By Robert McKinney, Athletics Communications Director, (503) 370-6110

SALEM, ORE. -- The Willamette University men's soccer team will battle the archrival Linfield College Wildcats at Sparks Field this evening (Sat., Oct. 8). Game time is scheduled for 5 p.m. (PDT). In addition to playing the Wildcats, Willamette will be welcoming back about 30 former Bearcat men's soccer players.

The unusual 5 p.m. kickoff was chosen to allow Bearcat fans to watch both the football game at McCulloch Stadium (1:30 p.m. kickoff) and the men's soccer game afterward. The Willamette men's soccer team is currently 3-5-1 overall, 2-4-0 in the Northwest Conference. Linfield is 1-7-1 overall and 0-5-1 in the NWC.
