WEATHER UPDATE (4:30 p.m.): Inclement weather in Madison has forced Friday's match between Wisconsin and Milwaukee indoors. The match will begin at 5 p.m. inside the McClain Center, located adjacent to Camp Randall Stadium.
MADISON, Wis. -- The Wisconsin men's soccer team wraps up its spring exhibition season Friday by hosting in-state rival Milwaukee in a 5 p.m. match at Camp Randall Stadium.
Admission to the match is free, with fans asked to enter the stadium at Gate 3 and proceed to the east side stands through Badger Alley.
The contest will be a standard 90-minute match with an overtime session, if necessary.
In the event of inclement weather, the match will move indoors to the turf field at the adjacent McClain Center.
The Badgers (1-0-3) and Panthers (2-1-2) are meeting for the second time in five days, as they battled to a 1-1 draw in the championship game of the Wisconsin Spring Cup in Milwaukee on Sunday. The Panthers claimed the event title on penalty kicks, 5-4
Milwaukee also is the only team this spring season to score on the Badgers, who have seen senior-to-be Ryan Vint and rising junior Jamal Habibi share time in goal.
Wisconsin is using a limited roster for the spring after nine players finished their eligibility last fall. First-year head coach John Trask has signed 11 incoming freshmen for the 2010 season, as well as senior transfer Josh Thiermann, who will play Friday.
Trask will leave coaching duties for Friday's match in the hands of assistants Keith Tiemeyer and Phil Presser, as he is currently serving as an assistant coach for the U.S. Under-18 Men's National Team training camp in Carson, Calif.
