SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. - The Seton Hall women's soccer team is back in action tomorrow, Friday, August 30 when they host Army at 3:00 p.m. in a matinee at Owen T. Carroll Field.

SHU will be looking to score its first win of the new season after coming back to tie Stony Brook, 2-2, last week and dropping a 1-0 result at LIU-Brooklyn on Monday.

Both SBU (America East) and LIU-Brooklyn (NEC) are reigning conference champions and NCAA Tournament teams from a year ago.

The Stony Brook game featured a pair of three-point performances from seniors Ashley Clarke (Paramus, N.J.) and Katie Ritter (Hagerstown, Md.) who each continued to ascend the program's all-time scoring lists in the process.

Clarke now ranks third in school history with 13 career assists and Ritter stands third with 17 goals and needs just one more point to enter become one of the top-five overall scorers the program has ever had.

The Pirates have been knocking on the door throughout the first two contests, outshooting their opponents by a combined margin of 42-20. SHU also enters the weekend atop the BIG EAST with 14 corner kicks to this point in the season.

On Friday afternoon, SHU will be aim to defeat Army for the first time, having been clipped by the Black Knights on the road in each of the last two seasons. On the flip side, SHU will ride a five-game unbeaten streak against the Hawks into their Labor Day showdown on the shore.

 Seton Hall is 12-3-3 in 18 all-time meetings with Monmouth.
