CHICAGO – The DePaul men’s soccer team is fresh off a dominating victory against Drake last Friday and looks to use that momentum to pick of its third victory of 2017 on the road Tuesday against IUPUI.

Freshman Istvan Wilhelms has stepped up for the Blue Demons as an offensive force, leading DePaul in points (9).  Wilhelms, who is tied with teammate Philipp Konigstein with a team-best three goals, has dished out three assists in just five matches.

In their last match against Drake, the Blue Demons carried a 3-0 lead for 83 minutes of the contest before the Bulldogs scored their lone goal of the match. Against the Bulldogs, DePaul saw the return of Zach El-Shafei who made an instant contribution with an assist in the 70th minute.  Through five matches, goalkeeper Quentin Low has tallied 16 saves while surrendering nine goals in 461 minutes between the posts.

Outside of Friday’s 3-1 victory, each match of 2017 has been decided by just a single goal.  If DePaul is victorious against IUPUI on Tuesday, the victory would mark the 100th career victory by Blue Demon head coach Craig Blazer.

IUPUI is in search of its first win of 2017 on Tuesday as the Jaguars have dropped their first three matches of the season to post a 0-3 record.  The Jaguars opened 2017 on the road, falling to Bowling Green (2-0) and Cincinnati (2-1).  In their home opener, IUPUI was edged by Cleveland State 2-1. 

Pedro Valladao and Yan Souza have provided the Jaguars their two goals in 2017.  In goal, Michael Buck has made three starts, compiling 10 saves in 270 minutes while allowing six goals.

First touch from Michael A. Carroll Stadium is set for 6 p.m. Central live on ESPN 3.
