Syracuse was picked to finish last in the ACC preseason poll. This week’s opponent — South Carolina - is ranked top 20 in the country.

I was a bit more concerned with UConn women's soccer getting a tie on the road against Army in their opening game of the season than I was in UConn beating up on Syracuse. I didn't have the idea that Syracuse had a good team this season. Somehow I doubt the tie against Army, even if it was on the road, is much to be proud of.

In the UConn women's soccer home opener, South Carolina wins 3-0. For the first 60 minutes or so, the game looked pretty even. After South Carolina got its first goal, they definitely looked like the better team. Still, for the first 60 minutes, UConn held its own against a top 5 team.

Last Sunday UConn women's soccer blasted UMass Lowell 5-0 in a home game. Today UConn women's soccer went on the road to Northeastern and dominated the game statistically and in time of ball possession, but ended up losing 1-0.

UConn WSOC beat Creighton on the road 2-1

Athletic Director David Bennedict is passing along incorrect information here. Adyson Duran is not an addition from a UConn club team. Duran is one of the three injured Goalkeepers that he referenced, she is back from her injury. See the attached article that was written after the game against Central Connecticut that talks about the injured goalies:


<During warmups, starting goalie Kaitlyn Mahoney broke her wrist, which gave sophomore MaryKate Ward the start. UConn was already thin at the position with freshman Adyson Duran out with a hamstring injury, so Rodriguez knew they needed an emergency plan in case the worst-case scenario happened and Ward went down, too.>

Also, Adyson Duran is mentioned in this article on the UConn Athletics website about this season's incoming freshmen class that was posted this past spring:


<ADYSON DURAN
Goalkeeper | Momence, Ill. | Momence High School

Rodriguez on Duran: "Ady is a technically sound goalkeeper who has great movement and positioning. She has good timing on crosses and has a dominating presence in the air. We are excited to have Ady on campus and watch her development. She will be a great addition to our UConn goalkeeper union."

Why UConn: "I chose UConn because it felt like home, and it offers everything I ever could imagine as my dream school. Academically, UConn has an amazing kinesiology program and as an athlete, I felt a strong connection between the staff and players."

Before UConn: Played club for Eclipse Select SC … also played softball.>

And we are surprised that AD David Benedict misspeaks just to appear in the know most of the time?

In the Big East preseason poll, UConn was picked to finish No. 6, and Creighton No. 7 in the standings. Still, a conference road win for this team is definitely a good thing.
