first_imgCONWAY, Ark. – Coming off a 2-0 performance last week, the Drake University men’s soccer team will play a pair of Missouri Valley Conference road matches this week starting Tuesday night at Central Arkansas. Drake will close the week with a visit to Bradley on Sept. 30 for a 7 p.m. match. The Bradley contest will be broadcast on The Valley on ESPN3. Central Arkansas (2-6-0, 1-1-0 MVC), an affiliate member of the MVC in men’s soccer, is coming off a 3-2 victory over league-leader Valparaiso. The Bears rallied for a 3-2 win over Drake in overtime last season, but the Bulldogs lead the all-time series 5-3-1. Bradley (6-3-0, 1-0-0 MVC) is off to a great start in 2017 after winning just two matches in 2016. The Braves who defeated preseason favorite Loyola, 1-0, on Sept. 13 will visit Evansville on Wednesday. Drake has won three of its past four matches after starting the season 0-5. Enzugusi and Jaimes have paced the Bulldogs’ offense during that span with three and two goals, respectively. Drake (3-6-0, 0-1-0 MVC) started last week with a 2-1 comeback win at Western Illinois. The Leathernecks struck first in the 60th minute before the Bulldogs quickly answered in the 62nd minute after junior Nic Jaimes (Olathe, Kan.) scored the equalizer. Later in the 77th minute, freshman Leroy Enzugusi (Marion, Iowa) scored the game winner. Drake ended the week with another comeback victory this one at home as it rallied for a 2-1 decision over UMKC. The Bulldogs fell behind in the first half after the Kangaroos scored in the 29th minute. Enzugusi then had the equalizer in the 56th minute. Later fellow freshman Stafford Dowling (Hamilton, New Zealand) scored his first career goal and the game winner in the 68th minute. Following this week on the road, Drake returns to the Cownie Soccer Complex on Oct. 7 to host Loyola. First kick against the Ramblers is scheduled for 7 p.m. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more
