Providence, R.I. - The Providence College women's soccer team will travel to Storrs, Conn. on Saturday, Oct. 20 to take on the Connecticut Huskies in its last BIG EAST regular season game of the 2012 season. The game will be played at Joseph J. Morrone Stadium at 7:00 p.m. The Friars enter Saturday's game with a BIG EAST record of 3-6-0 (8-8-1 overall), while the Huskies currently hold a BIG EAST record of 3-5-1 (7-7-2 overall).
In the 2011 match up with the Huskies, the Friars defeated Connecticut, 2-1, to earn themselves the No. 4 seed in the BIG EAST tournament. Current fifth-year senior Laura DiClemente (Blue Bell, Pa.) notched both goals in the Friars' victory, which led them to the conference tournament for the first time since 1994. Her first goal came in the 81st minute when she buried a free kick. In the final minute of play a deflection from a corner kick landed at DiClemente's feet. From 20-yards out DiClemente's strike found the back of the net.
Providence has recorded 20 goals and 15 assists thus far for a total of 55 points. Freshman Catherine Zimmerman (Madison, N.J.) tops the Friar's score sheet with 15 points on seven goals and one assist followed by DiClemente and senior Mary Vercollone (Pembroke, Mass.) with nine and eight points, respectively.
Sophomore goalkeeper Jessica Goudreault (Sherborn, Mass.) has played in 15 games for the Friars, recording 48 saves and a .727 save percentage.
SCOUTING CONNECTICUT: The Huskies currently sit in fourth place of the American Division with a BIG EAST record of 3-5-1 (7-7-2 overall). Saturday's match marks the last regular season game for both Connecticut and Providence. Connecticut has tallied 32 goals and 22 assists for a total of 86 points this season. Danielle Schulmann is Connecticut's leading scorer with 25 points on nine goals and seven assists.
