SAN ANTONIO — UTSA will kick off a three-match road trip this weekend with tilts at Kentucky and Louisville. The Roadrunners will face the Wildcats at 6:30 p.m. (CT) on Friday before a 12 p.m. (CT) matchup with the Cardinals two days later.

UTSA (1-5) will look to snap out of a three-match slide this weekend in the Bluegrass State. Happy Orere-Amadu leads the squad and is tied for eighth in Conference USA with 16 shots, while Brianna Livecchi, Anissa Munson and Taylor Wingerden have logged one goal each this fall. In goal, Bubba Makela is tied for fourth in the league with 23 saves to go along with a 1.45 goals-against average.

Kentucky (4-1-1) enters the weekend riding a four-match winning streak that incudes triumphs against Eastern Kentucky, Toledo, Louisville and Dayton. The Wildcats, who were picked to finish second in the Southeastern Conference this year, return nine starters from last year’s squad that finished 14-8-1 and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Among the returners is Stuart Pope, who is tied with freshman Zoe Swift for the team lead with 12 points (five goals/two assists). Kayla King has played all but 28 minutes in goal this season and owns a 0.85 goals-against average.

Meanwhile, Louisville (2-2-1) will host Morehead State on Friday evening before welcoming the Roadrunners to town. The Cardinals, who were chosen to win the newly-created American Athletic Conference this fall, are led by preseason first-team all-conference selection Charlyn Corral’s 12 points (five goals/two assists). Christine Exeter and Casey Whitfield have two goals apiece, while Paige Brown has started every match and owns 19 saves in goal.

UTSA will be meeting both teams for the first time in program history.
