After taking sole possession of first place, the Liberty women's soccer will look to remain atop the Big South standings by facing Presbyterian on the road to start this week's play. To conclude the weekend, the Lady Flames will play Charleston Southern. It will be the team's final regular season game at Osborne Stadium.

After two shutouts this past weekend against Radford and Campbell, Liberty's backline enters the week not allowing a goal in last 199 minutes and 47 seconds of play. Liberty is on a historical run as this year's team has tied the school record for fewest goals allowed (1) in Big South Conference contests. In 2009, Liberty allowed one goal in six Big South contests. Liberty's 4-0-1 record also ties the 2009 squad for the best record after six games in the Big South play.

On Saturday, Liberty will play its final regular season game and honor its eight seniors: Tori Collar, Baylee Gillmore, Isabella Habuda, Ashleigh Hill, Jordan Kestel, Jennifer Knoebel, Bertha Martinez, and Sami Santos. The eight seniors have combined for 47 wins, a winning percentage of .641 and three straight Big South Championship appearances as they eye for their third straight NCAA College Cup Appearance.
