CINCINNATI - The Xavier men's soccer team returns home for the first of two games this week when it hosts the Dayton Dutch Lions at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday at the Xavier University Soccer Complex.

The Musketeers take on the Lions after earning a 2-2 road draw against Notre Dame on Saturday.

Xavier has scored eight goals against this spring and has allowed three. Freshman Will Walker and sophomore Gino Depaoli each have two goals to pace the Musketeers' offense.

The Dutch Lions play in the USL Professional Division, which is the third tier of the American Soccer Pyramid. The Lions opened up their regular season with a 0-0 draw against Charlotte on Friday.

Last spring the teams played to a 3-3 draw with junior Luke Spencer scoring twice for Xavier.
