THE SERIES
Babson and Simmons will meet for the eighth time on Sunday afternoon. The Beavers are 7-0-0 all-time against the Sharks, although the teams have met just once since 2001.

LAST MEETING
Sophomore Victoria Penta scored twice in the first 11 minutes of the match, and Babson built a three-goal halftime-lead before holding on for a 3-2 win on September 7, 2014, in Babson Park.

SCOUTING THE SHARKS
Simmons (0-2-0) is looking to rebound from a 2-0 loss to Wellesley on Saturday. Briana Hayes made seven saves for the Sharks, who were outshot 15-6 in the loss. Senior Greer Gilbert scored seven goals to go along with six assists last season, and is the team's top returning scorer, while senior Ali Berkman and sophomore Erin Montambault both scored six goals apiece in 2014.

SCOUTING THE BEAVERS
Babson (2-0-0) has won back-to-back games to open the season for just the second time since 2007 after Saturday's 1-0 win over Lesley. First-year Jessica Fernandes scored in the 63rd minute and classmate Elizabeth Mycock made one save to post her second consecutive shutout. Seven different players have contributed at least one point for the Beavers through two matches.

INSIDE THE NUMBERS
The Beavers have won 12 straight matches when scoring first going back to September 24, 2013.
