ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The No. 10 UCF women's soccer team is back on its home turf this weekend, kicking off a four-match homestand with its 7 p.m. matchup Friday against Houston before taking on Rice at 1 p.m. Sunday.
Exciting promotions are in store for the Black and Gold faithful this weekend. Fans will have a chance to enter a raffle Friday for four tickets to the UCF-Missouri football game on Saturday at noon. Sunday's afternoon game will serve as Knights for Youth Day. An inflatable for kids will be set up outside the main gate and following the game, the team will sign autographs.
The Knights (7-2-1, 1-1 Conference USA) are coming off last Sunday's 6-0 win at UAB, marking UCF's fifth shutout of the season. Heading into this weekend, the Knights are tied with Colorado College for the conference lead for shutouts.
UCF, which has ranked among the top-10 nationally for six-consecutive weeks, owns a 12-1-2 record all-time against this weekend's opponents. The Knights have never lost to Houston with a 6-0-1 mark and also hold the edge against Rice with a 6-1-1 record.
Houston (4-4-2, 0-0-2) is on a three-game unbeaten streak and holds a 2-3-0 record on the road this season. Junior Jasmine Martinez paces the team in goals (5) and points (19) while junior Cami Koski has been the go-to starter in goal with a 3-4-2 record.
Rice (5-4-2, 2-0-0) heads out on the road for the first time since Sept. 9 and enters the weekend riding a four-match unbeaten streak. Freshman Holly Hargreaves, the reigning C-USA Co-Offensive Player of the Week, leads the team in goals (6), assists (3) and points (15) while pacing the league in game-winning goals (4). Sophomore Amy Czyz, who was named to the All-Conference USA Third Team last season, is the C-USA frontrunner for saves with 51 this season.
Season tickets are available for UCF's remaining home games, beginning at $30. A complimentary soccer scarf comes with each purchase. The Gold Pass, which includes season tickets to all volleyball, men's and women's soccer, women's basketball, softball and track and field contests, is also available now.
