UConn women’s soccer plays its last game of the regular season at East Carolina on Sunday. If the Huskies win this game, they will be the AAC regular season champions. This season the regular season champion gets a bonus in that they also get to host the entire post season AAC tournament. This would be great news for UConn. The Huskies definitely play better at home where they tend to score more goals than they do on the road in the AAC, where they have survived to win (or in one case tie) some tight games where they did not necessarily have the better of the overall play in the field. Anyway, if UConn beats East Carolina and goes on to win the AAC tourney, I would expect that the Huskies would host the first round of the NCAA tourney. The big news this season for UConn women’s soccer is that the domination of the Husky offense by the goal scoring talents of seniors Rachel Hill (13 goals, 4 assists) and Stephanie Ribeiro (17 goals, 11 assists). It has pretty much been a typical year for Hill, who has been a 10+ goal scorer every year since she arrived at UConn. Last year Hill was named to the NSCAA All American First Team. The arrival of Hill to UConn four years ago gave UConn the consistent goal scorer that the team had been lacking since Kristen Graczyk and Jessica Gertsen last played for the Huskies in 2004. As for Ribeiro, last season she had a very nice season with 7 goals and 8 assists and was named to the NSCAA All American Third Team. This season, Ribeiro’s offensive production has simply exploded into having a simply remarkable season. Once again, you have to go back to at least the days of Graczyk and Gjertsen for when UConn last had such a dynamic goal scoring duo. The offensive fly in the ointment for this season is that no other player on the team has more than 1 goal.
