The ETSU club soccer team will face the men’s university team at 5 p.m. Saturday in Summers-Taylor stadium.
The game will be played as a scrimmage for the club team to allow them some competitive play before the beginning of their first season.
However, the game will also serve as a tune-up match for the university team.
The club team is looking forward to getting some college level experience. One of the players on the club team expressed his excitement at getting to play again.
“I’m excited to get back on the field and play competitively again,” said goalkeeper David Hirsh.
“It will definitely be a fun match to be a part of.”
The ETSU men’s soccer team has come off a four loss streak in its fall season.
They will certainly be looking to boost some confidence and get a preview to what might be their weaknesses and strengths in the spring.
The vice president and center midfielder for the club, Victor Shem, is excited for the opportunity to really test the club as a whole and see where they stand.
“I’m really looking forward to the game on Saturday,” Shem said.
“We’re not where we need to be in terms of fitness, but it’ll be a fun challenge to play against the school team. Hopefully we can represent the club team well.”
The scrimmage is open to anyone who would like to attend.
