KALAMAZOO -- The Western Michigan women's soccer team hosts Kent State on Friday and Ohio on Sunday for its final two home games of the season at the WMU Soccer Complex.

The Broncos host the Golden Flashes at 4 p.m. on Friday and then host the Bobcats on "Senior Day" on Sunday at 1 p.m. Prior to the start of Sunday's contest the Broncos will take time to honor their five seniors Kelsey Baskins, Anina Cicerone, Stefana Ciraulo, Megan Matula and Britney Pavlica.Reports

WMU sits in last place in the MAC West with a 1-2-3 conference record. The Broncos have earned six points total in the standings and need to finish the season in the top eight in order to make the MAC Tournament. The Golden Flashes (8-3-2, 3-2-1 MAC) sit in second in the MAC East and are currently on a two-game winning streak. Along with the Broncos, Kent State has the stingiest defense in the MAC, with both teams allowing just four goals in six games. KSU's Jaclyn Dutton currently leads the conference in points with 28 on 13 goals and two assists in just 12 games played. Five of her goals have come in Kent's six MAC games.

Ohio (7-6-1, 2-3-1 MAC) head to Eastern Michigan before coming to Kalamazoo on Sunday. The Bobcats sit in third in the MAC East after winning at Akron last Friday and then falling to Buffalo, 1-0, on Sunday.
