GETTING THEM IN YOUNG
Oregon has used a predominately young lineup in Pac-12 action. In this weekend's matches against #2 UCLA and USC, eight freshmen saw action for the Ducks. Six of those freshmen were in the starting lineup. Four of those freshmen (Shanelle Simien, Kiyomi Cook, Kelsey Foo, Ryann Davie) have appeared in every match this season.

LOOKING FOR THE NET
Julie Armstrong (4) and Maddy Mercier (3) have combined to tally seven of Oregon's 11 goals on the season. When the duo have had their feet on the ball, they have created 22 shots on goal out of 36 total shots. As a team, the Ducks have only taken 47 SOGs.

CHIPPING IN FOR THE CAUSE
The youngest Ducks have also been chipping in where it counts: goals. As a team, Oregon has tallied 13 goals on the season. Freshmen Shanelle Simien (1) and Bri Pugh (2) have added three of those goals.

SHUTTING IT DOWN
Lindsay Parlee and Abby Steele combined to shutout Oregon's first five opponents. Steele is actually the only goalkeeper to earn an individual shutout as both had been sharing time in goal until the Santa Clara match. In that match, Steele got her hands on a career-high eight saves.

LENDING A HELPING HAND...ERR, FOOT
In addition to netting goals, three freshman have contributed in the assist column. Of Oregon's 10 assists on the season, Shanelle Simien, Kiyomi Cook and Riley Smith have all added one helper apiece.

DOING IT OVER AND OVER
Only four Ducks have scored multiple goals for Oregon this season. With Julie Armstrong's four and Maddy Mercier's three, Scout Libke and Bri Pugh have added two apiece-

NEXT ON THE SCHEDULE
Oregon plays the fifth game of its Pac-12 road swing against Colorado on Oct. 16 (Sun) at noon before returning to Pape' Field on Oct. 21 (Washington at 7 p.m.).

UPCOMING MARKETING AND PROMOTIONS
UO is promoting their October 21st game against Washington as "Think Pink" night for Breast Cancer Awareness. A silent auction of donated soccer items will be held, with all proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen foundation. In conjunction with "Think Pink" night, Oregon will also be sponsoring Jersey Night where all youth wearing their favorite soccer jersey get in for $1.
