In what figures to be a defensive battle, Friday afternoon’s showdown pits two of this nation’s most dominant defenses against one another with advancement on the line. Both the Badgers and Knights rank among the top 10 in the categories of shutout percentage and goals-against average.

Wisconsin set a Big Ten record for shutouts in a season (18) last Saturday against DePaul.
 
In addition to the strength of both teams’ overall defense, two of the best goalkeepers will duel one another in net. With a school record 16 shutouts so far this season, Big Ten Goalkeeper of the Year Genevieve Richard competes against UCF’s Connie Organ on the other side of the pitch, who was awarded the American Athletic Conference’s Goalkeeper of the Year honor.
 
The meeting between the Badgers and Knights will mark the sixth ever, as UW leads the all-time series 3-1-1 overall. The match will also be the third time the two programs have met in the second round of NCAA tournament play.
 
In both previous postseason battles with the Knights, it was the Badgers who emerged victorious. The last matchup occurred during the 2009 season, as Wisconsin defeated UCF, 1-0, on its home turf at the McClimon Complex.
 
The winner of this Friday’s match will advance to face the winner of host and No. 1 seed Florida State or Northeastern. The resulting Sweet 16 game is scheduled for a 12 p.m. (CT) start Sunday in Tallahassee.
