Women's soccer to take part in College of Charleston Cougar Classic

Sept. 13, 2007

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - JU women's soccer will take part in the College of Charleston Cougar Classic this weekend, taking on host College of Charleston at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and UNC Wilmington at noon on Sunday at the Patriots Point Athletic Complex.

"We are looking forward to the challenge that this weekend will offer," said JU head coach Chris Kouns. "Both UNCW and College of Charleston are quality opponents who have enjoyed great success in the past few years."

The Dolphins split their Kick Out Cancer Tournament games last weekend, recovering from a loss to Baylor on Friday with a 2-1 win over Coastal Carolina on Sunday.

Junior forward Keri Zwikker was involved in every Dolphins' goal over the weekend, scoring once and assisting the other three. Freshman midfielder Sian Senior scored the game-winner against Coastal Carolina with a long range blast. Against Baylor freshman midfielder Elizabeth Fink delivered a long distance goal of her own.

Freshman goalkeeper Lorna Brownlie earned the win against the Chanticleers, making six saves and improving her season record to 2-1.

UNC Wilmington earned a 2-0 win over College of Charleston when the two sides met on Sunday at UNCW Soccer Stadium.

College of Charleston (1-2) is led by their midfielders- junior Katie Brown and sophomore Chrissy Caruso. Caruso was the Cougars' leading scorer last season with six goals and one assist.

UNC Wilmington (2-0-1) is a strong defensive team and has recorded two shutouts in their three games this season. The forwards lead the way offensively for the Seahawks, with junior Kelly Renkin and sophomore Jenna Evans having five points a piece.

"Although we are still a bit banged up from the Indiana and Baylor games, we will put our best foot forward and hope the results will fall in our favor," Kouns said. "But no matter what happens, in terms of results, this is yet another opportunity to fine tune things for the Atlantic Sun Conference season which opens up in another two weeks."
