Charlotte, NC- The nationally-ranked Charlotte 49ers (2-0-1) (7th in NSCAA, 10th in Soccer America) hit the road for the first time this season when they travel to Lexington, Kentucky for the UK Invitational this weekend, September 7-9. First, the 49ers play Stony Brook, Friday, September 7 at 4:30 pm. Then, the 49ers conclude the weekend against future Conference USA opponent Kentucky, Sunday, September 9 at 2:30 pm. Kentucky plays in Conference USA in men's soccer.
Aidan Kirkbride leads the 49ers in goals with two after scoring both of Charlotte's goals in their 2-1 double overtime win over Denver in their season opener, August 25. Thomas Allen, who was just named to Soccer America's National Team of the Week, and Donnie Smith have each scored a goal this season as well.
The 49ers defense behind the play of goalkeeper Klay Davis and defenders Allen, Anthony Perez, Nick Barnhorst and Biko Bradnock-Brennan has been stellar this season. The 49ers have only allowed two goals and 20 shots in over 314 minutes of action this year.
This weekend will mark the first time that Charlotte has ever played Stony Brook and Kentucky. The 49ers are playing in their first regular-season tournament since the 2009 season.
