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 game will be played at the Crusaders' home field, Linda Johnson Smith Soccer Stadium in Worcester, Mass. (7:00 p.m). On Sunday, August 26 the Friars head to Quinnipiac for a 1:00 p.m. match up with the Bobcats in Hamden, Conn.
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.
SCOUTING HOLY CROSS: The Crusaders finished the 2011 campaign with a record of 2-12-3. Holy Cross jumped into action at the start of their 2012 season and posted a record of 1-0 with a, 4-1, win over Wagner. The offense is led by last weeks BRINE Patriot League Offensive Player of the Week, junior Cassie Muzik. Muzik has tallied four points on two goals. Seniors Hannah Earner and Maura Fox have aided the Crusader offense with one goal each.
SCOUTING QUINNIPIAC: The Bobcats open up their 2012 season Thursday, August 23 at Yale. Quinnipiac finished its 2011 season with a record of 5-10-1. The Bobcats were picked to finish sixth in the 2012 Northeast Conference preseason poll. Quinnipiac has competed in one 2012 exhibition game versus Bridgeport, and earned a 2-0 victory. Quinnipiac returns 20 players from last years roster and welcomes four newcomers. Among the returners is Shauna Edwards.
