The Raiders have the upper hand this season in the two squad's only matchup, as they defeated the Falcons 4-0 at Fitting Field on Sept. 28. Over the past six meetings the two schools have played numerous intense matches with MSOE holding a slight 3-2-1 advantage.
CUW looks to repeat on last year's meeting in the quarterfinals of NAC Tournament in which it downed MSOE, 1-0, behind junior Lauren Straehler's (Pewaukee, Wis.) penalty kick goal in the opening minute of the contest.
One characteristic of head coach Ryan Middendorf's team this season has been scoring, and scoring in bunches. CUW ranks 21st in the nation (DIII) with a 3.38 goals per match average, as of Oct. 23. The Falcons have scored three or more goals in nine matches this season, all victories.
Individually, Straehler leads the team with 15 goals and eight assists, while sophomore Hannah Brehmer (Eagle River, Alaska) has netted 11 goals of her own. This is also the sixth-consecutive season Middendorf has directed his program to double-digit wins.
