This week’s UND.com Game of the Week features the Notre Dame Men’s Soccer team matching up against BIG EAST rival, the Marquette Golden Eagles, on Wednesday, Oct. 24. This key BIG EAST Blue Division showdown is slated for 7 p.m. (ET) at Notre Dame’s Alumni Stadium. The match will feature two top-10 teams as the Fighting Irish are ranked seventh in this week’s Soccer America poll and the Golden Eagles are fourth.
Wednesday’s game is a must win for the Irish as postseason play gets closer and every game counts. The Golden Eagles are currently 14-1 overall and 5-1 in the BIG EAST standings, and Notre Dame is 12-3 overall, 4-2 in the BIG EAST.
Notre Dame heads into Wednesday’s match up after a big win over Providence on Saturday, Oct. 20. Forward Ryan Finley made his Senior Day one to remember, completing the hat trick as the No. 7 Notre Dame men’s soccer team defeated Providence 3-0 in BIG EAST play. All three goals were scored in a span of 9:13 in the second half.
[Sidenote:] I personally think the ND Men’s soccer team has the best IRISH coach ever … check out this video. Does this guy have the best Irish accent ever?
