GREENVILLE, N.C. – The East Carolina women’s soccer team will open play in its first Conference USA  matches of the season when it hosts Colorado College on Friday, Sept. 27 at  7 p.m., before taking on Charlotte on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 2 p.m. Both matches will be played at the ECU Soccer Stadium.

The Pirates (3-4-2) are coming off their fourth double overtime game of the season, after suffering a 1-0 setback in its final non-conference match of the season at High Point last Friday evening.

Junior goalkeeper Saundra Baron has been a big reason why East Carolina has allowed just nine goals in its nine games this season. Baron has made 41 saves in just over 865 minutes in net, while accumulating a .820 save percentage and a 0.94 goals-against average.



Freshman Kelsey Reeves and junior Stephanie Seagrave lead ECU with two goals apiece on the season, while Reeves ranks second on the team with 11 shots taken. Redshirt junior and C-USA Preseason Watch-List choice Lexi Miller leads the team in total shots (12) and shots on goal (6).
