RUSTION, La. - After a stunning loss Friday night, the Louisiana Tech soccer team (8-3-4, 1-1 WAC) looks to get back in gear with a Sunday afternoon matchup at 2 p.m. Central Time against Utah State (9-3-1, 1-1 WAC) at Chuck and Gloria Bell Soccer Field.

"They are the defending conference champions and are always tough to play at home," said head coach Kevin Sherry.

Senior Olivia Lukasewich (Woodbridge, Ontario) and juniors Finola Corley (Telford, England) and Mo Rockwell (Salt Lake City, Utah) have each scored a goal in Western Athletic Conference action. Senior Scotti Culton (Waterloo, Ill.) and Corley are both credited with an assist apiece in WAC games.

Culton's assist in the game against Nevada was the 21st of her career and broke a tie with former teammate Kiva Gresham for the most in school history. The assist also gave Culton six on the season which is tied for the fourth most in a year. She needs three more to set a new program record that was established last season by Gresham.

Starting both games in goal during conference action has been sophomore Caitlin Updyke (Broomfield, Colo.). She has stopped eight shots in the two WAC games with one shutout.

The Aggies hold a 6-0 record in the series against Tech with four of the six games being decided by one goal including a 1-0 result last season in Ruston.

Shantel Flanary leads the Aggies and the conference with nine goals and 19 points and has been named Verizon WAC Offensive Player of the Week three times this year. Pacing the squad with six assists is Kendra Pemberton and Molli Merrill has started all 14 games in goal with a 0.79 goals-against-average.
