Hurricanes Travel to Face Virginia Tech

Sept. 28, 2005

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Looking to snap a three-game slide, the University of Miami women’s soccer team will head to Blacksburg, Va. Thursday to take on ACC rival Virginia Tech in a conference match-up at 7 p.m.

The Hurricanes travel to Virginia Tech for their first ACC road game with an overall record of 5-5-1 and an 0-2 mark in ACC play after dropping their first two conference games of the season – a 1-0 double-overtime loss to NC State last Thursday and a 4-0 loss at the hands of top-ranked North Carolina Sunday in Coral Gables.

Freshman midfielder Bryn Heinicke leads the Hurricanes’ offensive attacking, topping the UM roster in points (9), shots (28), assists (3) and shots on goal (12). With three goals apiece, Heinicke is tied with freshman forward Paulelett Ricks-Chambers for the UM lead in goals.

Coming off a school record-tying 13-save outing against UNC, sophomore keeper Lauren McAdam heads into Thursday’s game as the ACC’s leader in both saves (59) and saves per game (5.90).

Virginia Tech hosts Miami with an overall record of 4-5-1 after opening conference play with a pair of road losses last week.

Ashley Stinson leads the Hokies with three goals and six points while four different Virginia Tech players have recorded assists this season.

The Hurricanes and Hokies have split all five previous meetings with the all-time series at 2-2-1 for both teams. Miami’s two losses to Virginia Tech both came last season in Blacksburg.
