Potestio — The difference
between a good soccer
team and a great one
By JIM VITTI
Of ttw Emerald
A pretty good soccer team,
say the experts, may average
between one and two goals
per game.
Meet Michele Potestio, a
pretty good soccer team.
Potestio, a sophomore,
leads Oregon's undefeated
women’s soccer machine in
both scoring and assists. The
5-2, 120-pound striker has 12
goals in just nine games and

quick, fakes the ball well and
stays cool at all times,” says
Feeney, whose Ducks are
7-0-2 overall and 4-0-2 in
Northwest Collegiate Soccer
Conference play.

natural tendency is for her to
come back a little. But she’s
handling it quite well.”
Says Potestio, “Being
switched to a fullback didn't
affect me that much. I just drop
back on defense, so basically
it’s the same, except on the
forward line — there’s more
pressure on me to score or get
the ball to another striker.
“My job, on offense, is to
score or create passes and
plays. Mainly, right now, I’m
