GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay (2-6-1, 0-1-1 HL) men's soccer team will look to bounce back and pick up points in Horizon League play as it hosts in-state rival Milwaukee (4-4-1, 0-0-1 HL) Wednesday, Oct. 3 at 7 p.m. at Aldo Santaga Stadium. The game will be filmed by Time Warner Cable Sports32 and be rebroadcast Thursday, Oct. 4 at 7 p.m.

Both teams enter Wednesday's contest as two of five teams looking for their first win in Horizon League play. Green Bay is coming off a 2-1 loss to Wright State Sept. 29 while on the same day the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee battled Loyola to a 1-1 draw in its conference opener.

Sophomore Kirby Allen (Appleton, Wis.) continues to lead Green Bay with three goals while Alonso Flores (Chicago, Ill.) and Sam Krenzien (Wauwatosa, Wis.) each have two goals on the year for the Phoenix. Senior Whitney Browne (Brooklyn Park, Minn.) leads the Phoenix with two assists and 23 shots. As a team, Green Bay is second in the league with 45 saves and one of five teams with two shutouts in the season.

Sophomore midfielder Laurie Bell leads UWM and is tied for second in the league with four goals and three assists. With a shots-on-goal percentage of 43.8, Bell is also 3-for-3 on penalty kicks this season. As a team, the Panthers lead the league with 151 shots and is second with 13 goals.  

Green Bay is 2-3 on its home field this season with wins over Northern Kentucky and Northern Illinois while the Panthers are 0-4-1 on the road at this point in the season.

ABOUT THE SERIES... Wednesday's game will be the 42nd meeting between the in-state rivals and the 36th battle for rights to the Chancellor's Cup. The Panthers own the series record 14-24-3 over the Phoenix while Green Bay has won three of the last four meetings. It will be the first time in three years Green Bay hosts Milwaukee with the last two meetings going to double overtime in Milwaukee.

A familiar face will be coaching the Panthers as former Green Bay coach Kris Kelderman is in his first year as head coach of the in-state rival Panthers. Kelderman's lone season with the Phoenix was during the 2011 campaign.
