Green Bay is looking for its first Horizon League win Friday at Milwaukee.

GREEN BAY, Wis. ( - The Green Bay women's soccer team (2-7-3, 0-3-1 Horizon League) is set to begin a three-match road swing on Friday against in-state rival Milwaukee (7-5-2, 3-1-0 Horizon League). Game time is slated for 7 p.m. at Engelmann Field.

Milwaukee, which has won 10 consecutive regular season conference titles, owns a 20-6-1 advantage in the all-time series against the Phoenix. The last time Green Bay defeated the Panthers was on Oct. 17, 2003 at Santaga Stadium.

The Panthers also enter tomorrow's match coming off a loss to Butler. The Bulldogs handed Milwaukee a 1-0 loss on Sunday despite being outshot by the opposition 16-2. The Panthers are currently in a three-way tie for first place in the league standings.
