WILMINGTON, North Carolina – The UNCW women’s soccer team puts its home winning streak on the line Friday as it hosts league newcomer College of Charleston in a 7 p.m. Colonial Athletic Association contest at the UNCW Soccer Stadium.

Friday’s game will serve as the program’s annual Molly Maid Pink Game in support of breast cancer awareness. Pink UNCW t-shirts will be on sale with all proceeds going to benefit the Pretty in Pink Foundation, which provides financial assistance and support to under-insured and un-insured North Carolinians with breast cancer

UNCW (6-7-0; 1-2 CAA) enters Friday’s matchup with the Cougars undefeated in each of its last seven appearances on its home pitch, dating back to the final three contests of the 2012 season. The Seahawks have out-scored its opposition by a 20-7 margin in those games, including an 11-5 edge in its four home games this season.

The Seahawks picked up their first league victory of the season in their last outing, posting a 2-1 victory over Towson at the UNCW Soccer Stadium on Oct. 4. Sophomore Maddie McCormick tallied a goal and an assist while sophomore Katrina Guillou notched her third game-winning goal in five contests to lead UNCW to the one-goal victory. In goal, freshman Carolyn Huddy made seven saves against the Tigers to pick up her first collegiate victory.

With five games remaining in the regular season, Guillou continues to lead the team in scoring with 15 points (6 G, 3 A) while McCormick is just behind her in second with 14 points (5 G, 4 A). Junior Stephanie Bronson, who picked up an assist on Guillou’s game-winning goal against the Tigers, third with 11 points (5 G, 1 A).

College of Charleston (2-10-0; 0-3 CAA) heads into Friday’s matchup in search of its first league victory after suffering a 2-1 setback at home to Towson last weekend. Senior McCallie Jones leads a Cougars offense that has scored just 11 goals in 12 games with seven points (3 G, 1 A) while fellow senior Victoria Fichman ranks second with four points (2 G). Head Coach Christian Michner has relied upon a trio of keepers this season, led by senior Eli Sarasola, who has started nine games and recorded 41 saves and a .672 save percentage in those contests.

Friday’s game will serve as the 10th meeting between the two programs and the first as conference foes. The Seahawks hold a 6-2-1 edge over the Cougars and have won three straight in the series, including a 2-0 victory in their most recent meeting on Sept. 7, 2007 at the UNCW Soccer Stadium.

UNCW returns to the road next weekend as it faces James Madison (Oct. 18) and William & Mary (Oct. 20) in Colonial Athletic Association action.
