LA JOLLA, Calif. - After suffering a loss to Humboldt State Friday and playing to a draw with Sonoma State Sunday, the UC San Diego women's soccer team will be looking for rebound wins this weekend in the second half of its four-match road stretch.

The Tritons' offense demonstrated its potential in the first four matches of 2010, recording 12 goals, but in the two contests last weekend UCSD mustered one score. With 13 different Tritons already registering points this season, head coach Brian McManus will expect the team's balanced attack to emerge once again.

Annette Ilg leads UCSD in points and goals, with three scores so far in 2010. Lisa Bradley, Gabi Hernandez and Alyssa Newcomer have contributed two goals apiece. Currently, the Tritons lead the conference in shots (103) and corner kicks (48).

UCSD holds an overall record of 3-2-1 and 1-2-1 mark in the California Collegiate Athletic Association. The squad's two opponents this weekend, Cal State Monterey Bay and San Francisco State, stand at opposite ends of the North Division standings. CSUMB is 1-5 overall this season and 0-4 in league play while SFSU holds marks of 3-2-1 overall and 2-2 in the CCAA.

The Otters of CSUMB, through their first six matches, have been outscored 14-3. Marlina Massagli, Natalie Argueta and A.J. Cibulsky registered the three CSUMB goals. The squad has employed the use of two goalkeepers, with Graciela Holguin playing 358 minutes and Andrea Davis recording the other 181. This week's matchup marks the seventh all-time meeting between the Tritons and Otters, who will kick off at 12:30 p.m. UCSD holds a 6-0 record against CSUMB.

SFSU played to an 8-8-4 record in 2009 and the Gators have matched that .500 mark in conference play this season by going 2-2 in the CCAA, including wins over Chico State and Cal State L.A. In last year's conference opener, SFSU defeated the Tritons 1-0 in La Jolla. Seniors Carly Bliss and Myriah Johnson have combined to record 11 of the Gators' 18 points in 2010. The Gators and Tritons will kick off at 2 p.m. Sunday, with UCSD entering the match with a 9-3-2 advantage in the all-time series.

The Tritons return home to host 14th-ranked Cal State San Bernardino on Oct. 1 at 7 p.m.
