After dropping their season-opening match 1-0 to South Carolina on the road, ETSU men’s soccer program kicks off their home campaign Thursday night against the Wildcats of Kentucky. The Buccaneers went 2-1 in preseason with both wins coming at home in Johnson City.
Kentucky comes into Summers-Taylor Stadium to face their second consecutive Atlantic Sun opponent. They faced Northern Kentucky last Sunday in their final preseason match. The Wildcats led for the majority of the match but gave up the equalizer in the closing minutes. Kentucky totaled 10 wins last season and earned the program’s first NCAA berth since 2003.
David Geno and Ryan Coultier lead the 2013 Bucs. Geno has garnered multiple preseason awards including being named a Soccer America preseason All-American as well as landing on TopDrawerSoccer.com’s top 100 upperclassmen list. Coultier was the 2012 Atlantic Sun Goal Keeper of the Year.
