The Huskies advance to the tournament final for the 14th consecutive year after edging out Old Dominion, 4-3, on Friday. The two teams went head-to-head throughout the entire game but sophomore Casey Umstead’s (Sellersville, Pa.) penalty stroke goal proved to be the decisive tally.
Sunday’s championship meeting with Temple will be a rematch of last year’s Big East Tournament finale, in which the Huskies came away with 4-1 victory over the Owls for their 14th tournament title. UConn and Temple last met on Oct. 9 when the Huskies claimed a commanding 8-0 win in the City of Brotherly Love. Overall, Connecticut sports an 8-2-1 record in the all-time series against the Owls.
As a team, UConn has tallied 14 Big East Tournament titles under head coach Nancy Stevens, who has led her squad to three-straight tournament crowns, dating back to 2012.
A win would give Connecticut its 14th-straight NCAA Tournament berth via the league’s automatic bid and 19th in the last 20 seasons.
