Series History: F&M meets Bryn Mawr for the 24th time in a series that the Diplomats have dominated with a 20-2-1 overall mark. The Owls haven't picked up a win since a 5-3 shootout back on Oct. 22, 1994.

In the last meeting neither team could find the back of the net, with both squads having to settle for a 0-0 tie after 110 minutes of play in Bryn Mawr back on Sept. 29, 2012.

A mix of terrific defense and solid goaltending by Amanda McGowan kept the Owls off the board.  McGowan stood tall in net, stopping all three shots she faced.

Last Week: Three intermittent goals in the final 10 minutes of regulation sent a back and forth contest into overtime where the Franklin & Marshall women's soccer team had to settle for a 3-3 tie against Ursinus on Saturday evening in Centennial Conference (CC) play.

The Diplomats entered half with a 2-0 advantage after goals from Spencer Plante in the fifth minute and Nicole Rynecki in the 22nd. However, the Bears responded by outscoring F&M 3-1 in the second half, including the equalizer in the 85th minute to send the contest into overtime.

Ursinus fired 15 shots on goal against McGowan, who finished with a season-high 12 saves that included four in overtime. The Diplomats combined for 12 shots, including six on net.
