The Stetson men's soccer team returns to Atlantic Sun Conference action with a 1:00 p.m. bout with USC Upstate on Sunday. The Hatters and the Spartans are both 1-1 in league action before Upstate takes on FGCU Friday night.
USC Upstate makes a trip to Florida this weekend for a pair of games at FGCU and Stetson. The Spartans are currently 1-1-0 in league play and 3-6-1 overall. Upstate lost five straight contests before defeating North Florida by a score of 4-1 on October 7. It marked one of only two games this season that the Spartans have scored more than one goal. Dave Musambi and Dylan Hoope lead the team with three goals each in 2012.
The Hatters have never lost to the Spartans in the short time that this series has been alive. Stetson holds a 4-0-1 advantage over USC Upstate since the first meeting between the two teams back in 2007. Last season the Hatters won a 3-2 overtime game in Spartanburg.
Junior Andreas Schnabl recorded his second shutout of the season in Wednesday's 0-0 draw with UCF. It marked the 12th of his career, setting a new record at Stetson for all-time shutouts. The junior passed former Hatter Ed Funcheon, who tallied 11 from 1985-88. Schnabl is also the current leader in all-time career goals against average with a mark of 1.12.
