JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Oct. 7, 2009) - The ETSU men's soccer team is set to head to first place Mercer as the Bucs take on the Bears on Thursday at 7 p.m. at Bear Field in Macon, Ga.
The Bucs (1-4-3, 0-0-1 A-Sun) come into the match looking for their first conference win after taking a school record 33 shots in a draw against USC Upstate this past weekend. ETSU is led by sophomores Sean Hoek (Newburgh, Ind.) and Jaron Westbrook (Round Rock, Texas). Hoek leads the team with two goals, while Westbrook has the lone game-winner for the Bucs.
