The Stetson men’s soccer team will head back on the road this weekend to continue Atlantic Sun Conference play at USC Upstate and ETSU on Friday and Sunday, respectively.
The Hatters (1-7-2, 0-2-0) opened A-Sun play this past weekend, falling to Northern Kentucky and Lipscomb at home. Stetson gave up goals late in the second half of both games, which led to the pair of losses.
USC Upstate (0-6-1, 0-1-0) welcomes Stetson to Spartanburg for a 7:00 p.m. contest on Friday night. The Spartans have yet to earn a victory in 2013 with their only point coming in a 1-1 tie at Appalachian State. USC Upstate lost its first A-Sun match by a score of 3-1 at Mercer.
ETSU (4-3-3, 2-0-0), meanwhile, opened up A-Sun play with wins at North Florida and Mercer. The Bucs topped the Ospreys 1-0 and defeated the Bears 2-0 as goalkeeper Ryan Coulter recorded his sixth and seventh shutouts of the season en route to a conference defensive player of the week honor.
