UConn Huskies Sports Wrapup, October 24th, 2011

It's still Sunday Night, but here we go. Exciting day, indeed.

Marie Elene Bolles scored the
game winner to lead the
 Huskies to victory
Field Hockey: The Huskies defeated Syracuse in Double Overtime, 3-2. They thus clinched at least a share of the Big East title and secured at least a share of the regular season title. They can clinch it outright by beatng Rutgers next Friday. The Huskies are now an amazing 15-1 on the season. The game was very exciting throughout. Cara Silverman got things started in the 14th minute off a Penalty Corner but the Orange scored two goals within two minutes of eachother early in the second half to go up 2-1. The Huskies bounced back, however, as Anne Jeute scored at 49:37 to even the game. It would go to overtime, and eventually in the second OT,  Jeute played a long ball into the circle and Marie Elene Bolles poked it home for the game winner.

Women's Volleyball: A tough loss for the Huskies today. They lost to Georgetown 3-2. The Huskies lost the first set but took the next two. But Georgetown won set #4 25-20 and #5 went 15-11 in favor of the Hoyas. So went the match. The Huskies are now 1-7 in the conference and 11-12 overall. Jordan Kirk had 15 kills while Mattison Quayle and Devon Maugle each had 14. Next up, the Huskies host Notre Dame and DePaul, next Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM.

Football: Gameday is only two days away (from Monday) as the Huskies will roll into Pittsburgh to face the Panthers. I'll write more on that tomorrow along this week's awars.
