Saturday's contest will be the final home match for the Foresters' four seniors.

The women's soccer team will also celebrate Senior Day this week when the Foresters host Beloit College on Wednesday.

The Blueboys enter the week 8-6-1 overall and 3-2-1 in the MWC. The Foresters' 3-0 triumph over Illinois College last season extended their winning streak against the Blueboys.
