CHICAGO – On Saturday, the DePaul men’s soccer program will hit the road to face Seton Hall in South Orange, N.J. in its fourth BIG EAST match of 2017.
In their last time on the pitch, the Blue Demons edged Villanova 1-0 to pick up their first BIG EAST win of the season. DePaul, which carries a 4-5-1 mark while posting a 1-1-1 record in conference play, looks to open the month of October with a win against the Pirates on their turf.
On Monday, Stijn van der Slot was named to the BIG EAST’s weekly honor roll for his game-winning goal against Villanova. To date, the Netherlands native has totaled nine points on the year, scoring on four occasions while dishing out an assist.
DePaul has posted two shutouts in 2017 where goalkeeper Quentin Low has made 32 saves while allowing just 13 goals. Through 10 matches, Low carries a 1.26 goals against average in 930 minutes between the posts.
Seton Hall (4-6-1, 1-2-0 BIG EAST) has had a comparable season to the Blue Demons as the Pirates have totaled four wins on the year, collecting its lone victory in conference play against Creighton in a 2-0 victory on Sept. 30. In the match, red-shirt sophomore Peyton Elder made his season debut, picking up the win in goal en route to recording three saves in the shutout.
Andres Arcila leads Seton Hall with six goals in 2017 and has notched three assists to tally 15 points on the season. Three other Pirates, including Gabriel Viola, Marco Neves, and Spencer Burkhardt, have netted two goals apiece to tally six of the squad’s 16 goals on the season.
The Blue Demons, who lead the all-time series with Pirates 5-1-1, defeated Seton Hall 2-1 in their last meeting on Oct. 8, 2016 in Chicago.
Saturday’s match is free to the public.
