Men's Soccer Looks To Rebound Against Pittsburgh

Maggie Casey/MarquetteImages.com

Marquette dropped their last match to bring an end to their undefeated run to start their season. They head back out on the road to get back to their winning ways.

When last we checked in with the men's soccer team, they had just suffered their first defeat of the season at the hands of the nationally ranked Georgetown Hoyas. There's nothing wrong with losing a road match to a ranked team, but it's much better to go out and win your next one. Luckily for #5/#4 Marquette, Pittsburgh is waiting as tonight's opponent at 6pm Central time. The Panthers are 6-6-2 on the season, which sounds like an okay record, but they are 0-5-0 in Big East play, and all six of their losses have been in their last six matches.

Freshman Nick Wysong and junior Nico Wrobel are the top two offensive threats for the Panthers, as they've both scored five goals this season. They're also the only two Panthers to break into double digits in points. Sophomore Lee Johnston has seen most of the time in net for Pitt and while he struggles in goals-against average (1.65) and save percentage (.744), he does lead the Big East in saves with 67. Then again, Kristina Utley leads the Big East in saves on the women's soccer side, and we saw how Marquette treated her.

If you happen to be a Comcast subscriber in Pennsylvania or parts of New Jersey, you might be able to watch the match on the Pitt Panthers Television network or online via Comcast Fancast Xfinity TV.
