Hawaii Wahine head coach Pinsoom Tenzing felt Cal State Sacramento should have put the match away in the first half yesterday.

The host Hornets didn't, yet pulled out a 1-0 victory with the help of a major lapse by the usually reliable Wahine defense.

"We did not play at all today. We were terribly unorganized in the back. Stephanie (freshman goalie Pearson) kept us in the game in the first half," Tenzing said.

The Hornets (5-3-0) scored the lone goal when senior center striker Jessica Mackiewicz took advantage of a poor clearing pass right to her and on the ground. She beat Demarre Sanchez, in the nets for the second half.

Minutes later, Mackiewicz went one-on-one with Sanchez, but the UH junior forced a high shot that sailed over the crossbar.

According to Tenzing, the Wahine (4-4-1) started playing quality soccer after the Hornets scored, but were unable to equalize in the final 14 minutes.

"We didn't take our chances when he had them," said Tenzing.

The Wahine starters managed just three shots and only one was on goal and that came from midfielder Wanette Miyashiro.

The reserves managed six shots. Three by strikers had to be saved by CSS goalie Kristy Milanese.

Hawaii		0 0 - 0
CS Sacramento	0 1 - 1
CSS: Jessica Mackiewicz (unassisted), 75:35.

Shots on goal-UH 9, CSS 12. Saves-UH 4, CSS 4. Corner kicks-UH 6, CSS 3.

Wahine Playbook


vs. Eastern Washington Eagles

Bullet Coaches: Eastern Washington, Jennifer Martin, 3rd season (9-25-3, .284).Hawaii, Pinsoom Tenzing, 6th season (34-56-6, .385).

Bullet Season: Eastern Washington (1-7-0). Hawaii, (4-4-1)

Bullet Series record: This is the first meeting between the schools.

Bullet Top players: Eastern Washington, senior striker Caryn Noel (1 goal, 2 assists), senior midfielder Lora Auch (1 goal, 1 assist), junior midfielder Katie Bowers (1 goal) and junior defender Tracy Wilcoxen. Hawaii, the outstanding play of junior Demarre Sanchez and freshman Stephanie Pearson between the posts.

Bullet Interesting facts: This is the third season for the EWU program and the first in which the Eagles play all NCAA Division I opponents. The Eagles have lost to two Hawaii opponents, Portland State (2-1 in double OT) and St. Mary's (2-0), but earned their first victory of the season Wednesday, blanking Gonzaga, 2-0, as goalkeeper Katie Grothkopp made nine saves.

Bullet Match keys: Eastern Washington has been outscored, 26-8, in eight matches and it would seem this is an opponent against which the Wahine could end their scoring drought. The Wahine have scored just once in the last three matches.It's the final match before Hawaii begins Western Athletic Conference play. The defense missed the steady play and leadership of Camille Kalama against Cal State Sacramento and must compensate with better organization today. The loss yesterday was disheartening, but in the season-long scheme of things, it doesn't matter as long as the Wahine can get their game together in the next week.

Bullet Kickoff: Tomorrow, noon, Hornet Field, Sacramento, Calif.

Bullet On the air: None.
