PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Looking to rebound from a 1-0 overtime loss on Tuesday, the Brown women's soccer team will cap off a busy weekend of home events as the Bears set their sights on the Penn Quakers on Saturday at 7 p.m.  The Bears lead the all-time series 13-10-3, however, the Quakers are 3-0-1 in the last four meetings between the two schools.

LAST TIME OUT

After a scoreless battle through regulation, Emily Weisman's header in the 98th minute propelled the visiting Crimson to a 1-0 non-conference victory over the Bears in overtime on Tuesday night.  The duo of Amber Bledsoe (Cincinnati, Ohio) and MC Barrett (Ithaca, N.Y.) combined to stop the seven of eight shots on goal they faced in the loss.

 

SCOUTING THE QUAKERS

Penn enters Saturday's game unbeaten in its last eight games (6-0-2) while rising up the Ivy League standings to second-place behind league-leading Princeton. The Quakers are led by senior forward Kerry Scalora's six goals and 36 shots while goalkeeper Kalijah Terilli (8-1-3) has seen the bulk of the duty in net, surrendering a paltry five goals in 13 games. 

 

JOCKEYING FOR POSITION

With identical 3-1-1 Ivy records, the Bears can overtake the Quakers with a win on Saturday night to gain sole possession of second place.  Brown seeks its fourth Ivy win for the season, a feat that hasn't been accomplished by the Bears since 2003.

 

UP NEXT

Brown will close out the regular season with a home-and-home set against Yale next weekend.  The Bears will visit the Bulldogs in New Haven on Nov. 8 before hosting them for Senior Day on Nov. 10 at Stevenson Field.
