Women's Soccer Travels to No. 18 Kansas

Sept. 16, 2006

ORLANDO - The UCF women's soccer team focuses on returning to its winning ways when it visits No. 18 Kansas for a 2 p.m. ET kickoff on Sunday.

After recording a four-game unbeaten streak, the Golden Knights (3-3-1) dropped their previous two matches - most recently a 2-0 loss at No. 2 Florida State on Wednesday night.

UCF continues to find chances to score and have outshot their opponents by an 88-78 margin. The offense has been balanced as the Golden Knights have earned opportunities out of the back and the midfield in addition to the attack.

Meanwhile, the team's defense has also been solid not allowing any goals in the run of play in the past two games. After making six saves against the Seminoles, junior Jennifer Manis (Pensacola, Fla./Washington HS) still owns a 1.25 goals-against-average and a .757 save percentage.

The Jayhawks enter the weekend at 4-1-0 with a match against Pepperdine on Friday before they meet the Golden Knights. KU recently upset No. 12 Duke, 4-3, at the UAB Nike Classic and made their first appearance of the season in Soccer America's Top 25 as a result.

Freshman Monica Dolinsky leads Kansas on the attack with four goals and an assist for nine points, while sophomore Julie Hanley, playing all five matches in goal, has posted a 1.39 goals-against-average.

The Jayhawks own a 2-0-0 advantage in the all-time series against the Golden Knights. The two teams met most recently during the 2003 Kansas Invitational, where KU earned a 1-0 shutout.
