Teams: UC Davis at Howard
Records: Aggies, 3-9; Bison, 0-9
Where: Greene Stadium – Washington, D.C.
When: Monday at 10 a.m.
Who to watch: Alyssa Cranska will likely be starting in goal for the Aggies. The sophomore goalkeeper followed her 10-save performance in the win against Central Connecticut during spring break with a career-high 16 saves Friday against Villanova.
Though the Aggies lost a nail-biter to the Wildcats in the second sudden-victory period, Cranska’s performance could establish her as the everyday keeper for the Aggies. She has been splitting time between the posts with fellow sophomore Kjersten Nordmeyer.
Did you know? The Aggies have six players with double-digit scoring totals through 12 games.
Christina Corsa and Gina Hoffmire had four goals apiece in the Aggies last game against Villanova, giving both players 20-plus goals on the season.
Britt Farquharson leads the Aggies with 27 goals. The other players with 10-plus goals are Hoffmire (22), Corsa (20), Patrice Clark (17), Molly Lapolla (12) and Jacklyn Taylor (10).
Preview: The Aggies are coming off of a heart-wrenching loss to the Villanova Wildcats. They will look to take out some frustration on the winless Howard Bison.
With only three games left before the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Championships begin on Apr. 23, the Aggies need something to build upon. Today’s game will be their last non-conference contest of the season.
