UConn women’s lacrosse is back on the road but this time to take on the UMass Amherst Minutemen. The Huskies have brought their record to 0-4 after losing to New Hampshire, while the Minutemen have a 1-2 record, with two consecutive losses coming into this matchup.
In their last match against Boston College, the Minutewomen were led by four veteran players, which consisted of juniors Stephanie Croke, Kaitlyn Cerasi and Kiley Anderson and redshirt sophomore Emma Dotsikas. Anderson successfully contributed to 12 of the team’s 21 draw controls, while the four players scored a combined 10 of the team’s 12 points to end the game.
While the Minutemen seek to add another win to their record, the Huskies continue to seek their first win of the season. The Huskies proved just how versatile they can be in their single point loss against New Hampshire. Seven players managed to score as they put up a fight, not allowing New Hampshire to get an easy win. The Huskies generally start off strong, but ending the game is a challenge. However, they were able to score seven of their 12 points in the second half of their last game.
Goalkeeper Annie Carroll has a large role on this UConn team as an underclassman and is looked upon to capitalize on her position. Anna Costello is another player to watch. Costello stood out in the Huskies most recent matchup against New Hampshire, as she made two out of three of her shot attempts.
Olivia Miles, Sydney Watson and Lexi Kenneally are never short of a great game and will be players that will be looked upon to lead the Huskies to a victory.
The Huskies emphasize a team effort, so they look to get everyone involved on the field as they head to Amherst.
