The Stetson men’s soccer team returns home for a single game this weekend, hosting Mercer at the Athletic Training Center on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.

Last season’s runner-up in the Atlantic Sun Conference, Mercer (3-10-1) has gotten out to a slow start in league play, holding a record of just 1-2-1. The Bears began with a win at home against USC Upstate, but then lost to ETSU and Jacksonville before playing to a scoreless draw at FGCU this past Thursday.

Stetson, meanwhile, picked up its first point of A-Sun play last weekend, playing to a scoreless draw at USC Upstate with a depleted lineup. The Hatters will look to get back on track with two home contests after falling to ETSU by a score of 3-0 their last time out.

Sunday’s contest will have general admission tickets priced at $5 for adults and $4 for seniors and students. All home soccer matches are free to Stetson students, faculty, and staff with a Stetson University ID. For more information call (386) 738-HATS.

The match can also be watched live on HatterVision with Ryan Rouse on the call. Live Stats on, the @StetsonMSoccer Twitter feed, and Hat-Alerts are also available for in-game updates.
