ASHEVILLE, N.C. – The UNC Asheville men’s soccer team is back at home on Saturday to take on Big South rival Campbell at Greenwood Field starting at 2 p.m. Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for children.


Saturday’s match can be seen for free on the Big South Digital Network under the multimedia tag at uncabulldogs.com.


Asheville (4-8-0, 1-3-0 BSC) hopes to get a victory against a solid Campbell squad. The Camels have a 2-6-3 worksheet but are 2-0-1 in league play after a 1-1 tie vs. Radford at home Tuesday evening.


“Our match versus Campbell should be very entertaining,” stated Bulldog coach Matt Kern. “Campbell is well-coached, organized defensively and value possession in the attack. 


Our progress this season with our ability to hold the ball for longer periods of time has really improved, and I am expecting a great college soccer game on Saturday,” added Kern.


The Bulldogs are coming off one of the toughest losses in recent memory last Saturday when they lost a double-overtime 1-0 decision to High Point at home. The Panthers scored in the 108th minute after Asheville had a shot that was cleared off the line late in regulation and a shot that hit the cross bar and goal post in overtime.


Campbell defeated Asheville last year in Buies Creek, 5-1. Emil Gonsalvez scored his first career goal in the match.


The Bulldogs are the road for their next two matches after Saturday’s game. Asheville plays at Gardner-Webb Wednesday night and travels to VMI next Saturday (Oct.26).


Asheville is looking for its first win over Campbell since the 1991 season when the Bulldogs recorded a 2-1 victory in Buies Creek. The Camels have won their last four matches at Greenwood Field, the last three by just one goal, including an overtime win in 2007 and a last-second 3-2 victory in 2011.


One of Asheville’s biggest wins as a program came against Campbell back in 1988 when the Bulldogs stunned the Camels 1-0 at home. Campbell entered the match unbeaten at 7-0 and was ranked nationally with wins over Duke and UNC Chapel Hill.
