DAHLONEGA – For the second year in a row, the University of North Georgia men’s and women’s soccer teams will both host the Peach Belt Conference Tournament quarterfinals at the UNG Soccer Complex. The women and men will both take on USC Aiken tomorrow evening in Dahlonega.
The Nighthawk women trailed the Pacers, 2-0, early in the first half before scoring the final three goals of the match to come away with a 3-2 win in Aiken back on October 14. Since that point, UNG has gone 3-0, outscoring opponents 17-2 in the stretch, while USCA has gone 1-1 with a win over Clayton State. This is the fourth consecutive year the women have hosted the quarterfinal round of the tournament and the first time in program history that the Nighthawks are the No. 1 seed.
UNG’s men defeated USC Aiken, 3-0, in their matchup two weeks ago with goals scored by Gabriel Garcia, Carl Ludwig Eriksson and Michael Akin. The Nighthawks finished the season at 2-1 after the match in Aiken, defeating GSW and Clayton State on their way to the No. 3 seed in the tournament.
The women will start the doubleheader at 5 p.m. and the men will follow at 7:30 p.m. Both games will be broadcast through the Nighthawk Sports Network as well.
