Utes Prepare for Two Home Matches

Quickly: The Utes return home to host Northern Arizona Fri., Sept. 26, at 4:00 p.m. The Utah-UTEP game is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. on Sun., Sept. 28. Both games will be played on Ute Field. It is Parent's Weekend at the U.

Recent Results: Utah was 0-2 at the Aggie Soccer Classic in College Station, Texas, last weekend. The Utes were defeated 4-0 by No. 5 ranked Texas A&M and 3-2 by No. 21 ranked Baylor. Freshman Sarah Moss scored the Utes two goals. She was assisted by freshman Lorrie Tipton and sophomore Bernie Hogan.

Utes to watch: Freshman forward Sarah Moss, a native from Libertyville, Ill. (Libertyville HS), scored two goals on three shots in the Ute's 3-2 loss to Baylor. Moss ranks second on the Ute team in overall points scored with six (two goals and two assists).

Opponent Information: This outing marks the Utes' first match-up with Northern Arizona and UTEP. In their inagural season, the Lumberjacks are 2-4-0 with wins over Utah State and Grand Canyon. UTEP comes to the U. with a 3-4-1 record.

Coach Amy Freeman Winslow: "We played well in the Aggie Classic. Texas A&M scored in the last ten seconds of the first half and that shocked us a bit. We lost sweeper Amanda Schmutz when she collided with an A&M player and our defensive strategy shifted. Baylor led the first half 2-1, but we came back and tied it. Our freshman combo of Sarah Moss, Lorrie Tipton and Brandy Apodaca that got us back into the game. "This weekend is Parents' Weekend. We're playing at home, the players' parents are coming to watch and we're psyched. We have never played Northern Arizona or UTEP and we're looking for two good games."
