BOSTON—After starting the first four games of conference play with an unbeaten record, the Boston University women’s soccer team heads to Lafayette in the hopes of continuing its streak.
Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. at Oaks Stadium and will be aired live on the Patriot League Network.
The Terriers (5-5-3, 3-0-1 PL) look to redeem their 2-1 loss against Harvard by keeping their conference unbeaten streak alive against the Leopards (5-4-1, 0-3-1 PL), who are in search of their first Patriot League victory.
A WIN WOULD…
• Extend BU’s conference unbeaten streak to five games.
• Maintain the Terriers’ perfect record against the Leopards (2-0-0).
• Freshman McKenna Doyle reclaimed her spot as the team’s leading point scorer after netting two goals against Loyola Maryland. She now has nine points (4g, 1a) this year, which ranks eighth in the Patriot League. Her four goals also ranks seventh in the conference.
• Doyle was named Patriot League Rookie of the Week following her performance, BU’s second weekly award winner of the season. Rachel Bloznalis was named Defender of the Week earlier in the year.
• Alyssa Parisi has been excellent in net this season and currently ranks second in the league in goals against average, allowing just under one per game this season (.97). She also has a .782 save percentage.
• The Leopards come into the match exhausted as their last five contests have been decided in extra minutes including the last two in double overtime.
• Lafayette is also on a four-game winless skid dating back to the start of conference play.
• Kaelin King leads the team with 14 points (6g, 2a). She ranks second in the league in shots per game (3.60) and first in points per game (1.40). She has also scored the second-most goals this season among PL players.
• Katie Brannigan is one of the league’s top helpers as she ranks second in assists per game (.40), having tallied four so far this season.
• Danielle Sedillo and Kelly O’Brien split time in net for the Leopards. Sedillo has made the majority of the starts (8 of 10) and has a 1.41 goals against average and .609 save percentage while O’Brien has a 0.93 GAA and .833 save percentage.
• The Terriers lead the short all-time series, 2-0-0.
• The pair first met in 2013 when BU joined the Patriot League.
• Last season the Terriers won a 6-1 decision at home.
NEXT TIME OUT
• BU returns home in one week for senior day on Saturday, Oct. 17.
• The Terriers are set to face Lehigh at 2 p.m. on Nickerson Field.
• The game will be aired on the Patriot League Network.
