JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Oct. 29, 2010) - Riding a five-game win streak, the ETSU men's soccer team will look to knock off No. 4 North Carolina Saturday night as the Bucs host the Tar Heels at Summers-Taylor Stadium.
Game time is slated for 6 p.m. as the first 500 fans will receive a "Pack the Pitch" blackout t-shirt.
The Bucs (12-4-0, 7-2-0 A-Sun) rolled to a 4-1 win over USC Upstate on Wednesday as they closed out the conference slate with five straight wins. ETSU is also currently on an 11-game home win streak dating back to 2009.
Aaron Schoenfeld (Knoxville, Tenn.) and Guilherme Reis (Belo Horizonte, Brazil) lead the way for the Buccaneers as Schoenfeld has a team-best five goals, while Reis has netted three game-winners. The ETSU defense has been stout lately as the Bucs have allowed the fewest shots and third fewest goals in the conference. Sophomore keeper Ronnie Hreha (Asheville, N.C.) has posted a shutout in three of the last four matches.
The Tar Heels lead the all-time series 2-0-0 against the Bucs. ETSU forced UNC to overtime a year ago, but the Tar Heels got a last minute overtime goal from Billy Schuler to pull out the win.
North Carolina (12-2-1, 6-0-1 ACC) is currently on an eight-game unbeaten streak defeating 3rd ranked Virginia and 18th ranked South Carolina along the way. The 4th ranked Tar Heels are led by Enzo Martinez as he has posted five goals, three assists and 13 points on the year.
Fans who wear a costume or black attire will receive admission for only a Buc ($1). There will also be a pre-game tailgate in the north parking lot as well as a halftime costume contest.
