[SIENA WOMEN] Siena, the only undefeated and untied Division I women's team at 10-0-0, are getting it done the hard way. The Saints, who moved into the Soccer America Women's Top 25 for the first time ever this week, have won eight of their 10 games on the road.

The Saints opened the season with a 3-2 comeback win at Connecticut thanks to freshman Brittany Pfaff's golden goal.

Perhaps the most stunning win came two games later against another Big East power, Providence. The Saints trailed, 2-0, before rallying to win, 4-3, with four goals in six minutes late in the game against the Friars, who had not conceded a goal up until that point in four games.

Siena has had close games all season. It won both of its matches on the road last week by identical 2-1 scores at Manhattan and Saint Peter's to begin MAAC action. They give the Saints six one-game victories.

"It's a great accomplishment and recognition for our team to be recognized nationally," said Siena coach Steve Karbowski of the Soccer America ranking at No. 25. "This is something that the team can be proud of to be able to earn a great recognition such as this."

Siena finished second in the MAAC last season but fell in the quarterfinals of the conference tournament.

Pfaff got off to a fast start with five goals in her first three games and has a team-high six goals.

Junior Ashleigh Barone, one of four Saints named to the Preseason All-MAAC Team, is second with five goals and leads the team with four assists.

The Saints play five of their final eight regular-season games at home, beginning with Friday's match against Loyola (Md.), so they should be feeling good about things.

They are 17-2-2 at home the past two-plus years.
