AMHRST, Mass. – The University of Massachusetts women’s soccer team concludes its three-game road trip this week with a pair of games in Pennsylvania at Pittsburgh tomorrow and at Robert Morris on Sunday.

Pittsburgh Road Trip
UMass will play both matches in Pittsburgh, Pa. this week as part of a three-game road stretch for the Minutewomen. UMass won its only meeting over Pittsburgh at Rudd Field with a 2-1 victory. The matchup on Sunday marks the first between UMass and Robert Morris.

Last Time Out
The Minutewomen split a pair of matches last week with a 1-0 shutout win over UAlbany before a 2-1 loss on the road at Fairfield on Sunday. Ella Curry put home the game-winning goal from the spot in the win over the Great Danes on Thursday, slotting her penalty kick into the right side of goal after Chandler Pedolzky drew a foul in the box moments before. On Sunday, UMass held a one-goal lead until the Stags equalized in the 78th-minute before scoring the game-winner in the 82nd.

The Olympics!
Lauren Bonavita scored an Olimpico goal in Sunday’s match at Fairfield, scoring directly from the corner spot to beat the halftime whistle by just three seconds. The goal marked the 22nd career goal for the graduate student.

No Goal Zone
Junior goalkeeper Megan Olszewski picked up her third career solo shutout in Thursday’s season opening win over UAlbany. Olszewski recorded seven saves in the win, including six in the first 18 minutes of play to keep the Great Danes without a goal. In 135 minutes in goal this season, Olszewski has nine saves with no goals surrendered.

Looking Ahead
The Minutewomen return home to Rudd Field for their next three matches against in-state competition following the pair of road games this week. The homestand begins with a match against Boston College on Thursday, Sept. 1 at 4 pm before hosting UMass Lowell for a 3 pm kickoff on Sunday. The stretch concludes on Thursday, Sept. 8 at 4 pm against Boston University.
