Greenville, S.C. – The Furman women's soccer team will face its first road test of the 2018 season on Thursday when it travels to Clinton, S.C., to face the Presbyterian Blue Hose in a 7 p.m. contest at Martin Stadium.

Furman opened the season with a 3-1 victory over Richmond last Friday and an 8-1 triumph over North Greenville on Monday night to begin the year at 2-0-0 and move to 13-1-1 in its last 15 matches at Stone Soccer Stadium on the Furman campus.

Nine different Paladins have scored at least one goal through the first two matches of the season and three different players have earned time in goal. Junior Amanda Baker and freshman Erin Houlihan have paced the Paladins with two goals apiece, while junior Caitlyn Reilly has accounted for a goal and four assists.

Thursday's match, which will be streamed on ESPN+, will mark the 13th all-time meeting between the Paladins and Blue Hose with Furman holding an 11-1-0 series edge. Presbyterian, however, claimed a 2-0 victory in last season's meeting at Stone Stadium.

Following Thursday's match, Furman will be idle until it returns home to host Kennesaw State on August 31, at 7 p.m.
