Notes and Quotes
Butler Bulldogs (2-3-2, 0-1-0)
The Bulldogs opened up league play as they hosted Wright State at Carmel High School Sept. 24. The Raiders defeated Butler 2-1. This week, BU will make a trip to Dayton for a non-conference match, and then wrap up the week playing two league foes, Loyola and Detroit.
Cleveland State Vikings (0-10-0)
The schedule for the Vikings during their inaugural season was deliberately put together, giving CSU 11 non-conference games - the last of which comes Oct. 1 against Bowling Green - before opening up the eight-match Horizon League slate against UW-Milwaukee on Oct. 3. Cleveland State is the last of the eight Horizon League schools to start conference play. In fact, by the time that the Vikings play their first league game, every other school except Detroit will have played two conference games (Detroit will have played only one), with Youngstown State already being halfway through its schedule (four games).
When Jennifer Wieand took a pass from Amber Rasmussen and scored with just 1:16 left in the match against Valparaiso on Sept. 26, it marked the end to a scoreless streak for the Vikings.
Detroit Titans (5-3-1, 1-0-0)

UW-Green Bay Phoenix (2-6-1, 0-1-0)
UW-Green Bay sophomore walk-on Alyson Van Lith had her own "Rudy" moment in the team's loss to #1 Notre Dame Sept. 26.
