  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

The BG Men’s soccer team will compete in the Panthers Invitational in Milwaukee this weekend.

They will play against Marquette University Saturday afternoon at 6 p.m. and conclude the two-team invitational Sunday against Milwaukee at 12 p.m.

“We use each day to get better and work on things so we can be better every day,” senior Ryan Snashall said. “Once the first game is over we mentally move on to the next one.”

The Falcons have won two of their first three games with the only exception being a tie against No. 14 ranked Michigan. The Falcons now enter a part of their schedule with four of their next five opponents being ranked in the top 25 with the only exception being Ohio State.

Marquette was previously ranked as the No. 12 team in the country before losing to Milwaukee in their season opener. Marquette is now in the group of “other teams receiving votes” with 38 votes from coaches around the country. Milwaukee with the win against Marquette and is now ranked 24th in the country.

“Marquette ended the season on a very good roll,” head coach Eric Nichols said. “For us every game is important but our schedule this year is crazy.”

This will be the Falcon’s first away games this year and will be against two teams that are even ranking wise with the Michigan team the Falcons tied earlier this week.

“Our mentality doesn’t change when we go on the road,” senior Joey D’ Agostino said. “We have an opportunity tomorrow that’s all we are worried about it doesn’t matter where we play.”

The Falcons are going into this game with the same mentality and game plan they always have “defense first” and come out really tough Snashall said.

“We are all more focused on what we are going to do,” D’Agostino said. “Rather than focusing on what the other team is doing.”

This weekend they will work to have strong performances and put themselves in a position to win the games, Nichols said.

“We need to be in positions to win these games late in the game,” Nichols said. “I would love for us to play two spotless games, but I’m sure that is not going to be the case. So when we are off we want those spells not to be very long and we when we are on we want to score goals.”

For the second straight weekend, the Falcons will be tested against a top 25 team but this weekend it will be two teams instead of one.

“If we play the game we know we can we should be good this weekend,” Snashall said.
