GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – The Green Bay women’s soccer team will make the trip down I-43 on Wednesday to take on the Milwaukee Panthers at Engelmann Stadium at 5:30 p.m.

Despite the losing record, the Phoenix has played in several close contests, with six of their 14 matches settled by a goal and another four ending in draws. The result has been Green Bay narrowly being outscored by its opponents this season, 15-11.
