Husky Sports Roundup, September 16th, 2011


Football: Big game today as the 1-1 Huskies host the Iowa State Cyclones to bounce back from a disappointing loss to Vanderbilt that frankly, we should have won. Kick off is at 8:00 PM on ESPN2 live from Rentschler Field. For those going to the game, arrive early for a special 9/11 tribute.

Women’s soccer: The Huskies improved to 4-3-0 by winning their Big East opener 1-0 over Syracuse. Jessica Dulski had her third shutout on the season, an impressive total for the senior. 11:49 in the game, Danielle Schullman made it 1-0, to put the Huskies up for good. Wind and were definitely a factor for both teams with limited opportunities. Next up the Huskies travel to Queens to face St. John’s at 1:00 PM on Sunday. That game will be streamed by St. John’s at here.

Men’s Soccer: Two New England matchups for the #2 Huskies who go on the road this week. First, today at 7:00 PM they travel to Boston University to face the Terriers. Streaming is available on BU’s website. Next, the Huskies will travel to face #11 Boston College at 7:30 PM on Tuesday on the road. That will be a major road test for the Huskies. It will also be the annual Goal Patrol road trip game.

Women’s Volleyball: The Huskies will get underway in Blacksburg, Va in the Hokie Invitation as they take on Chattanooga (today, 4:00 PM), Virginia (Sat. 1:00 PM), and Virginia Tech (Sat., 7:00 PM). The Huskies are 6-4 this year. After finishing up the pre-season tournament run around, the Huskies will travel to Cincinnati and Louisville on September 23rd and 25th to get Big East season unerway.

Field Hockey: The 5-0 and #4 Huskies open Big East play on Saturday afternoon vs. Villanova at noon. That game will be on Huskies All Access. On Sunday afternoon at 2 PM the Huskies will host the #8 Boston College Eagles. Another critical matchup among ranked teams, and we could move up in the rankings since #1 UNC plays #2 Old Dominion today and one of those teams has to lose.

That’s all for now. Go Huskies!
