Redhawks soccer prepares for Eastern Illinois

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - The Southeast Missouri State University soccer team is home for its first home conference game Friday against Eastern Illinois.

Coach Heather Nelson says it’s a big game. Both teams are coming in with a 2-0 record in conference play.

"I rate them high after getting to see them in our tournament last season," Nelson said about Eastern Illinois "I think they’re a very athletic team. They have a lot of high pressure which will cause our defenders some issues, but having said that I’m also very happy with how well our team is playing. I feel that if we control and play our style of game then we will be able to control the game."

The team had a very difficult non-conference schedule this season that prepared the defense for the teams within the conference.

Overall, the surging Redhawks are 6-2-1.

The Redhawks host Eastern Illinois Friday night at 6:30 pm at Houck Stadium.
