UM Faces No. 6 Florida State Sunday on SUN Sports

Oct. 14, 2005

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami women’s soccer team will host sixth-ranked in-state ACC rival Florida State Sunday at 12 noon at Cobb Stadium in a conference match-up televised on the SUN Sports Network.

Coming off back-to-back wins over Maryland last Sunday and at Clemson Wednesday, the Hurricanes head into Sunday’s game with an overall record of 7-8-1 and a 2-5-0 in ACC play.

Miami will look to the continued hot play of redshirt sophomore forward Rebecca Tweneboah, who has accounted for each of UM’s last two goals, scoring the second goal in the 2-0 win over Maryland and the game-winner in the 104th minute of a double-overtime 1-0 win at Clemson. With the goal against the Tigers, Tweneboah netted her team-leading fourth goal of the year.

Freshman midfielder Bryn Heinicke is tied with Tweneboah for the team lead in points (10) and tops the UM roster in shots (35), shots on goal (16) and assists (4). Heinicke and freshman forward Paulelett Ricks-Chambers rank second on the team in goals, with both players recording three on the year.

The UM defensive efforts, led by the back line of senior Ashley Durkee, junior Kristen Chapman and freshman Corynn Carino, along with the play of sophomore keeper Lauren McAdam, have posted back-to-back shutouts.

McAdam ranks second in the conference with 5.43 saves per game while four of her six wins this season have been shutouts.

After a full week off, Seminoles travel to Coral Gables with an overall record of 11-2-0 and a 4-2-0 mark in conference play.

Sophomore forward Sel Kuralay leads FSU and ranks second in the ACC with 11 goals this season followed by junior midfielder India Trotter, who has eight on the year.

Sunday’s game will be broadcast on the SUN Sports Television Network with a one-hour tape-delay beginning at 1 p.m.

Tickets are just $5 dollars for adults and $3 dollars for children and senior citizens. The first 50 fans in attendance receive a free UM Soccer megaphone.
