O'Leary: UCF must work on intensity
By Times Staff
Published August 29, 2005
ORLANDO - If Sunday's practice was any indication of things to come, the Golden Knights are going to need to kick it up a notch.
"I think basically it was a typical Sunday practice," UCF coach George O'Leary said. "I didn't feel real great about it. I thought we had a lot of guys going through the motions and not really on assignments."
O'Leary added the team was "very sloppy" on offense.
After the workout, held in helmets and shoulder pads, UCF has just two practices remaining to prepare for Thursday's season opener at South Carolina. The team has a walk-through planned for Wednesday.
LSU: Coach Les Miles canceled today's 3 p.m. practice and will wait out Hurricane Katrina like the rest of south Louisiana.
Miles said his main concern was players whose families live in the path of the dangerous storm, which was expected to hit land today.
LSU's roster has 26 players from the New Orleans area.
Miles and his staff spent Sunday in the office, treating the day like a Monday because they expected to miss work today. Miles' first media luncheon of the season had been scheduled for today, but was postponed with no new date set.
LSU is scheduled to open the season at 7 p.m. Saturday against North Texas in Tiger Stadium, which was still undergoing construction Sunday afternoon on a new west upper deck.
"They're going to work as long as they can on Monday," LSU assistant athletic director Herb Vincent said. "They will also secure all possible projectiles around the stadium and batten down all other construction and equipment around the stadium for the storm."
ECKERD: The women fell to 0-2 after a 2-0 home loss to Alabama-Huntsville. Junior midfielder Amy Lambert nearly avoided the shutout, drilling a ball past the goalkeeper in the final minutes, but it was deflected by a defender before crossing the line. Tritons senior goalie Caitlin McClure had a career-high 10 saves. Eckerd hosts William Woods at 5 p.m. Friday.
SAINT LEO: The men's game against visiting West Florida was postponed after the first half because of rain. The Lions led 1-0 at the break thanks to an unassisted goal from sophomore Mikael Angesjo. The Saint Leo women lost their opener 3-1 to West Florida. Freshman defender Crystal Rinaldi scored for the Lions in the 57th minute.
TAMPA: The women scored four second-half goals and held visiting Columbus State scoreless. Freshman Shelby Kuni led the attack with two goals and an assist. Freshman Brittney Evans and sophomore Alison Penland also scored for the Spartans. Tampa sophomore goalie Shannon Aitken had one save for her second straight shutout. UT plays in a Columbus State tournament Friday.
UCF: The women defeated host UC Santa Barbara 4-0 behind two goals from Michelle DeCespedes. The junior transfer's first score came on a rebound at 26:14. DeCespedes' final goal came on a penalty kick in the 73rd minute. Freshman Lydia Jones and sophomore Jessica Newport each recorded goals. Sophomore goalie Jennifer Manis had two saves.
USF: The women dropped their season opener 1-0 to host Florida Atlantic. The Bulls' lone shot on goal came from junior Jessica Zabel. USF sophomore Casey Garrett had four saves in goal. The Bulls return home to face Nicholls State at 3 p.m. on Saturday.
