GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - After falling to Detroit in a tough 1-0 home loss in the Horizon League opener Sept. 22, Green Bay (3-6-0) will travel to Wright State (6-2-3) and look to get back on track against a tough Raiders team on Friday. Kickoff is slated for 4 p.m. at Alumni Field.

Despite going 0-2 over the last two games, Green Bay has played impressive defense and competed well with successful teams. The Phoenix battled defending Missouri Valley Conference Champions Illinois State (6-2-2) evenly for 78 minutes of play before the Redbirds found the net a second time in a 2-1 loss on Sept. 19. In the Horizon League opener against Detroit (4-4-1) last Saturday, sophomore goalkeeper Katy Pilarzyk (Madison, Wis.) made a season-high eight saves in a 1-0 loss highlighted by strong defensive play on both sides.

Wright State enters the game on a three-game winning streak, highlighted by a 5-0 win over IPFW Sept. 24. The Raiders have just one loss over their last seven games. During that time, the team has outscored its opponents by a combined score of 13-5.

The Phoenix will return home to face Indiana State in a nonconference noon game Sept. 30, and then travel back to Ohio Oct. 3 to face Cleveland State in a 4 p.m. duel.

SOLID DEFENSE: Although 0-2 in its previous two games the Phoenix defense, often made up of four freshmen players, has shown significant improvement from the beginning of the season and has held high-scoring teams in check. With eight saves against Detroit, Pilarzyk now has 37 on the season.

TOUGH PLACE TO PLAY: Wright State holds a 13-5-3 all-time lead over Green Bay, including a 7-1-3 record at home. The last time Green Bay won at Alumni Field was Oct. 16, 1994.
