NC State wraps up its regular season schedule by hosting Virginia on Thursday, November 1 beginning at 7 p.m. at Dail Soccer Field.
The Wolfpack (10-8, 1-6 ACC) braved severe weather earlier in the week to outlast VMI 3-2. State built a 3-0 lead at the half, then rose to the difficult challenge of contending against both VMI and the prevailing wind in the second half.
Virginia (8-6-2, 2-4-1) enters the contest having taken the midweek off after playing Boston College to a scoreless tie last Friday. Earlier in the season, the Cavaliers managed a 1-0 win over Duke in Charlottesville.
Heading into the final weekend of ACC action, Alex Martinez trails Maryland's Patrick Mullins by two points on the conference leaderboard. Martinez ranks second in both points (28) and points per game (1.56).
Martinez has 10 goals on the season, one shy of Mullins's total for the year, and good for a share of second place. The pair are tied at the top of the assists leaderboard with eight each.
Thursday's match will be streamed live on ESPN3 beginning at 7 p.m. Fans can also follow Twitter updates from @PackMensSoccer, and live stats from GoPack.com.
