Keydet Men Travel to UNC-Asheville Wednesday
LEXINGTON, Va. – The VMI men’s soccer team begins a three-game road trip Wednesday as the Keydets travel to UNC-Asheville for a non-conference game at 6 p.m.
The young Keydets started the 2019 season at home against Winthrop on Friday, falling 2-0. VMI started five freshmen and three sophomores in the contest and had two more freshmen play significant minutes.
The same two teams played on October 20 last fall in Asheville, N.C. The Bulldogs scored in the game’s first 10 minutes and hung on for a 1-0 victory.
UNC-Asheville was defeated at Navy Friday 3-1 in its only game of the season thus far.
VMI will play road games in three states (North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia) before returning home to Lexington next Saturday, September 14 to face Gardner-Webb University at noon. The Keydets also will also play at Duquesne and Longwood Universities.
