"We need to win tonight, that's the bottom line,'' said the Chaos coach who will be a graduate assistant for the University of Charleston men's soccer team this fall. "We missed a chance to secure points. We just need to take care of our business the next three games.''
The Chaos has never made the playoffs in its 11-year history. The closest West Virginia has come to the postseason was last year when it missed out on the four-team field by one point.
"Everybody has committed their whole summer to that one goal,'' said Ivanovic. "Everybody works their tails off every single day.
"Even in practice everybody's going hard. Nobody is giving up. Every practice is like a game. It's a very challenging environment day in and day out.''
The Chaos has a local flavor with Adam Fox and Joe Johns (Charleston Catholic High School) and Brady Reymond (Point Pleasant), who has signed with Marshall. James Pucci paces the Chaos with nine goals and Ivanovic has a team-high five assists.
Tickets for tonight's matchup are $7 for adults, $5 for college or high school students with an ID, $3 for youths ages 5-12 and children under 5 are admistted free.
