The UConn Women’s Lacrosse team will host the Quinnipiac Bobcats this Saturday at the George Sherman Family Sports Complex.
Connecticut is heading into Saturday’s game with a 0-1 record courtesy of the No. 12 UMass Amherst Minutewomen last Saturday. The Minutewomen handed the Huskies a 7-5 loss on their home turf. Connecticut rallied late from a four goal halftime deficit, but still came up two goals short in the end.
Connecticut’s senior midfielder Lauren Kahn led the rally with four goals and an assist. Kahn was involved with every goal the Huskies scored in the game. The senior was very productive in the offensive zone to say the least.
Kahn will need to have a big game against the vulnerable Quinnipiac defense this week. The last time UConn played Quinnipiac the Huskies won in a dominating fashion by a score of 20-6, exposing the Bobcat defense. Kahn netted two goals and six assists against the Bobcats in last year’s March matchup.
Connecticut will need Kahn to have a big game Saturday if they desire to climb back to .500.
