NC State soccer returns home, after spending its last two weeks on the road, to face Adelphi, Tuesday night at 7 p.m. at Dail Soccer Field.
Adelphi enters the match off of a 1-0 loss at Howard on Sunday, and a 1-0 win over Princeton a week ago. The Panthers are led by Omar Edwards and Nicholas Costa, a pair of upperclassmen leading the team with five points each on the year.
The Wolfpack (8-7) will be led by Alex Martinez, currently second in the ACC in points (22), goals (8), and assists (6).
Martinez assisted Danny DiPrima for the lone goal in the Pack's 1-0 win over Virginia Tech two weeks ago. The Pack fell on the road at No. 17 Wake Forest in its last match.
State's offense comes into this contest ranked third in the ACC in goals (26), goals per game (1.73), assists (21), and points (90). Tuesday's match marks the first meeting between Adelphi and NC State.
