Marquette Soccer vs. Milwaukee Set for Thursday at 7:30

April 13, 2016

2016 Spring Schedule

MILWAUKEE – The Marquette University men's soccer team has announced its make-up spring friendly with crosstown-foe Milwaukee is set for a 7:30 p.m. start at Valley Fields on Thursday, April 14. The two teams were scheduled to compete on Friday, April 8, but inclement weather forced it to be postponed.

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.
