Freshmen are still finding their way around their new campuses, but the NCAA soccer season is well underway. Deatrich Wise Jr. Jersey . By the time Labor Day arrives next week, many teams will already be nearly a third of the way through their regular-season schedules.So there is no time to waste. What were the headlines from the seasons second week?Were glad you asked.Sunshine State meets Golden StateThere were notable results elsewhere in college soccer -- Arkansas upset Duke, and North Carolina and Florida Atlantic traded goals in the final 70 seconds of regulation before the Tar Heels finally escaped with a double-overtime win. But no team invested more capital -- perhaps even literally, if you add up miles and minutes involved -- to end up almost exactly where it began than Florida after a 1-0 overtime loss at Stanford and a 4-3 overtime win at UCLA.One win that could have been two wins. One loss that could have been two losses.Two games that could have been stalemates.For a team locked for years now in a cycle of being among the top national challengers without quite being the challenged, it has to be a familiar feeling.At the same time, for all the heavy lifting senior Savannah Jordan did in scoring twice and putting in the cross that deflected off UCLA for an overtime own-goal winner Sunday, the response from a starting lineup that featured five sophomores and a freshman might prove worth revisiting come the postseason.Now all that awaits in Gainesville is No. 1 Florida State on Friday night (while UCLA, which won at Texas A&M this past Friday, hosts Penn State and North Carolina this week).Quick turnaround for Canadian Olympic medalistsThe math proved simple enough when West Virginia and Clemson met Friday night: Two Canadian Olympians are greater than one Canadian Olympian.A week removed from beating host Brazil for Olympic bronze in Sao Paulo, West Virginias Kadeisha Buchanan and Ashley Lawrence were both in the starting lineup for the Mountaineers. Standing in their way was Clemson goalkeeper Kailen Sheridan, an alternate on the Canadian team who traveled to the Olympic tournament. Sheridan ultimately had the most work to do, forced to make seven saves for the Tigers, but she couldnt do anything about the shot West Virginias Amandine Pierre-Louis slotted home early in the second half.Pierre-Louis, naturally, is Canadian (there are currently seven Canadians on the West Virginia roster, not all that surprising for a program that has long had a talent pipeline running north).The ACC season, not to mention this weeks rivalry game at South Carolina, affords Clemson plenty more opportunities to burnish its résumé. With two stars back, West Virginia needed this.BYUs road show impressesWin on the road now for the chance to play at home later. Stated or not, thats the objective this time of year for a lot of teams that play in good conferences but nevertheless arent quite good enough, or at least deep enough, to put the polish on an NCAA tournament résumé.And so a week that began poorly for BYU, a loser at home to Nebraska 1-0 on Monday, took a pleasant turn in the form of a 3-2 win at defending national champion Penn State on Friday on the strength of an Ashley Hatch hat trick.BYU won at Tennessee early in the 2014 season and at LSU and Baylor a year before that. The Cougars have also made a recent habit of winning at Portland, still no easy feat for WCC teams. So these werent wholly uncharted waters. Still, the bulk of BYUs best recent work came at home, where in past year the Cougars surpassed Portland as national attendance leaders.And winning games at places like Penn State, especially after first taking and then giving away a two-goal lead, is a good way to earn games in Provo in November.Georgetowns goal machineWhat kind of week did Georgetown senior Grace Damaska have? She scored more goals than every other Big East team. Not just any other player in the league, mind you, but more than any of the other nine teams scored.She started quickly in Thursdays win against Delaware, probably a good thing on a day when the weather report listed the heat index in the nations capital within a few degrees of triple digits. Another two goals early in the second half have her a natural hat trick. She was back at it under similar conditions Sunday (the official scoring registered the conditions as gross) against Colorado College. Her two goals put an end to any potential for a comeback from the visitors in a 4-1 win.Damaskas scoring binge will be tested when Georgetown travels to Rutgers on Friday (the Hoyas managed just five shots in a loss against Stanford a week ago), but a five-goal week is heady stuff.Alabamas rising TideAlabama scored its 14th goal of the 2015 season in an October loss to Missouri. The Crimson Tides season came to a close a week later.It is not yet September, let alone Labor Day, and the Tide have 14 goals in their first four games. The current run included a 4-0 win against Campbell on Friday and a 1-0 win at Chattanooga on Sunday. Junior Lacey Clarida scored the lone goal at Chattanooga and has scored at least once in each game. Sophomore Abbie Boswell, the MAC freshman of the year at Ball State a season ago, has at least one assist in each game.As its schedule suggests, Alabama isnt exactly