Women’s soccer hosts Campbell on Thursday
The JU women’s soccer team looks to stay in the win column on Thursday as the Dolphins host Campbell at 7 p.m. for their only match of the week.
The Dolphins (6-7-1, 3-3) are currently tied for fourth place in the Atlantic Sun standings, which may be harder to understand than the Electoral College in the upcoming Presidential election. Five teams have three wins in conference play, while the bottom half has four teams with two wins on the heels of the others.
“Campbell is a good team,” said JU head coach Brian Copham. “They are similar to us because we are both fighting for every point we can get right now in the A-Sun standings. I look forward to seeing if we can carry over the momentum we gained from the win last Sunday.”
JU enters the week after a 1-0 victory against Florida Gulf Coast on Oct. 12 at the Ashley Sports Complex. Sophomore forward Emme Graham scored the game-winning goal in the first half from assists by senior forward Keri Zwikker and freshman forward Jessica Hurtado.
Freshman goalie Alexa Rooney added eight saves for her fifth shutout of the season, which puts her in a tie for fourth place on the JU single-season record list.
The Camels (2-3-1, 3-6-3) head to the First Coast following a scoreless tie to East Tennessee State on Oct. 11 and a 3-1 win against USC Upstate on Oct. 9.
Offensively, the Camels are led by sophomore Kaili Terry who has three goals and an assist through 12 matches. Sophomore goalie Boomie Luck has 62 saves and earned three shutout wins between the posts.
