MUNCIE, Ind. -- The Ball State soccer team continues the non-conference portion of its schedule with two home games this weekend at the Briner Sports Complex.

The Cardinals will host Eastern Illinois at 4:30 p.m. Friday and then welcome Tennessee Tech for a 1 p.m. Sunday contest. Live stats and a live broadcast by Sports Link Radio on WCRD will be available for both games at ballstatesports.com.

Ball State is 2-1 on the season after suffering a 1-0 setback a week ago at IPFW. The Cardinals are 2-0 at home and have out-scored their opponents 5-1 at the Briner Sports Complex so far.

Four Cardinals have scored already this year, led by Michelle Blok with a pair of goals. Senior Layne Schramm and freshman Brooke Dennis have each seen time at goalkeeper, teaming with the Ball State back line for the lowest goals against average in the Mid-American Conference at 0.67.

Eastern Illinois enters Friday’s game at 0-4 on the season. The Panthers and Cardinals have faced two common opponents already in Northern Iowa and Green Bay. Ball State defeated both teams in its season-opening weekend, while Eastern Illinois suffered 2-0 losses to both.

Madison Carter owns the lone goal this season for the Panthers, while the team has used three different goalkeepers through four games.

Tennessee Tech is also 0-4 on the season, but all four of the team’s losses have come by just one goal. The Golden Eagles are coming off losses last weekend to Alabama State and Northern Kentucky. They will visit Findlay on Friday before heading to Muncie for Sunday’s contest with Ball State.

Three different players have accounted for Tennessee State’s three goals on the season, while Jordan Brown has played every minute in the net and posted an .841 save percentage.

Ball State will be meeting Tennessee Tech for the first time, while the Cardinals are 1-1 in two previous games with Eastern Illinois. Ball State topped the Panthers 2-0 in the most recent meeting between the teams in 2008 in Muncie.

Following this weekend's games, the Cardinals will go on the road for five in a row before their next home contest in early October.
