ASHEVILLE, N.C. - The UNC Asheville women 's soccer team is back in action Saturday evening when the Bulldogs attempt to win their first Big South Conference match of the year at Presbyterian College starting at 7 p.m.
Asheville (1-9-0, 0-2-0 BSC) has been off this past week after a 3-2 loss to VMI last Sunday afternoon at home. The Bulldogs trailed 2-0 at halftime and 3-1 and almost came back before falling to the Keydets.
