      Very nice Summit League Championship win for the women's team.
      Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!--Bluto--

        SDSU soccer crowned Summit champs
        Jacks shut out Oakland to earn first-ever berth to NCAA tournament
        from staff reports November 10, 2008

        MACOMB, Ill. - With another shutout and another clutch goal by its top scorer, the South Dakota State women's soccer team earned its first bid to the NCAA Division I tournament Sunday afternoon at John MacKenzie Alumni Field on the campus of Western Illinois.

        Midfielder Erin Kasmarik scored her 10th goal of the season - and fifth game winner - in the 12th minute and the Jackrabbits held on to post their 10th shutout in a 1-0 victory against Oakland in the Summit League championship match.

        By winning the conference tournament, SDSU - in its first year of postseason eligibility after making the transition from the Division II level - receives an automatic berth into the NCAA tournament. The 64-team field will be announced live at 7 tonight on ESPNews.

            SDSU soccer claims Summit championship

            The South Dakota State University women's soccer team took home its first-ever Summit League Championship trophy after defeating No. 1 seed Oakland University (Mich.), 1-0 , Sunday afternoon on a cold, windy day at John MacKenzie Alumni Field on the campus of Western Illinois University.

            "It's hard to measure something this big," said head coach Lang Wedemeyer. "It was certainly a historic win and I'm very proud of the team."

            Senior forward Erin Kasmarik put the Jacks ahead 1-0 with her 10th goal of the season and fifth game-winner . Kasmarik, who was named tournament MVP, took a pass from Illinois native Kayla Braffet and beat goalkeeper Kim Herbst with a header in the 12th minute.

            "Kaz had a great weekend," said Wedemeyer. "She had some incredibly important goals and deserved the tournament MVP award."

            Both teams had opportunities to score, but stingy defense prevailed. Senior goalkeeper Nicole Lograsso made two saves for SDSU in the sixth and eighth minute to keep the Golden Grizzlies off the board. SDSU missed its fair share of opportunities, as well, including Danni Healy hitting the post on a shot in the 15th minute.

            "I think we did a pretty good job of taking advantage of opportunities," Wedemeyer said. "I think we had a few chances to seal the game and we didn't take advantage, but we did what we had to do." Lograsso ended the game with five saves for her 14th win of the season and 10th shutout of the season. Oakland held a 13-8 shot advantage and a 2-0 cornerkick advantage in the match.

            "She (Lograsso) had a very solid game," said Wedemeyer. "She made things look easy and led the game well. She came off the line when needed to and was very solid."

            Joining Kasmarik on the alltournament team from SDSU were midfielder Chelsea Goosen, forward Kellyn Farrell and defender Kelly Larson.

            "There isn't much time (to prepare)," said Wedemeyer. "This is a long trip home, and we'll get back early Monday morning. We'll turn around Monday evening and figure out who we play and start preparing come Tuesday."

                Where are you getting this. I think that hat of yours is getting a little too tight on your head. I think you need to get your info straight.

                  Dude, you gotta end this Bluehat man-crush you have. Although I will assume the mods will likely do that for you.
