8.31.15 --For Immediate Release:  The NCAA Division I College Season kicked off this past weekend, and former FC Wisconsin players made an immediate impact. FC Wisconsin had players representing over 10 different Division I Programs within 8 Conferences across the country.

 

 

  • After a tough 1-0 loss in OT at Oregon State, Marquette bounced back on Sunday with an excellent 4-2 rout of Portland. Sophomore Alex McBride (Big East All-Rookie Team 2014) scored one and senior Kelmend Islami notched two goals to help the Eagles improve to 1-1 for the season.

 

  • UWM opened the season with a 5-2 win over Evansville with sophomores Nick Moon and Reid Stevenson both picking up an assist. UWM’s record fell to 1-1 for the season with a tough 4-0 loss at #6 Creighton in front of a crowd of 2,284 with Moon accounting for Milwaukee’s one shot on target in the contest.

 

  • Wisconsin had a tough opening weekend losing 1-0 against Big East contender Butler and suffering a 2-0 loss to #19 Xavier on Sunday. A positive for the badgers was the impressive displays of sophomore Alex Masbruch who played every minute in both games which lead Coach Trask to comment after the Butler game, “The continued maturity of Alex Masbruch stood out to me tonight".

 

 

  • Freshman Ryan Machonga started for IUPUI in their 1-1 tie at Detroit and recorded a shot on goal for the Jaguars. Machonga has also had an impressive Pre-Season starting the previous two scrimmages against UIC and Evansville.

 

  • #22 St Louis University had an impressive start to the season with a 1-0 win at Tulsa in Double Over-Time. Sophomore Max Karcher started at Center Back and helped the Billikens earn the shutout and first victory of the season. Incoming Freshman Brady Lenius has also impressed during Pre-Season playing 45 minutes in the previous two warm-up games versus UIC and #4 Notre Dame.

 

 

 

  • Logan Ketterer helped Bradley University go 1-1 on the weekend starting both games.

Bradley fell to a tough loss at UIC 2-0, but bounced back in their home opener with a 1-0 win over Houston Baptist with Ketterer earning his first shut-out of the year.
