Senior Day

Prior to the start of Saturday's match, the Spartans will recognize the seven graduating players from the 2019 squad – defender Nicholas Bertrand, defender Kyle Lewis, midfielder Marques Manta, midfielder Chas Novitsky, forward Zachary Senft, midfielder Garrett Winter and midfielder Brian Woo.

The seven players have helped the Spartans compile 34 wins over the past four seasons, including a 16 win season in 2018 and it's first-ever appearance in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Championships.   With their contributions, the team has appeared in the United Soccer Coaches National Poll as high as No. 7 during the 2018 season, while consistently ranking among the top teams in the Great Lakes Region. In addition, the team has excelled academically, earning the United Soccer Coaches Team Academic Award in each of their four seasons at CWRU.

CWRU Spartans (6-7-4, 0-4-2 UAA)

The Spartans dropped a 1-0 contest to the sixth-ranked University of Chicago on Friday evening. Junior Seldon Magruder led the Spartans with five shots, while first-year goalkeeper Jackson Kallen made four saves throughout the match.

CWRU fell 2-0 to Washington (Mo.) University on Sunday afternoon in St. Louis. WashU scored both of their goals in the first half. The Spartans' best opportunity to score came in the second half, when Magruder took a shot at the 58:41 mark that was saved by the Bears goalkeeper. Marguder then collected the rebound and laced a shot that hit the post just four seconds later. Despite the score, CWRU held the advantage in shots (15-10) and corner kicks (6-3).

Carnegie Mellon Tartans (6-8-1, 2-4-0 UAA)

The Tartans fell 3-1 to Washington (Mo.) on Friday. CMU junior Nick Isham put in a goal in the first minute of the game when he settled service into the box by sophomore Jason Edmunds and turned to fire a volley with his left foot to the right side netting for his third goal of the season. However, the Bears went on to score three unanswered goals to claim the victory.

CMU dropped a tough contest on Sunday, as a late second-half goal by Chicago dropped the Tartans, 1-0. The goal for the Maroons came in the 79th minute when Kameron Boyle served a free kick that was headed in by Richard Gillespie.

Last season, Carnegie Mellon claimed the 3-1 victory over the Spartans in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. CWRU's lone goal came from junior Connor Weber in the 43rd minute.
