The Old Dominion women's soccer team returns home this weekend after a season-long five game road trip to host Colonial Athletic Association opponents Hofstra and Drexel. After going 2-3 on the trip, they will welcome in Hofstra for a game tonight at 7:00 p.m. and Drexel will travel to Norfolk on Sunday for a 1:00 p.m. contest.
ODU is currently riding a two game winning streak after getting their first conference win over UNC-Wilmington on Sunday, before a 3-0 shutout victory against Radford on Wednesday.
The Lady Monarchs are now 4-8-1/1-2-1 as they look to make a push for the Colonial Athletic Conference Championship Tournament. They are currently seventh in the conference and only the top six teams qualify for the post-season. They have five league games remaining, including the two this weekend.
Hoftra (9-2-1/2-1-0) is sixth in the conference with wins over Drexel and George Mason. They are ninth in the Northeast Region and feature the second highest scoring offense in the CAA with 7.58 points per game. Friday's contest will be their first matchup with ODU.
Drexel (2-9-1/0-2-1) visits Tidewater this weekend looking for their first conference win as they play William and Mary on Friday and Old Dominion on Sunday. They are last in the CAA in scoring but goalkeeper Shallen Marzi leads the league with 5.91 saves per game. This will be the first ever meeting between the Dragons and Lady Monarchs.
