After Friday’s matchup at Morrison Stadium drew a crowd of 3,133, the Mavericks and Bluejays saw a total 8,926 fans in three exhibitions.
A school record 2,581 saw UNO drop a 1-0 decision to Penn State at the South Omaha Classic last week while 3,212 were in attendance for the Bluejays’ 1-0 win over No. 7 Notre Dame.
Mavs loaded with locals
The UNO roster has a slightly more local flavor than Creighton’s.
The Bluejays carry three players from Nebraska on their roster while 11 Mavericks are from the Cornhusker State.
Jays stay unbeaten
Creighton has not lost an exhibition game at home in the past seven seasons, going 6-0-3 in that span after the Friday’s 1-1 draw with UNO.
Work continues at Caniglia
Work continues to progress converting Caniglia Field on UNO’s campus from a football stadium to a soccer facility.
The Mavericks hope to be using it for home matches in late September or early October.
Until then, the Mavs will continue to use the UNO Soccer Field near 68th and Spring Streets.
UNO eyes improvement
UNO is beginning its third season of play.
After going 1-11-1 in the first season, the Mavs improved to 5-10-1 last season, including a 3-3-1 record in the Summit League.
