Scouting No. 11 Sheridan

  • After finishing 2017 with a 5-5 record, the Bruins have improved across the board this season. In six matches, Sheridan has surpassed its entire 2017 season total.
  • Zoe Derkach is leading the Bruins offensively, recording nine goals in six matches – the third highest total in the league.
  • Savanna Wood is one of the top keepers in the league and enters Wednesday's matchup 6-0, with a .900 save percentage, allowing two goals against.
  • The Bruins are 1-11-1 all-time at Humber, with their only win coming in 2004.

Previous Meeting
Humber completed a perfect season with a 5-0 win over Sheridan last year. Claudia Piazza scored two goals for the Hawks, while Vanessa Fiore recorded her eighth clean sheet of the season.

959 And Counting
Humber has not allowed a goal in a program record ten-plus regular season matches – a span of 959 game minutes.

Share the Wealth
Humber has scored 36 goals this season off the boots of 12 different student-athletes. Since 2010, the Hawks have averaged ten goal scorers each season.

Rank and File
Humber opened the season as the ninth-ranked program in the country. After a 6-0 start to begin the '18 campaign, the Hawks have moved up to the fourth spot and are currently the highest ranked program in the province.

Scoring Overload
The Hawks are on pace to score 60 goals this season which would shatter the program record from 2000, where Humber scored 48 goals in ten matches. Its scoring average of six goals-per-game would also be a new a program record, beating the 2011 mark of 4.8 gpg.

Defence Wins Championships
The Hawks boast the top defence in the province, averaging one shot on goal per game.

Chasing History
Humber's dynamic scoring duo of Giulia Zanardi and Rebecca Spratt continue to climb up Humber's all-time career scoring list.
