The veteran duo will provide work-rate & scoring for the UWS East side

Kate HowarthNow that the Summer 2016 schedule in the East Conference of United Women’s Soccer (UWS) has been finalized for the New England Mutiny, the organization and their fans can look forward to a more competitive season in the new national pro-am league. With that in mind, the Mutiny would like to welcome back the veteran forward duo of Kate Howarth and Rachel Ugolik, as their work rate and scoring punch will help this year’s team battle for the UWS East title.

“It's great to have Kate and Rachel returning to play for the Mutiny again this season,” said New England Mutiny owner Joe Ferrara, Jr. “Individually, they are both very dynamic and with this year being their third consecutive season playing together, we are looking for that continuity to pay dividends in Coach Abele's system.”

Howarth served as team captain last season for New England and led the team in goal scoring (7) as the team wrapped up the Power 5 Division title with a 8-2 overall record. In fact, the three-year veteran is now one of the all-time leading scorers in Mutiny history (23 goals, 8 assists). The former Miami Hurricane star first joined the New England organization during the 2012 WPSL Elite season. Her exploits that season (9 goals, 4 assists) landed her a spot with the Boston Breakers of NWSL in 2013.

“We are all looking forward to this league,” said Howarth. “Higher standards and better competition is always the goal and I think this league will provide that for both college kids and players trying to make it to the next level. Looking forward to competing and winning!”

Rachel UgolikUgolik - also a three-year Mutiny veteran - is coming off her strongest season at Providence College last fall for Head Coach (and former Mutiny assistant) Sam Lopes. The Hamden, CT-native started all 22 games for the BIG EAST runner-ups, notching five goals and three assists. Rachel was named the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Week and ECAC Division I Offensive Player of the Week as she tallied seven points over two wins vs. regional foes Brown and Boston College.

“I’m very excited to be back with this team and even more excited about the new league!,” said Ugolik.

New England will play five (5) home games in total this season and the full slate is available on the “Schedule” page of the team’s official website. Season tickets are on sale and are available for $30/$20 (adult/youth) and includes a free Mutiny t-shirt. The team has also set up a “Donate a Ticket” program where folks can donate a season ticket to a local youth soccer player.
