CHARLESTON, S.C. - After splitting their opening weekend with a win and a loss, the College of Charleston men's soccer team will look to bounce back against an old SoCON rival on Saturday when they travel to Greenville for a 7 p.m. showdown with the Furman Paladins (1-0-1).
The College began its season with a win over the Navy Midshipmen thanks to a two-goal barrage in the opening six minutes. After that though, CofC met its match against No. 23 Florida International, and after playing a tight first half, surrendered the 3-1 defeat to the Panthers.
With three goals on the season, six different Cougars have gotten on tha scoring sheet through two games. Nico Rittmeyer's was the only goal that's stood up as a game-winner this season, while Joseph Terry and Cornell Holland have also found the back of the net over the weekend.
Furman was a participant in the action at Patriots Point, but the Paladins and Cougars did not meet one another in Mt. Pleasant. Furman started things off with an upset-victory over FIU on Friday, following a tightly contested game with limited scoring opportunities. The Paladins then drew Navy on Sunday, where the two teams played to a 1-1 draw. Josiah Baker scored in both contests for Furman.
The Paladins and Cougars met last season at Patriots Point, where they played to a 1-1 draw. In that game, Leland Archer got the equalizer with less than three minutes to play by converting a PK opportunity.
