• Junior Ashley Barksdale, a first-year transfer player from Memphis, also scored her first goal as a Trojan against UAPB. Barksdale has made an instant impact since returning to her hometown, starting nine of ten matches while putting five of eight shots on target for a .625 shots-on-goal percentage.

• Junior Paige Mason, has scored one goal on the year (at UCA, 9/5) and ranks third on the team in both shots (13) and is tied for third in shots on goal (7). Mason has started all ten matches this season.

DEFENSIVE STALWARTS
• Senior Olivia Carrasco has anchored UALR's defense through the first ten matches, playing a team-high 848 minutes -- 84.8 per contest. Carrasco's presence on defense has been essential to a team stricken by injuries to a number of members of its backline.
• Sophomore Betsy Blackwood (762 minutes), senior Jenna Brady (804), junior Ashley Barksdale (785) and freshman Ashley Asuncion (775) have all logged heavy minutes on the defensive end of the field for the Trojans.

INJURY BUG
• UALR is still trying to find ways to make up for the loss of a number of players due to early and off-season injuries.
• Senior Michelle Pittman, who started 18 games in goal in 2011, is included on the list of UALR players yet to see the field this season. Senior Kamiya Merrick and junior Adrianna Queen have also missed all seven matches, while sophomore Amanda Wilkinson and junior Holly Holland both saw early action before going down with injuries.

RPI RANKINGS
• UALR shows up at No. 279 in the first RPI poll release of the 2012 season. The Trojans' opponents this weekend, Louisiana and ULM, show up at No. 194 and No. 294, respectively. Middle Tennessee (75) is the highest ranked of all Sun Belt teams.