competing for NCAA tournament seeding at the moment (its opening-weekend wins came against Sam Houston State and Murray State). With games at South Florida and Florida Gulf Coast this week, there will soon be more useful evidence by which to judge SEC potential. But for second-year coach Wes Hart, wins and goals are the best way to turn heads in Tuscaloosa. Antonio Garcia Patriots Jersey . -- Cam Newton pranced into the end zone, placed his hands over his chest and did his familiar Superman pose. Derek Rivers Womens Jersey . Murray beat Sam Querrey 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-3 to clinch Britains opening-round victory against the United States on Sunday at Petco Park. "Im proud of the way Im playing just now, because I had to do a lot of work to get back to where I want to be," Murray said after celebrating with his teammates on the red clay court in a temporary stadium in left field of the downtown home of baseballs San Diego Padres. http:///...s-Super-Bowl-Jersey/ . Mickelson barely made the cut but had the best round of the day with nine birdies and an eagle coupled with two bogeys to sit two shots behind leader Craig Lee of Scotland. Lee shot a 69 for a 12-under 204 total. "I just love the fact I am in contention and have an opportunity in my first tournament of the year here in Abu Dhabi," Mickelson said. RALEIGH, N.C. -- It didnt take Omer Yurtseven long to show flashes of the shooting touch and range that made him a big international recruit for North Carolina State.The 7-foot Turkish freshman had nine of his 12 points in the first half Thursday night to highlight the Wolfpacks 97-64 win against Appalachian State, a good first step for a player who had to wait a month to make his college debut due to an NCAA eligibility dispute.I was not nervous, Yurtseven said. I was excited though. The first time when I was going on the court, I was excited.The NCAA had required the five-star freshman to sit out the first nine games and pay $1,000 to charity after reviewing his time playing for a club team overseas. He entered at the 14:57 mark of the first half and played 24 minutes, making 4 of 6 shots and even stepping out to knock down a 3-pointer from the top while drawing loud cheers from fans -- some coined it Yurtmas on social media -- for the home-standing Wolfpack (8-2).It was really fun, Yurtseven said. I really missed being out there.Fellow freshman Dennis Smith Jr. finished with 22 points to lead N.C. State, which scored the first 10 points and led big all night. Maverick Rowan added 13 points in his second game back from a seven-game absence due to a concussion, while N.C. State shot 52 percent.He spaces the floor, Smith said of Yurtseven, he knows how to roll, sets great screens, hes very smart, high IQ, sees the floor pretty well. He just makes the offense a lot better.Ronshad Shabazz scored 14 points for the Mountaineers (3-6), who shot 32 percent after entering the game shooting about 45 percent on the season.We had tremendous opportunities to make shots, shots we usually make, and we just missed them today, Mountaineers coach Jim Fox said. It affected us and when you keep missing and missing wide-open shots, it takes a toll on you and carries on to other parts of the game.BIG PICTUREAppalachian State: The Mountaineers suffered another big loss to a power-conference opponent. Antonio Garcia Youth Jersey. They trailed by as many as 26 before losing 103-94 in the second game at Tennessee, lost by 35 at Duke on Nov. 26 and by 33 against the Wolfpack.N.C. State: Adding Yurtseven meant this was the first game the Wolfpack was at full strength. For coach Mark Gottfried, the focus now is to integrate Yurtseven into the rotation and get him adjusted to American basketball while simultaneously bringing along a young rotation that hasnt played much together -- one he hopes will have a very different look come February.Weve got a little more depth now, Gottfried said, which is nice.HANDS OFFYurtseven had foul trouble during two exhibition games, including when he fouled out in just 11 minutes against Division II Barton. He had four fouls Thursday but managed to avoid major trouble in what will be a big part of his adjustment to the American college game.You just have to watch the referees, Yurtseven said. They talk to you, so they tell you what youve got to do, what you shouldnt do.GOTTFRIEDS TAKELike Smith, Gottfried sees plenty of potential for Yurtseven to make an impact with his shooting and passing touch.When the balls in his hands, especially in the high post, hes really effective, the coach said. And (the players) know that. Again, I think the more he plays with our guys, the more they play and just get comfortable, hes going to find ways to score within our offense.But I do think our guys are excited about playing with him because hes such a good passer. I think that does a lot for our team.UP NEXTAppalachian State: The Mountaineers host James Madison on Saturday.N.C. State: N.C. State is home Sunday against Fairfield.---Follow Aaron Beard on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/aaronbeardap---More AP college basketball at http://collegebasketball.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-Top25 Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
