STORRS, Conn. – The No. 21 UConn women’s soccer team will close out its home schedule this weekend when it hosts Central Florida Thursday and South Florida Sunday for senior day. The five Husky seniors and two senior managers will be honored prior to the noon match-up against the Bulls.

Fans, please note that due to the Huskies Forever Weekend and Homecoming Parade, there will be several road closures and traffic detours on Sunday, Oct. 16.

The Huskies went 1-0-1 on the road last weekend with a scoreless overtime draw against SMU and a 1-0 victory over Houston. UConn and SMU are currently tied for first in the conference, both with 3-0-1 records in American games and 10 conference points.  

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

Senior Toriana Patterson (Yorktown Heights, N.Y.) was honored by the league as Defensive Player of the Week for her strong defensive efforts against SMU and Houston. Senior goalkeeper Emily Armstrong (Collegeville, Pa.) was named to weekly honor roll after she tallied her sixth shutout this season, not allowing a goal in all 200 minutes this past weekend.

UConn is currently riding a seven-game unbeaten streak heading into Thursday’s match-up with the Knights. Redshirt-senior Stephanie Ribeiro (Pawtucket, R.I.) currently leads the nation in game-winning goals with seven and is tied for third overall goals this season with 12.

SCOUTING THE KNIGHTS
Record: 6-5-1, 1-1-1 AAC
The Series: 5-3-0, UConn leads
Last Time Out: Sept. 27, 2015 | Orlando, Fla. | UConn wins 3-2

Central Florida is coming off its first draw of the season to fellow Sunshine State opponent USF. Despite being ahead 1-0 against the Bulls at the start, the Knights recorded a 1-1 tie with South Florida after two overtime periods.

UCF LEADERS
1. Carol Rodrigues – 20 points (9g, 2a)
2. Morgan Ferrara – 11 points (5g, 1a)
3. Cortney O’Connell – 7 points (3g, 1a)

Prior to the draw against USF, the Knights went 1-1 against the Texas opponents, shutting out Houston 4-0 on Sept. 29 and dropping a 3-1 decision against SMU Oct. 2.

SCOUTING THE BULLS
Record: 9-1-1, 1-1-1 AAC
The Series: 5-6-2, USF leads
Last Time Out: Sept. 24, 2015 | Tampa, Fla. | UConn loses 1-0

South Florida played UCF to a 1-1 in double overtime at home Friday in the team’s only match-up last week. The Bulls were down 1-0 to the Knights early in the first half, but knotted up the score in the 35th minute. Neither team could capitalize in the second half or in two periods of overtime and both teams recorded their first draws of the season.

USF LEADERS
1. Evelyne Viens – 25 points (11g, 3a)

The Bulls’, who had not lost a game since their regular season opener, just recently snapped their eight-game win streak with their only loss of the season coming against SMU on Sept. 29. SMU scored the game-winning goal 45 seconds into the match and USF could not recover to lose 1-0.
