The four-game road trip moved south the following week when the Huskies registered their fourth shutout of the season with a 1-0 victory over conference foe South Florida on October 7. Dulski’s nine saves against the Bulls allowed her to cement her name in the UConn record book moving into third place for all-time career saves. Dulski concluded her four-year stint with 255 saves. The Huskies ended the road trip with a 3-0 loss to No. 9 Marquette. Arriving back in Storrs for an October 14 game against Pitt, the Huskies were welcomed home by the largest home crowd of 2011 of 1,807 fans. Connecticut had the 20th highest attendance DI home attendance mark with an average of 1,073 per game. The Huskies treated the gatherers to a 1-0 win over the Panthers as Dulski registered five saves and Linda Ruutu (Espoo, Finland) scored the lone goal. It would be UConn’s last win of the season with West Virginia beating Connecticut 2-1 at home and the Huskies dropping a 2-1 decision at Providence. Connecticut controlled their postseason hopes, win on the road at Providence and advance or lose and go home. Traveling north to Providence with a 7-7-2 (4-4-2 BE) record and owning a dominant 27-1-1 all-time mark over the Friars the Huskies looked poised to stamp their ticket to the BIG EAST Tournament. However, PC forward Laura DiClemente would squash all chances of that scoring twice in the last ten minutes of regulation to end the game in Providence’s favor, 2-1. Her first goal tied the game at 1-1 on a foul kick at 80:59 before she connected on a ball which ricocheted from the post off of a corner kick with only 38 seconds remaining in regulation. The winning goal lifted the Friars to a 2-1 win over the Huskies. UConn had two Huskies honored by the BIG EAST with Schulmann being named to the All-BIG EAST Second Team and Riley Houle (Columbia, Conn.) being honored as a member of the All-BIG EAST Rookie Team and All-BIG EAST Third Team. Houle, a center midfielder, had a breakout freshman season being third on the team with seven points on three goals and an assist. Additionally, Dulski, Houle, Prendergast and Schulmann all were selected to the 2011 NEWISA All-New England Second Team.
