PHILADELPHIA –
This weekend Temple heads to Ithaca, N.Y. for the Cornell Classic. Temple's first match will be against St. Bonaventure on Friday at 4:00 p.m. Temple concludes the classic against host Cornell Sunday at 3:00 p.m.

The win at Drexel last Sunday set the best start in program history. The program has not had a five-game winning streak since the 2000 Temple women's soccer team posted five straight victories. With a 5-0 record, Temple women's soccer holds the best start in program history, and also is one win away from tying the longest winning streak in program history which was set by the 1991 and 1995 women's soccer teams.
