Men’s Tennis

The University of Miami won four-ofsix singles matches in straight sets while sweeping all three doubles matches against Georgia Southern Friday afternoon in its first action of the 2005 Fall season at the 2005 Hurricane Invitational at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center.

In singles play, junior Josh Cohen, who is ranked 20th nationally, cruised past Lasha Janashia of Georgia Southern, winning in straight sets, 6-0, 6-0. Junior Luigi D’Agord, an All-SEC transfer from Alabama who is ranked 26th in the country, claimed his first win as a Hurricane, downing Vincent Patry of GSU, 6-4, 6-4.

Senior Tim Krebs-ranked 62nd- upended the Eagles’ Charles-Henri Trottet, 6-2, 6-1, while sophomore Vivek Subramanian overtook Neil Shine of Georgia Southern, 6-2, 6-1 and senior John Hoyes downed Phillip Prins, 6-2, 4-6, 6-1.

In doubles play, Krebs and D’Agord defeated Patry and Prins, 8-3, Cohen and Subramanian downed Janashia and Tingen, 9-8 (5) and Hoyes and junior P.J. Passalacqua overtook Trottet and Shine, 8-1 as UM claimed all three doubles matches.

Women’s Soccer

Freshman forward Paulelett Ricks- Chambers of the University of Miami women’s soccer team netted a gamewinner in the 68th minute to seal a 2-1 win over Auburn Friday night at the AU Soccer Complex in Auburn, Ala.

With the score knotted at one-all, Ricks-Chambers footed a pass from UM (5-2-1) freshman midfielder Bryn Heinicke to score pass Auburn (1-5-1) keeper Anna Fiser at the 67:23 mark to give the Hurricanes the victory.

Auburn managed to out-shoot the Hurricanes by a total of 15-to-11, but managed to get off just five shots on goal, four of which were denied by UM sophomore keeper Lauren McAdam, who picked up her fifth win of the season.

The Tigers were the first to score with Kara Kasten sneaking a goal past McAdam in the 41st minute.

Miami answered quickly as sophomore Rebecca Tweneboah fielded a pass from sophomore midfielder Jessica Gillman to score the equalizer past starting AU goalkeeper Allison Whitworthy.

Following a collision in the box, Whitworthy was replaced by Fiser midway through the second half.

Ricks-Chambers would capitalize on the keeper change, scoring past Fiser on a feed by Heinicke for the game-winner in the 68th minute to lead the Hurricanes to their fifth win of the season.
