Junior defender Jen Ludemann and the Seahawks open Colonial Athletic Association play this weekend with road contests at Delaware and Drexel
WILMINGTON, North Carolina - The UNCW women's soccer team opens Colonial Athletic Association play this weekend with a pair of road contests against Delaware and Drexel.

The Seahawks start the weekend Friday with a 7 p.m. matchup versus the Blue Hens before traveling to Philadelphia Sunday for a 1 p.m. matinee with the Dragons.

Live stats will be available for both games and can be accessed by clicking on the live stats link at the top of the page.

UNCW makes its league debut with a 2-6 overall mark after suffering identical 1-0 setbacks to North Florida and Western Carolina in the Hilton Garden Inn Mayfaire Invitational last weekend at the UNCW Soccer Stadium.

Despite averaging more than 11 shot attempts per contest, the Seahawks struggled to find the back of the net during non-conference play, scoring just five times in their eight non-league matchups.

Junior Amanda Holmes continues to lead the team in scoring with three points (1 G, 1 A) while four players are tied for second with two points apiece. In goal, junior Caitlin Hunter has started all eight games for UNCW and has fashioned a 1.25 goals against average to go along with a .811 save percentage and one shutout.

Delaware begins league play with a 4-3-1 record after a pair of one-goal victories over Army and Delaware State last weekend. Senior Amy Pickard paces the Blue Hens lineup with eight points (3 G, 2 A) while junior Melissa Pennington (2 G, 1 A) and sophomore Chelsea Duffy (2 G, 1 A) compliment the attack with five points apiece. Senior Breanna Stemler has started all eight games between the pipes for Delaware and has posted a 1.05 goals against average and .742 save percentage to go along with two shutouts.

Drexel opens conference play at 2-4-2 overall following road shutout losses to Rider and Wagner last weekend. Senior Jenna Lindsay leads the Dragons in scoring with seven points (3 G, 1 A) while three players are tied for second with three points apiece. Sophomore Victoria Troccoli and freshman Eve Badana have split time in goal for the Dragons in the early going, combining to post a 1.30 goals against average, a .771 save percentage and one shutout.  

UNCW remains on the road after its contests against Delaware and Drexel as it wraps up its three-game road swing Sept. 29 with a 7 p.m. kickoff at Old Dominion.
