ASHEVILLE, N.C. - The UNC Asheville men's soccer team goes back on the road Saturday night when the Bulldogs take on 16th-ranked Coastal Carolina in Big South Conference action starting at 7 p.m.
Saturday's match will be video-streamed and can be seen under the multimedia tag at www.uncabulldogs.com.
Asheville (1-10-0, 0-4-0 BSC) looks to break a 10-game losing streak in Saturday's contest. The Bulldogs dropped a heartbreaking 3-2 decision at Presbyterian College Wednesday night. The Blue Hose's winning goal came with 12 minutes left on an own goal.
The Chanticleers (8-1-2, 3-0-0 BSC) are having another great season in 2012. They'll enter the match with five straight wins and unbeaten in nine consecutive matches.
"Coastal is a very good team. They're nationally ranked for a reason," commented Bulldog coach Matt Kern. "Coastal is well-coached and has a lot of dangerous players who can score. However, our guys are looking forward to the challenge.
"We made some progress on Wednesday vs. Presbyterian in scoring two goals and creating several other quality chances," added Kern. "The goals we are conceding right now are simply too soft. We are looking to be a bit more organized on the defensive side of the ball and more committed to our individual and small group defending."
CCU has dominated the series over the years and has posted nine straight victories in the series. Asheville's last win came at Coastal Carolina in the 2004 season when the Bulldogs edged the Chants, 1-0. Six of those nine wins have been one-goal affairs with three matches going to overtime.
Asheville returns home on Wednesday (Oct. 10) to host Gardner-Webb starting at 4 p.m.
