Womens Soccer Set for DePaul
CHICAGO — After posting a 3-2 comeback win over Bucknell in its season opener, the St. Bonaventure women's soccer team (1-0-0) takes on host DePaul (1-1-0) in its next test at Wish Field at Cacciatore Stadium at 4 p.m. today.
The Bonnies picked up their win in exciting fashion last Saturday, using two goals in a four-minute span to overcome a one-goal deficit for the win. Anna Cunningham notched the game-winner and had an assist and senior classmate Courtney Bosse registered five points on two goals and one assist to lead the Bonnies. Cunningham, who has 17 career goals and ranks 12th in career scoring, picked up her 20th career assist to move into a tie for third on the all-time assists list, while Bosse now ranks 13th on the scoring ledger with 20 goals and 10 helpers. Sophomore keeper Kathryn Kerman made six saves to help preserve the win.
On the other side, DePaul opened the season with a 2-0 whitewash of host Iowa before suffering a 2-1 double overtime loss to Northwestern on Sunday. The Blue Demons posted their best record since 2003 last season and are picked to finish sixth in the eight-team Big East National Division. DePaul returns 10 of 11 starters from last year's squad, including 20-point scorer Tara Strickland (7g, 6a).
