PAINESVILLE, Ohio- The Lake Erie College men's soccer team will return home to the Britt for two home matches this week. First up, the Storm will host the Ashland Eagles on Wednesday (Oct. 12) afternoon.
Coach Brenner's Take: "The players realize the importance of these remaining games, as a group, we have marked these games as cup final whereby we do anything to find a way to win. In the same breath, we need to only focus on one game at a time, starting against a well coached Ashland team. Encourage fans to come support on Wednesday."
