Women's Soccer Games of the Week (8/29-8/30)


#2 UCLA vs #8 North Carolina, Friday, 10 pm ET 

UCLA got off to a nice start, winning both of its games by a 3-0 margin over Maryland and UC Irvine. The Bruins have been so dominant that goalie Katelyn Rowland has not had to make a save yet this season. Sam Mewis has two goals so far. Some more crazy stats include corner kicks (UCLA 24, opponents 0), shots (44, opponents 1) and shots on goal (23, opponents 0).

North Carolina, on the other hand, got off to a rough start. It opened the year by losing to then-No. 8 Stanford 1-0 in overtime, before defeating Ohio State 1-0. Like their opponents, the Tar Heels have some great statistical advantages. They've out-shot their opponents 39-16 and out-cornered those teams 14-3. Putting pressure on the untested UCLA goalie will be key for UNC.


#6 Notre Dame vs. #15 Texas Tech, Friday, 7:30 pm ET

Notre Dame got off to a fast start last weekend, scoring three goals in each of its games against Illinois and Oakland. Lauren Bohaboy and Morgan Andrews have both gotten off to great starts for the Irish. Andrews has three assists, while Bohaboy has a team-leading two goals. 

Texas Tech had its first game cancelled on Friday, but rebounded to rout Oral Roberts Sunday 5-0. The Red Raiders dominated from the start, outshooting their opponents 16-2 in the first half, before doing the same in the second half, but this time with a 15-0 tally. In all it was a 31-2 shot advantage. Alli Murphy set a school record by handing out four assists on Sunday.


#16 Portland vs. #4 Stanford, Saturday, 10 pm ET

Portland went on the road to face two ACC opponents last weekend and walked away with a 1-1 record after losing to Florida State 1-0 and defeating N.C. State 2-1. The Pilots proved to be a second half team, as they scored both goals in the second half against the Wolfpack. Danica Evans scored both goals.

Stanford had quite an amazing weekend, defeating both North Carolina and Duke. The Cardinals shut out both national powers, defeating UNC 1-0 in OT and Duke 2-0. Despite the results, the team was out-shot 25-23 and goalie Jane Campbell has nine saves.
