ECU Soccer Hosts UNCW, George Washington This Weekend
Sep 5, 2013
GREENVILLE, N.C. – Coming off a thrilling double overtime victory over Western Carolina on Monday, the East Carolina women’s soccer team will return to the field when it hosts UNC Wilmington at 7 p.m., on Friday, Sept. 5, before welcoming George Washington for a 2 p.m., tilt on Sunday afternoon at the ECU Soccer Stadium.
After splitting a pair of matches against UNC Greensboro and Western Carolina at its own ECU Soccer Tournament, the Pirates will look to build on its 2-1-1 record this season. In Monday’s double overtime win over the Catamounts, junior Lexi Miller scored her third-career game-winning goal, and first of the 2013 season, in the 111th minute. The goal came on her team-leading sixth shot of the season.
Miller, junior forward Stephanie Seagrave and freshman defender Caitlin Hite were named to the All-ECU Soccer Tournament team for their performances over the two games.
The Pirates and Seahawks met last season, as ECU escaped with a 2-1 road victory on a Chrissy Gratz game-winner in the 87th minute to snap UNCW’s five-game winning streak.
Sunday’s contest between East Carolina and George Washington will be the inaugural meeting between the two squads.
