    EVANSTON, Ill. – Defending Big Ten champion Northwestern men’s soccer kicks off its 2012 spring schedule Saturday, March 10. The ’Cats take on ACC foe Wake Forest in Winston-Salem, N.C., at 7 p.m., marking the start of the five-event spring slate.
    The first match of the spring season features two 2011 NCAA Tournament teams as NU made its fifth NCAA appearance in the last six seasons after winning the Big Ten regular season and tournament crowns, and Wake Forest also made its 10th appearance in the last 11 years.

    Two home events are scheduled for April 14 and 21. On Saturday, April 14, Northwestern hosts two teams at Lakeside Field, beginning with UW-Parkside at 10 a.m. and UW-Whitewhater at 12:30 p.m. UW-Whitewater and UW-Parkside will play each other at 11:15 a.m. The ’Cats host this year’s edition of the Chicago Cup on Saturday, April 21, with games beginning at 3:30 p.m.

    Coach Lenahan on the Wake Forest game: "It was a great spring game for us against us a very good opponent. We were a little sluggish in the first 15 minutes but that is probably to be expected after we bussed overnight 13 hours to play. Tommy (Tombridge) kept us in the game in the first half with a couple of great saves. After about the 20 minute mark or so, we settled in and the game was pretty much even from there, although they had a little more possession. You don’t get to play that level game that often in the spring so it was a very good experience for us."
