With conference play winding down, Bucs visit Northern Kentucky in pursuit of fifth league win

HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. (Oct. 22, 2013) - The ETSU men's soccer team will look to extend its program-best six-match road unbeaten streak when it takes on Northern Kentucky Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 7:00 p.m. inside NKU Stadium. The Buccaneers will enter the match with sole possession of second place in the Atlantic Sun standings.

GETTING UP TO SPEED

  • ETSU picked up its second consecutive victory Saturday, Oct. 19, beating Jacksonville, 2-1, on the road.
  • With the win, the Bucs (6-4-3, 4-1-0) broke their second-place tie with Lipscomb, taking sole possession of the second spot in the league standings.
  • Kristoffer Ibsen (Aalborg, Denmark) and Anthony Wojas (Auxerre, France) were the goal scorers for ETSU, with Donte Brangman (Southampton, Bermuda) assisting Wojas' score.
  • Senior goalkeeper Ryan Coulter (Dublin, Ireland) was 20 minutes away from earning his 24th career clean sheet, which would give him the A-Sun record for most career shutouts.
  • ETSU ranks among the nation's Top 50 for shutout percentage (0.62), goals against average (0.79), and save percentage (0.807). The Bucs lead the A-Sun in all three categories.
