Series History: Franklin & Marshall's women's soccer team (5-5, 0-2 CC) enters the week looking to ride the momentum of two straight non-conference victories and to break a pair of lengthy winless streaks against two Centennial Conference (CC) powerhouses. 

Against Johns Hopkins, the Diplomats are seeking their first win since the 1997 season. The Blue Jays are the defending Conference Champion and enter with a 7-1-2, 3-0 CC record. F&M's last victory against Haverford (7-1-1, 2-0 CC) came in 2007 with a 1-0 shutout in Lancaster. 

Last Week: The Diplomats rolled to a pair of shutouts last week at home, blanking Lancaster Bible, 1-0, on Wednesday evening and following with a 2-0 win against Alvernia on Saturday. 

With just 1:18 separating F&M from overtime against Lancaster Bible, Emily O'Hara found the back of the net to deliver the Diplomats a thrilling win.

Among the Leaders: Leoni is tied for fourth among CC women's soccer players in shots with 31 and is sixth in the Conference with five goals. Her 10 points place her tied for ninth (5 G, 0 A). 

Career Leaders: Savidge continues to appear in the program record book for goals against average and currently places fifth at 1.22 (17 GA, 1,256 Min). 

Defender Sarah Mischianti has started 56 games during her time in Lancaster, placing her fourth all time. Megan Rubenstein '14 leads the list with 65 starts. 

Clean Start: The Diplomats are one of just two teams in the CC who have yet to be carded through the opening 10 games of the season. 

Drive to Five: F&M's march to five wins is the fastest for the program since the 2011 season when the Diplomats finished at 8-7-1.
