WORCESTER, Mass. – The Holy Cross women’s soccer team will hit the road Sunday to take on Brown University in Providence, R.I.
The Crusaders will be looking to bounce back after a 2-0 loss to Bryant on Thursday. Head coach Casey Brown will also be looking at it as a way to get the team ready for conference play that will begin at the end of next week.
“This is a very important match for us,” Brown said. “As it is our last non-conference game before we begin Patriot League play. We must not only continue to be organized and stingy defensively, but convert more opportunities that we are now beginning to create. Brown will be a strong side, and we feel this will be a great test for us on the road as we prepare for a stretch of away conference games.”
