The Raiders (2-4-1) are coming off of a Sunday home loss to Eastern Kentucky, while Milwaukee (5-1) dropped its first match of the year Thursday night with a 2-1 double overtime decision against Wisconsin. The Panthers have yet to play a match away from their friendly confines of Engelmann Stadium this season.


Wright State is led by Destiny Johnson and Olga Massombo, who each have two goals, while Massombo’s five points leads all players. Johnson’s 15 shots pace the Raider offensive attack.


Milwaukee began the fall as the preseason pick atop the Horizon League poll. The Horizon League tournament champions finished the 2021 spring season 9-2-1 overall and 7-1-0 in Horizon League play. The automatic NCAA qualifiers defeated Elon 1-0 in the first round of the NCAA Women’s Soccer Tournament, before falling to No. 1-seeded Florida State 3-0. The Panthers handed the Raiders a 3-0 loss in Milwaukee in the spring.
