ASHEVILLE, N.C. - The UNC Asheville men's soccer team will play at Campbell Saturday night at 7 p.m. as the Bulldogs take on the Camels in a Big South Conference match.
Saturday's match will be video-streamed and can be seen under the multimedia tag at www.uncabulldogs.com.
Asheville (1-14-0, 0-8-0 BSC) is looking for its first league win of the season. It will not be easy against Campbell (10-5-1, 5-3-0 BSC).
"Our game with Campbell will be a stern test. They play an attractive style of soccer and have several impact players," commented Bulldog coach Matt Kern. "Campbell has beaten two ACC teams this season in N.C. State and Virginia Tech. They are probably under consideration to receive an NCAA at-large bid if they fail to win Big South Tournament. We look to play spoilers and see if we can pick up three points in Buies Creek on Saturday night."
Asheville is coming off a 4-3 loss to VMI at home this past Saturday afternoon. The Bulldogs were down 4-1 midway through the second half and down to 10 men after Kenneth Lingerfelt received a red card. Kern's club stormed back and cut the lead to 4-3 on goals from Rayon Gibbs and Trey Hemphill before running out of time.
Asheville has lost its last three games by just one goal and dropped six one-goal matches this season. Four of those losses have occurred in league matches.
Trey Hemphill is the Bulldogs leading scorer with two goals, two assists for six points. The freshman forward had a goal and an assist against VMI. Sophomore goalkeeper Dan Jackson has been between the pipes for 13 matches this year and made 78 saves.
Asheville finishes the season next Friday (Nov. 2) at Liberty.
