PHILADELPHIA – In its fourth straight week at No. 21 in the national polls, the UConn women’s soccer team (13-2-1, 5-0-1 AAC) looks to extend its unbeaten streak to ten games on Saturday, Oct. 22 when the Huskies travel to Temple.

UConn closed out its regular season home schedule with back-to-back wins against UCF and USF. After shutting out UCF 3-0 last Thursday, the Huskies tallied another three goals in the 3-1 defeat of USF Sunday on senior day.

UCONN LEADERS
1. Stephanie Ribeiro – 41 points (15g, 11a)
2. Rachel Hill – 29 points (12g, 5a)
3. Maddie Damm – 4  points (1g, 2a)

Senior Stephanie Ribeiro (Pawtucket, R.I.) was named the American Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week for the third time this season after putting up a nine-point performance (3g, 3a) against the Florida opponents.

She now currently leads the nation in total points (41) and game-winning goals (8), is second in assists (11) and is also tied for first in total goals (15).

Senior goalkeeper Emily Armstrong (Collegeville, Pa.), who has earned every start in goal for the Huskies this year, added two more wins and a shutout to her repertoire this season. She has seven shutouts on the year with 65 total saves, a 0.80 goals against average and a .833 save percentage.

SCOUTING THE OWLS
Record: 3-13, 0-6 AAC
The Series: 3-0-0, UConn leads
Last Time Out: Oct. 2, 2015 | Storrs, Conn. | UConn wins, 1-0

Temple is currently riding a seven-game losing streak and is still looking for its first conference win of the season. The Owls have notched only three wins this season against Delware State, Rider and NJIT, only one of which was on their home pitch.

TEMPLE LEADERS
1. Gabriella McKeown – 8 points (3g, 2a)
2. Kayla Cunningham – 5 points (2g, 1a)
    Sarah McGlinn – 5 points (2g, 1a)
4. Morgan Morocco – 4 points (2g) 

Most recently, the Owls were shutout back-to-back by USF and UCF both at the Temple Sports Complex. Temple battled out a grueling 1-0 loss to USF in double overtime, where the Bulls’ game-winning goal came in the 102nd minute.

Sophomore Jordan Nash has seen the majority of minutes in net for the Owls, starting in 15 out of Temple’s 16 matches. She has totaled 90 saves on the year with a 1.41 goals against and a .811 save percentage.

UP NEXT…

The Huskies close out their 2016-17 regular season slate with two matches on the road, beginning with Cincinnati on Thursday, Oct. 27 followed by East Carolina on Sunday, Oct. 30.
