PAINESVILLE, Ohio- Following a loss earlier this week, the men's soccer team at Lake Erie College will be back in action on the road at Walsh University on Sunday (Oct. 2) afternoon.
Coach's Brenner's Take: "The players continue to play at a top level. We were unfortunate to not score at ODU and come away with the 3 points but the guys' belief is still very high. We know Walsh will be well organized and that we will need to come to play. I'm excited to see how the players bounce back after two days of solid training sessions."
