Oct. 4, 2006

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - After spending last week on the road, the Jacksonville University women's soccer team returns for two key Atlantic Sun matches at the Ashley Sports Complex starting on Thursday.

The Dolphins (5-6-0, 0-3-0) host Campbell at 7 p.m. before finishing the week against Gardner-Webb on Saturday with kickoff set for 2 p.m.

"We are very excited to return to the friendly confines of the Ashley Sports Complex," said JU head coach Chris Kouns. "To this point, we have shown well at home and we will look forward to bringing ourselves out of our small slump with the support of our crowd behind us."

Last week, the Dolphins dropped matches to Kennesaw State and East Tennessee State. Sophomore Keri Zwikker scored her third goal of the season against the Owls, while Emilie Howland recorded a goal in the final minutes against the Buccaneers in Johnson City, Tenn.

"It is important for us to come out and play our game this weekend," Kouns said. "We have allowed ourselves to veer from the things we do best in last few games. We need to move the ball quickly, find feet and be sound in our defending. If we do those things, I am confident that we will be a tough team to handle."
