Women's soccer fights for a SunTrust River City Rumble Barrel point
With just one game remaining on the regular season slate, the JU women’s soccer team will look to end the year with its best conference record since 2000 when the Dolphins face cross-town UNF tonight at Hodges Stadium at 7 p.m. in another installment of the SunTrust River City Rumble.
The Dolphins (11-4-2, 7-1-1 A-Sun) have already secured the number one seed for the A-Sun Championship and will be looking to secure their first regular season title since 2000 with a win over the Ospreys (7-9-0, 6-3-0) and a Florida Gulf Coast draw or loss against Stetson on Saturday.
JU is currently riding a five match winning streak with its lone conference loss coming at the hands of Mercer, 1-0. Sophomore forward Lisa Hensley sits atop the Dolphin points (20) and goals list (7) while redshirt-junior midfielder Liz Fink is pacing the team with seven assists. Junior goalie Alexa Rooney has been dominant between the pipes during conference play, boasting a 0.11 goals against average while making 38 saves.
“We’re looking forward to getting back on the field tonight,” said JU head coach Brian Copham. “I’m very proud of the work we’ve done thus far but we’re not finished. We still have team goals left to accomplish and this is always a great, high-intensity rivalry game so it should be a great night for soccer.”
UNF has won five of its last seven matches and has dropped all but one match by just one goal this season. The Ospreys have put together their best season in A-Sun play since 2007 and are just one win away from setting a school record for most A-Sun wins in a season.
