No. 15 Marquette Hosts No. 23 Providence Wednesday
Oct. 21, 2014
MILWAUKEE -- The No. 15 Marquette University men's soccer team (7-3-1, 1-1-2 BIG EAST) and No. 23 Providence College (8-2-1, 3-0-1) meet for a BIG EAST Conference match Wednesday, Oct. 22 at 7:05 p.m. Central time at Valley Fields.
Wednesday's showdown is a rematch of the 2013 BIG EAST Men's Soccer Championship final. MU defeated the Friars 3-2 at PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania to claim its first-ever conference tournament title. The contest between MU and PC was originally scheduled for Sept. 27, but was postponed due to travel issues for the Friars.
Last time out, MU tied Villanova 1-1 (2OT) this past Saturday at Valley Fields. Louis Bennett II tallied the equalizer with a minute left to send the match into overtime. MU remains unbeaten at home in 2014 and has not lost at "The Valley" in its past nine matches dating back to last season.
There will be a Birds of Prey march to Valley Fields leaving from Sobelman's at Marquette at 6:20 p.m. The first 100 students that come to the march will receive a free Birds of Prey Fanatic shirt.
