OGDEN -- After spending a month on the road, the Wildcats are coming home.
Fresh off a strong road win to wrap up the non-conference season, the Weber State soccer team returns to Wildcat Soccer Field this afternoon to take on longtime rival Montana.
Kickoff between the two original Big Sky Conference soccer powers is set for 3 p.m.
On Saturday, Weber State will host Eastern Washington at noon.
Weber State brings a 4-2-2 overall record in conference play, its first winning non-conference season since 2005. The Wildcats are rated 84th in the latest NCAA RPI, the highest-rated of the 10 Big Sky teams.
Sophomore forward Mackenzie Harrison leads Weber State with three goals and six total points. Sophomore forward Stacy Bair -- who scored the match-winner in Sunday's 1-0 win at Utah State - has two goals and an assist for five points.
Defensively, the Wildcats have allowed just nine goals in eight matches, a 1.05 goals-against average. Senior goalkeeper Ryann Waldman has two shutouts, while sophomore goalkeeper Danielle MacKay earned her first career clean sheet in Sunday's win.
Montana comes into the match with a 3-3-3 mark, having defeated Nevada 2-0 in its final non-conference match on Friday.
The Wildcats and Grizzlies combined to win the first four Big Sky titles, and have combined for 10 regular-season conference titles and seven tournament titles.
Montana holds an 11-10-2 edge in the series after winning 1-0 in Missoula, Mont., last season. The Grizzlies are the only team in the Big Sky to hold a winning record against Weber State. Since coach Tim Crompton took over in 2004, the Wildcats are 6-4-2 in the series.
Eastern Washington comes into the week with a 2-7-0 mark after defeating North Dakota State 3-0 on the road Sunday.
Weber State is 12-5-0 in 17 all-time matches with EWU and ended a three-year skid in the series with a 1-0 victory in Cheney, Wash., last season.
