BOCA RATON, Fla. - The Florida Atlantic University women's soccer team will honor seven departing players - Asta Arnadottir, Madison Caldwell, Lucy Carter, Kelly Harris, Sammy Lujan, Alex Mastrobuono and Maddie Pung - before their final regular season home match, as the Owls host UTEP Sunday afternoon at FAU Soccer Stadium.
Owls' Week in Review
The Owls (8-7-2, 3-4-1 Conference USA) split decisions last weekend on the road, recovering from a 1-0 loss Friday to WKU to defeat Marshall Sunday, 3-0. Ebba Blomqvist and Mary O'Hara each tallied a goal in the first 1:50 of the latter match, and the result drew FAU even with the Thundering Herd with 10 points (and gives the Owls the head-to-head tiebreaker) for eighth place on the league standings board.
