Seniors Deanna Colarossi and Julie Morrissey are the driving forces behind the Massachusetts women’s soccer team’s offensive output recently.
The Massachusetts women’s soccer team faces Maine on Friday and will try to avoid a letdown after its upset victory against Boston University last weekend.
After dropping their past two games, UMass wants its offensive production as well as its defensive unit to step up as it takes on Brown Thursday. Both Minutewomen victories have come via shutouts.
Ever since new coach Ed Matz took over for the Massachusetts women’s soccer team, he’s been having the Minutewomen play a much faster pace. The change in strategy is a big reason why UMass currently has six goals on the season.
The Minutewomen earned their first victory of the 2010 season against UVM Sept. 3, defeating the Catamounts 4-0. Meghan Collins, Deanna Colarossi, Kayla Austin and Kelsey Anderson all found the back of the net for UMass.
