Men’s Soccer Hosts Maranatha Baptist Bible on Tuesday

MEQUON, Wis. - Looking to add to their two-match winning streak the Concordia University Wisconsin men's soccer team hosts Northern Athletics Conference foe Maranatha Baptist Bible College on Tuesday at 4 p.m. at Fitting Field.

The Falcons (6-4-0, 2-0-0 NAC) are currently in a four-way tie for first place in the league with Dominican University, MSOE, and Aurora University. In their two conference victories they have outscored opponents by an 11-1 margin.

Sophomore Alberto Valle (Milwaukee, Wis.) leads CUW with seven goals, which is tied for the NAC lead. Junior Zach Lemler (West Bend, Wis.) has assisted on four goals, which leads the NAC. On the season the Falcons have outscored their opponents by a 27-15 margin, the second-highest in the league.

In the latest NCAA DIII rankings the Falcons are 13th nationally in goals (27) and 18th in assists (22). In addition, four different CUW individuals are ranked, with sophomore Alberto Valle (Milwaukee, Wis.) being ranked 28th with seven goals scored.

During CUW's last outing on Saturday it found the back of the net early, scoring two goals - both by junior Kyle Sytsma (Antioch, Ill.) - within the first eight minutes against North Central College. The defense went into lock-down mode after the Cardinals tallied a score in the 58th minute. In the end, the Falcons held a slight three-shot advantage during the 2-1 non-conference victory.

MBBC (3-4-0, 0-2-0 NAC) enters on a two-match losing streak, both conference defeats and shutouts. Austin Radke leads the Crusaders with five goals and Dustin Dolan has assisted on a pair of goals.

CUW continues its four-match homestand on Saturday at 1 p.m. against Aurora. The match is the first part of a doubleheader with the Falcon women's program at Fitting Field.
