NORFOLK, VA-- The ODU Men's Soccer squad (1-0) hits the road to Charleston, SC to play Furman in the first round of the Aaron Olitsky Memorial Soccer Classic. Game time is 5 p.m.
"The College of Charleston Tournament will be very challenging as both C of C and Furman are excellent teams with strong soccer traditions," said ODU head coach Alan Dawson.
Furman (1-0) opened the season with a 1-0 win over Presbyterian. The Paladins were 11-8-1 last year and tied for second in the Southern Conference. This is the first meeting between the two schools.
ODU will then play the host school College of Charleston on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. The Cougars opened the season with a 4-3 win over Coastal Carolina, as Riley Phelps scored all three goals for the Chants. ODU and Coastal have only played once. That was in the 2002 Stihl Soccer Classic with Coastal winning, 4-0.
