The College of Staten Island women’s soccer team is continuing its busy week this afternoon, hosting the Bears of St. Joseph’s College of Brooklyn in a non-conference tilt at the CSI Soccer Complex at 4pm.  The Dolphins are coming off of their first loss on the season, and will be looking to rebound today on their home pitch.

All-Time Series:  CSI leads 1-0
Last Year’s Result:  CSI won 10-0
Players To Watch (CSI):  Leading scorers Jennifer Cosenza and Krystina Rodriguez will look to get the Dolphins more offensive after Tuesday’s shutout loss to Kean.  Cosenza leads the team with five goals, while Rodriguez is tops with five assists.  Lauren Smith is third on the squad with 21 shots fired and she will be a catalyst in the middle today.  Defender Catherine Mulligan has been anchoring a stout back line that has allowed only one goal through over 650 minutes this season.
Players To Watch (SJC-BK): Five different goal scorers have tallied thus far for the Bears, who are being led by Christine Emigholz’s 10 shots taken.  She also leads the team with a pair of assists as well.  Christina Caruso has also played well and she will look to generate positive momentum for SJC.  Kristen Candelaria is the principal net minder for the Bears, sporting a .691 save percentage.
News and Notes:  This is only the second all-time meeting between the two schools, with CSI having taken a lop-sided 10-0 win a year ago here at the CSI Soccer Complex.  Jennifer Cosenza scored two goals in the win while sophomore Concetta Perito also tallied.  The Dolphins out-shot the Bears, 41-0, so SJC is hoping to close some significant ground.  Prior to the 1-0 loss on Tuesday, CSI had gone 592 minutes without yielding a goal, a program record.  SJC has been outscored 22-5 this season, but are coming off of their first win, a 3-0 strike over Yeshiva University.  The two teams share one opponent in Lehman College.  CSI defeated Lehman, 2-0, while SJC fell to the Lightning, 7-1.
