The LSU soccer team will continue its five-game road swing to start the season Monday in Raleigh, N.C., against North Carolina State as part of a doubleheader.
Monday’s match between the Tigers and the Wolfpack is scheduled for 4:30 p.m., while the N.C. State men will follow at 7 p.m. with a match against Virginia Military Institute.
“N.C. State is a tough and tested team from the powerful (Atlantic Coast Conference) that is playing with a tremendous amount of confidence right now early in the season,” LSU coach Brian Lee said. “It’s always a challenge going on the road and coming away with a (good) result. It’s important for our team to match the intensity we know we will see from NC State as they defend their home field tomorrow night.”
LSU (1-1) and N.C. State (3-0) will meet for just the second time. The Wolfpack won 2-0 in 1997 in Baton Rouge.
LSU features a diverse attack with four different Tigers accounting for the team’s four goals thus far. The Tigers are looking for their second-straight win following a 3-0 shutout of Louisiana-Lafayette.
The Wolfpack beat Old Dominion 4-1 and shut out Virginia Commonwealth and Navy both by 1-0 scores.
N.C. State is led by seniors Tonya Cain and Alex Berger, who each have two goals.
The Tigers follow Monday’s game with a trip to Houston to face Rice at 7 p.m. Friday. LSU will end its five-game road swing at Houston at 7 p.m. on Sept. 6.
