Women's Soccer Games of the Week (9/4)


#8 Florida at #2 Florida State, Friday, 7 pm ET, ESPN3

Florida had a rough weekend last week, going 1-1 after losing to Oklahoma 2-1 and defeating Oklahoma State 4-0. One person who didn't have a rough weekend? Savannah Jordan. Jordan was back to her scoring ways, picking up a tally in each game. The Gators are going to need her scoring if they're going to knock off the Seminoles on the road.

FSU had the same schedule as the Gators, but they defeated both teams, Oklahoma State 2-1 in 2OT and Oklahoma 1-0. Dagny Brynjarsdottir picked up her second and third goals, scoring one in each game. Thus far, she has three goals, while five teammates have one apiece. 


#12 Georgetown at #5 Virginia Tech, Friday, 7 pm ET

The Hoyas had an offensive explosion last weekend, defeating NC State 6-0 and Towson 5-0. Daphne Corboz and Vamessa Skrumbis had huge weekends last week for the Hoyas. Skrumbis scored two goals in each game and added an assist in the NC State game, while Daphne Corboz has two goals against Towson and a goal and three assists against the Wolfpack. The team allowed one corner kick to each team, while racking up a total of 20 in the two games.

Like their opponents, Virginia Tech also had a nice offensive showing, sweeping Akron (3-0) and Ohio State (3-1) on the road. Alani Johnson and Candace Cephers were the stars for the weekend, scoring two goals each. The two, along with Bria Dixon have scored three goals apiece on the young season.


#6 Penn State vs. #15 North Carolina, Friday, 5 pm ET, ESPN3

The Nittany Lions have gotten off to an undefeated start, including a 3-1 win over a ranked West Virginia squad. Mallory Weber is the team's leading scorer, knocking in three goals on five shots. Megan Schafer, who has come off the bench in each game, has two goals.

North Carolina's offensive woes continued last week, as the Heels failed to score a goal in either game they played. The games resulted in a 0-0 tie with top-ranked UCLA and a 1-0 loss to No. 21 Pepperdine.
