The Creighton men’s soccer team will look to win its third straight, continuing its homestand Friday with a match against UC Irvine.

Creighton (2-1-1) knocked off then-No. 21 Akron and Columbia last weekend. The Jays built two-goal leads in both of those matches and held on to win. Now CU will host the Anteaters (0-3-1) at 7:30 p.m. at Morrison Stadium.

It’ll be an opportunity for the Bluejays to continue showcasing their balanced offensive attack. Through four games, there have been six CU players who’ve scored a goal. The team’s five assists have been credited to five players.

That reflects well on Creighton’s depth, according to coach Johnny Torres. And it should serve them well as the season progresses — so long as each guy is ready to go each night, no matter his role, Torres said.

“It’s a learning experience,” Torres said. “Guys understand that it’s going to take from player No. 1 to player No. 29 to be able to have a successful season. This is something we’re going to continue to push.”
