PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The women's soccer team is scheduled for a game-filled weekend. The Friars are set to take the pitch Friday, August 24 at Holy Cross.

The Friars posted a 1-1 record during their opening weekend of the season. After falling to No. 11 Boston College, 3-0, the Friars responded by defeating Army, 3-1.
The Friars' offense is led by red shirt senior, Laura DiClemente (Blue Bell, P.a.). DiClemente tallied four points on two goals in the win over Army. Freshman Lauren Elia (Erie, P.a.) tallied her first points as a Friar when she scored the third and final goal in the victory. Providence outshot Army, 16-8.
A strong back line led by Jenna Roncarati (Cumberland, R.I.) prevented Army from scoring until the 58th minute of the match. The Friar defense limited the Black Knights to eight shots. Sophomore goalkeeper Jessica Goudreault (Sherborn, Mass.) finished the game with one save.
