NORFOLK, Va. – The Old Dominion (2-1-1) men’s soccer team hosts Charlotte (2-0-0) on Friday at 7 p.m. in a rematch of the 2017 C-USA title game.

The Monarchs are coming off a 1-0 loss to Temple on Sunday night. Although suffering one loss this season, the Monarchs are seasoned, having played four games so far this season.

This past weekend freshman Daniel Bloyou made his first career start and was the only freshman to start so far this season. David Tombini saw his first action of the season as he spent time in the defense against Temple. 

Senior Max Wilschrey leads the team in goals (5) this season.

Series History
