ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - The UCF women's soccer team will be hanging around Orlando for the next several weeks as the team digs into the bulk of its home schedule beginning Friday against Stetson at 7 p.m.

Six of the Knights' next seven matches will take place at the UCF Soccer Complex. Following Friday's contest, fans can stick around for an autograph session with the team.

UCF enters the weekend fresh off two wins after outscoring North Florida and Middle Tennessee, 7-1, at the USF Soccer Classic in Tampa. It was a team effort as 10 Knights tallied points throughout the weekend, including five different goal scorers.

Friday night's matchup pits UCF against former Atlantic Sun foe Stetson for the first time since 2004. The Knights hold an 18-0 record against the Hatters, including an 8-0 mark at home.

Stetson is in the middle of a five-match road trip, most recently coming off a win at South Carolina State. Four different Hatters are responsible for the team's four goals this year while Amber Grose leads the team in points scored with four assists. Stetson returns nine starters from last season's 3-13-1 squad.

On Sunday, UCF will meet Brown at 1 p.m. for the first time in history. Brown is the fourth program this year that the Knights have met for the first time (Hawaii, Washington, Middle Tennessee).

The Bears welcome back 23 letterwinners from last year's squad, including eight seniors. They return their top three scorers from the 2012 team that went 7-9-1 overall. Phil Pincince, the 13th-winningest coach in NCAA Division I history, is in his 36th season at the helm of Brown's program. He owns the title of the longest standing coach in women's soccer today.

The popular soccer scarf will be sold on site. For $30, fans will receive a special scarf, which will serve as one-general admission seat to all 2013 regular season home matches. The GOLD Pass, which includes one general admission seat for all home men's soccer, women's soccer, volleyball, softball, women's basketball and track & field events, is available for $90.
