Match #1: NC State (0-0) at Navy (0-0)
RALEIGH, N.C. – The NC State women’s soccer team will begin its 2013 season when it travels to Annapolis, Md., to take on Navy this Friday, August 23. Opening kick-off is schedule for 7 p.m.
In playing its first regular-season game of the year, the Wolfpack will ring in a new era under first-year head coach Tim Santoro and his coaching staff. The match will be Santoro’s first at the helm of a program, after spending the previous five seasons at Wake Forest.
The Pack returns 19 players, including nine starters from last season and also welcomes nine newcomers to this year’s team.
Friday’s meeting between NC State and Navy will be the third in series history with the Wolfpack having won the first two matchups. The two last squared off Aug. 21, 2011 in Raleigh, where NC State claimed a 1-0 win after a converted penalty kick in the 88th minute by Alex Berger.
