Ursinus at Haverford (Women's Soccer)
The first-place Bears (4-0, 7-1-1) make the short hop to Haverford to face the Fords (2-1, 5-4) in a key CC showdown. Ursinus knocked off perennial power Gettysburg last weekend, while Haverford toppled defending CC champion Johns Hopkins. The Fords hold an 8-1-1 all-time lead over the Bears including wins in the last two matches. Ursinus' lone win came in 2003 (2-1) at home. The Bears lead the Conference in scoring (3.11 goals per game), led by Jess Gunzelman with five. Haverford GK Lindsay Festa is tied for the CC lead in shutouts (5).

Johns Hopkins at Swarthmore (Women's Soccer)
The Blue Jays (2-1, 6-4-1) and the 18th ranked Garnet (3-0, 7-0) meet in a rematch of the 2006 Centennial title match under the lights at Clothier Field. Hopkins is 13-1-1 against Swarthmore since 1993, including four straight victories. The Garnet's triumph was a 2-1 overtime win at home in 2003. Swarthmore leads the Conference in goals allowed (1) and GK Lauren Walker shares the CC lead in shutouts (5). Hopkins' Kim Lane is second in the CC in assists (7).
