The Jacks have struggled so far this season, compiling a record of 1-5-2, and have yet to win a match on the road. Their offensive efforts have been spread out, as seven Jacks have contributed the teams’ nine goals. Lindsey Stoner is the only Jack with multiple goals, as she has scored three.
Senior goalie Katelin Talbert has started all eight of the Jacks’ contests. She has recorded a 1.42 goals-against average and 44 saves.
SF State has also struggled early in the season. The Gators will look to end a four-game skid as they head to San Marcos prior to facing the Tritons. They opened conference play 0-3, but were pitted against some of the conference’s top squads, as they began CCAA action against then-No. 25 Sonoma State and Stanislaus State (RV).
Katelyn Patterson leads the Gators offensively, as she’s scored half of the team’s goals this season (five of 10). In the net, Sommer Harrington has played the majority of the minutes, with a 1.80 goals-against average and 29 saves.
SHUTOUT AFTER SHUTOUT
The Tritons have shut out their opponents in eight of their nine matches this season, and their 0.889 shutout percentage ranks first in the nation (tied with Nova Southeastern). Goalkeeper Angelica Ramos holds a 0.217 goals-against average and a 0.923 save percentage, which rank third and fourth in the country, respectively.
