MILWAUKEE -- The Marquette University men's soccer team (7-5-4, 1-3-4 BIG EAST) celebrates Senior Night as they play their final BIG EAST Conference match of the regular season against DePaul University (4-9-4, 1-5-2) Friday, Nov. 7 at 7:05 p.m. Central time at Valley Fields.

Friday's match will be live streamed on All Access. Fans can also follow Marquette men's soccer on Twitter (@marquettesoccer) for real-time updates.

Friday's match marks the final home and regular season contest for the Golden Eagles. The program will be celebrating Senior Night by honoring Charlie Lyon, Sebastian Jansson, Axel Sjoberg, Luis Trude and Brady Wahl during a pre-game ceremony on the pitch.

MU currently ranks seventh in the BIG EAST table, one point behind Butler for the sixth and final spot in next week's 2014 BIG EAST Men's Soccer Championship. In order to clinch a spot in the league tourney, Marquette must beat DePaul and Butler must either lose or tie at Xavier Friday night.

DePaul comes to Milwaukee in ninth place in the BIG EAST with five points. Last week, the Blue Demons fell at Providence (Oct. 29) and against Creighton (Nov. 1), both by a score of 2-1 and were eliminated from postseason contention.

Marquette leads the all-time series against DePaul 23-4-1 dating back to 1982, but the Blue Demons have won four of the last five.

Last time out, Marquette tied Seton Hall, 3-3, in South Orange, New Jersey. Both C. Nortey and Louis Bennett II registered three points (1g, 1a each). John Pothast also netted a goal.

All students who attend Friday's match will be able to make s'mores during halftime, sponsored by the Blue & Gold Fund. Students will also have the opportunity to pick up their 2014 Student Fanatic basketball t-shirt at halftime.
