Men's Soccer: On Senior Night, the #1 Huskies took on the Georegtown Hoyas in a crucial Big East Blue Division showdown. However, in spite of outshooting GU 18-8, UConn managed only ascoreless draw. Sure, we had plenty of opportunities. A lot of shots seemed to sail just wide or just high. We also nearly allowed a last-second goal (literally) but it sailed just over the bar as time expired. Bad luck for us tonight. Let's hope this two-game winless streak doesn't become a trend. The Huskies are still in second place in Blue Division with 14 points and are one point ahead of Notre Dame and Providence for the last bye. Marquette has 18. The Huskies will face the Golden Eagles Wednesday at 7:30 PM. That game is on WHUS and All-Access.

Women's Soccer: A heartbreaking finish to the season for the Huskies. Jessica Shufelt gave the Huskies a 1-0 edge for much of this contest, but ultimately, they surrendered two goals in the final nine minutes to lose 2-1. Needing only a draw to advance to the Big East Tournament, it looked like the Huskies would get it done, But Laura Diclemente scored at 80:59 to tie it, and again with 38 seconds left to win it. Once again, bad luck for us tonight.

Women's Ice Hockey: Finally, some good news! UConndefeated Maine yesterday, 3-0. Sami Evelyn, Taylor Gross, and Christine Bauer all netted goals for the Huskies. Nicole Paniccia started in goal after relieving Alexandra Garcia yesterday. She made 32 saves and did not allow a goal. I would not be too surprised if she started from here on out. Next up, the Huskies will be in Syracuse for two non-Conference games Friday and Saturday. Friday will be at 7:00 PM and Saturday at 4:00 PM. This was our first win of the year, improving us to 1-5-2, and 1-1-0 in Hockey East.

Men's Ice Hockey: The Huskies fell 5-0 to Merrimack in a non-conference game. For the first 19 minutes, it looked like it would be close as it was 0-0. But Merrimack scored a goal and kept them coming. But they're the #12 team in the nation so this was hardly unexpected.


Field Hockey:
The day has finally arrived. UConn vs. Syracuse. Winner wins the Big East regular season title. But it looks like Louisville is going to get the #4 seed, thus making it less illustrious than we first thought. Of course, Syracuse gets to host the tourney either way, so we'll be looking for revenge from last year when they came to us. The winner of the Big East Tournament will also likely host an NCAA Regional. If they're the #1 seed in the Big East Tournament as well, they almost certainly will. So let's hope we win this game. It will be on All-Access at noon. Next weekend, we head to Rutgers on Friday at 3:00 to wrap up Big East play, then face Princeton Sunday, October 30th at 2:00 PM to wrap up the regular season.


Women's Volleyball: Huskies are in Georgetown today. Video is available on the Hoyas' website. Next up, the Huskies will host Notre Dame and DePaul on Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM, respectively.
