Series History: Women's soccer heads into the final week of the regular season with a 6-8-1 overall record and are looking for a strong finish to close out 2016. Franklin & Marshall plays host to a duo of Centennial Conference (CC) foes in Gettysburg on Wednesday and Dickinson on Saturday. 

Against Gettysburg, the Diplomats are seeking to end a seven-game slide with F&M's last victory coming in 2008. The all-time series with Dickinson has gone the other way for F&M as the Diplomats lead at 24-14-1. 

Last Week: Kyra Judge's 63rd-minute tally broke a scoreless tie and handed F&M a 1-0 win against Washington on Saturday afternoon. 

Nicole Savidge (5-6-1) turned back the only attempt on goal she faced to collect her sixth shutout of the season. Shots belonged to the Diplomats by an 11-4 margin, including a 6-2 edge in the second half.

Among the Leaders: Reanna Leoni is tied for fifth among CC women's soccer players in shots with 40 and is tied for eighth in the Conference with five goals. Her 11 points place her in 12th (5 G, 1 A). 

Savidge is tied for third among netminders with six shutouts, while her 65 saves rank second. 

Record Book Watch: Savidge continues to appear in the program record book for goals against average in a career and currently places fifth at 1.09 (21 GA, 1,726 Min). 

Defender Sarah Mischianti has started 61 games during her time in Lancaster, placing her third all time. Megan Rubenstein '15 leads the list with 65 starts. 

Savidge's six shutouts on the season are just two shy of the single-season record, held by Erin Roy (2008) and Amanda McGowan (2011).

Continuing to Improve: The Diplomats six wins on the season are the most for the program since the 2011 season. 

Senior Day: Before the start of the Dickinson game on Saturday, F&M will honor its six-member senior class of Sarah Armato, Jeanette Berlanga, Mary Franco, Kate Kerr, Mischianti, and Savidge.

Clean Start: With just two games left to go, the Diplomats remain as one of only two teams in the CC who have yet to be carded through 15 contests.
