The Boston University field hockey team (0-2) will aim for its first win of the young season on Friday (Sept. 4) when it makes the cross-state trip to Amherst to face Massachusetts (1-0) at the UMass Invitational at Garber Field. Game time is set for 2 p.m. The Terriers will return to UMass on Sunday (Sept. 6) to take on No. 9 Iowa.

The Terriers and the Minutewomen last met in 2007, when BU posted a 2-0 road victory to take a 15-14-2 lead in the all-time series.

UMass, which opened its season last Saturday with a 1-0 victory over Providence, is the two-time defending Atlantic 10 champion. Senior Jill Powers, who tallied 21 points (9g, 3a) a year ago, scored the lone goal against the Friars. Junior Katie Kelly is the team's leading returning scorer from a year ago, having tallied 27 points (11g, 5a) in 2008. Sophomore goalkeeper Alesha Widdall was a member of the U.S. Junior World Cup team.

Despite dropping its first two games of the season last weekend at the Wildcat Classic at Northwestern, BU is coming off a great effort in a 2-0 loss against top-ranked Maryland, the defending national champion. The Terriers dropped a hard-fought 2-1 overtime decision to host Northwestern in their season opener. Redshirt freshman Leslie Zules scored a goal in her collegiate debut.
