Marquette Soccer vs. Milwaukee Set for Thursday at 7:30
April 13, 2016
2016 Spring Schedule
The highly-anticipated match-up known to many is the 11th Annual Bob Summy Classico. Bob Summy was a respected and loyal supporter of both the Golden Eagle and Panther programs prior to his passing in 2005. Each year since his death the two teams have met in a spring friendly in his honor.
Marquette and Milwaukee have a storied history, meeting every fall for a chance to win the coveted Milwaukee Cup trophy. The Panthers hold the all-time series edge with a mark of 28-11-4 in regular season games, but the Golden Eagles are 2-1-1 over the previous four meetings and were able to retain possession of the cup last fall thanks to a 1-1 draw at Engelmann Stadium, which followed a 2-0 shutout win at Valley Fields in 2014.
Following Thursday’s contest, the Golden Eagles will have just two spring dates remaining, featuring the MKE Torrent on April 23 and UW-Madison on April 30. Both matches are scheduled to take place at Valley Fields in Milwaukee.
