STORRS, Conn. – After starting out 2-0 in conference play, the No. 21 UConn women’s soccer team heads to Texas for its first conference road trip of the season to take on SMU and Houston.

The Huskies are riding a five-game win streak, after opening their American Athletic Conference schedule with back-to-back wins over Tulsa and Memphis. UConn has recorded four goals in each of its last three victories, outscoring opponents 12-4.

UCONN LEADERS
1. Stephanie Ribeiro – 32 points (12g, 8a)
2. Rachel Hill – 24 points (10g, 4a)
3. Maddie Damm – 4 points (1g, 2a) 

Seniors Stephanie Ribeiro (Pawtucket, R.I.) and Rachel Hill (Rollinsford, N.H.) stole the show last weekend, claiming responsibility for all eight UConn goals, four each. Ribeiro, the AAC Offensive Player of the Week, is now tied for first in the nation with 12 goals this season and she leads the country with seven game-winning goals.

The Mustangs are also off to a 2-0 start in AAC games, claiming consecutive wins on the road against USF and UCF. SMU opened conference play with an unusual 1-0 win against No. 23, previously No. 15, USF, where SMU scored the game-winning goal 45 seconds into the match.

SMU LEADERS
