It’s here. The final match of the campaign. The postseason is just around the corner and nothing proves that a team is more prepared than 5 straight victories outscoring their opponents 15-1. The #21 Charlotte 49ers men’s soccer team (12-2-3, 6-1-1 A10) host the George Washington Colonials (5-12-0, 2-6-0 A10) Saturday afternoon at 5pm and look to head into the A10 tournament riding 6 straight. Here we go!
The Colonials come into this final game hoping to finish on a good note, as this hasn’t been a pretty one, to say the least. They are 1-5-0 on the road and have been shutout their previous three games by a combined score of 12-0. Leading the way is Seth Rudolph, who boasts 6 put-aways on 27 boots.
Giuseppe Gentile commands the boys in green with 7 goals, 5 assists, and 62 whacks. Jennings Rex is not too far behind with 8 goals and 1 assist.
