Inferno Soccer
Alverno (1-10, 0-6 Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference) looks to snap its current skid as it begins a five-game homestand with three contests this week.

The Falcons (9-1-2, 5-0 NACC), who visit Wednesday, have won seven straight games. Saturday's opponent, the Cougars (5-8, 3-3) have won their last three games.

Sunday the Inferno hosts the Lions (1-8), who have lost their last four contests, in nonconference action.

In the all-time series, Alverno is 0-13 versus CUW, 1-13-1 against CUC, and an undefeated 4-0 versus Finlandia.

All three games will be broadcast live on athletics.alverno.edu.

 

Inferno Volleyball
After a 1-2 week, Alverno (7-16, 0-6 NACC) is still seeking its first league win of the season.

The Inferno will get two opportunities this week as the squad travels downtown to MSOE (9-12, 0-6) Friday night, and hosts Wisconsin Lutheran (7-14, 1-5) Saturday in Reiman Gymnasium.

The Raiders have lost their last 11 matches after beginning the season 9-1, while the Warriors are 4-4 in their last eight.

Alverno trails in both all-time series, 1-18 to MSOE and 0-21 to WLC.

Both matches will have live broadcasts with links available on athletics.alverno.edu.
