SAN ANTONIO — UTSA will return home for a pair of matches this week against CSU Bakersfield and Louisiana Tech at the Rec Sports Complex.

The battle of the Roadrunners will kick off at 7 p.m. on Thursday and UTSA will honor Amanda Ortegon, Lindsay South, Kimber Chudej, Valentina Lefort and Maria Jose Rojas as part of Senior Night festivities. The Roadrunners then will take on Louisiana Tech in a Western Athletic Conference (WAC) match at 1 p.m. on Sunday.

UTSA (2-8-2, 1-1-2 WAC) is coming off Sunday's 2-1 victory at San Jose State. Rojas and freshman Simone Boye both scored to give the Birds a 2-0 lead and they held off the Spartans for their first league triumph of the season. Freshman goalie Katarina Pus tied a season high with nine saves and she leads the WAC with 72 stops.

CSU Bakersfield (4-8-2) is coming off a 1-0 overtime loss to Utah Valley on Oct. 2. The Roadrunners, who are playing as an independent and will join the WAC next fall, are 1-5-1 away from home this season. Sam Pena leads the squad with 10 points on three goals and four assists, while Erica Shelton has recorded seven (three goals/one assist). Goalkeeper Tori Ornela has allowed 17 goals with 56 saves in a dozen starts for a 1.37 goals-against average.

Louisiana Tech (10-1-3, 1-0-1 WAC) will play at Texas State on Friday night before making the trek to the Alamo City on Sunday. The Lady Techsters sport the league’s most potent offense with 32 goals. Emily Brennan ranks third in the circuit with six winners and five other players have at least three. The defense also has done its part, as Louisiana Tech also leads the circuit with nine shutouts and just five goals allowed overall.

The Roadrunners will be facing both squads for the first time in program history.
