GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - For the first time since Aug. 31, the Green Bay (2-3-1, 0-1) men's soccer team will play a contest on its home field. The Phoenix hosts SIU-Edwardsville (5-2-0) Tuesday, Sept. 18 at Aldo Santaga Stadium at 7 p.m. Both teams enter the contest looking to avenge losses suffered Sept. 14 as Green Bay fell 2-1 in its Horizon League opener at Detroit (3-4-0, 1-0) while SIUE was shut out 2-0 at No. 16 Indiana (5-1-1).

Tuesday's game is the first of two home games for the Phoenix during the month of September who recently wrapped up its longest road trip of the season. It will be a short visit for Green Bay as it heads to the Oregon State Tournament Sept. 21-23.

With a win over SIUE Green Bay would move to .500 on the season and 3-1 on its home field.

Green Bay continues to be led in scoring by sophomore Kirby Allen (Appleton, Wis.) who has three goals, one assist and seven points on the season. Alonso Flores (Chicago, Ill.) and Sam Krenzien (Wauwatosa, Wis.) have each added one goal while Whitney Browne (Brooklyn Park, Minn.) and Ahmad Bah (Brooklyn Park, Minn.) lead the Phoenix with 13 shots each.

Senior goalkeeper Ryan Wehking (St. Louis, Mo.) has not been in the net for the Phoenix since suffering an ankle injury Aug. 31 but anticipates returning to the team soon.

SCOUTING SIU-EDWARDSVILLE... The Cougars are ranked No. 25 in this week's College Soccer News Poll and No. 39 in the TopDrawerSoccer.com poll. SIUE is being led by forward Christian Volesky with three goals and 17 shots while Jared Tejada has registered two goals and two assists. With four shutouts on the season, the Cougars are ranked in the top 15 in the nation in the statistic while being backed by junior goalkeeper John Berner.

SIUE is tied atop the Missouri Valley Conference standings in the win column. Both of the Cougars losses have come on the road to nationally-ranked teams (Akron and Indiana).

ABOUT THE SERIES... Tuesday's contest will be the third meeting between these two teams with Green Bay owning a 2-0 record over the Cougars. Last season the Phoenix shut out SIUE 1-0 on its home field. Prior to last season, the teams previously met Oct. 8, 1993 in the Marquette Tournament in Milwaukee.
