MEQUON, Wis. – The Concordia University Wisconsin Women's Soccer team begins a busy final week to the regular season with an important NACC match against MSOE Wednesday afternoon.

PITCH PASS
- Wednesday could go a long ways in determining a NACC Tournament bye. The Raiders and Falcons sit in second and third place in the NACC (as of Monday). Both are well alive for a potential NACC Regular Season Championship, but at the very least the winner Wednesday will have a decent shot at No. 2 seed and bye in the league tournament.

- The Falcons and Raiders are the last two NACC Regular Season Champions. CUW posted a 10-0 league record in 2015 while the Raiders went unblemished in NACC play last season. MSOE has also captured the last two NACC Tournament titles.

- CUW suffered its first home loss of 2017 this past Saturday in a non-league matchup with Elmhurst. The Falcons are 3-1-2 at Fitting Field this season.

- Both CUW (+16) and MSOE (+23) have been dominant in NACC play this season in terms of goal differential. Only Dominican (+26) has a better goal differential, while Aurora (+16) is tied with CUW.

- CUW will play four times over the next week, beginning with Wednesday's match. The Falcons visit Concordia Chicago Friday before hosting UW-Oshkosh in a non-conference tilt Sunday afternoon. CUW closes the regular season at Alverno on Wednesday, October 25.
