RALEIGH, N.C. – The Shaw University men's soccer team returns to action on Wednesday, Sept. 11 to host the Barton Bulldogs at the MAC Sports & Entertainment Complex (8924 Midway West Road, Raleigh, NC 27617). Kickoff is slated for 6 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.

This will be the second meeting in program history between the Bears and the Bulldogs. Barton scored goals in both segments for a 2-0 victory over the Bears on Oct.18, 2017 in Wilson, NC.

Shaw will be looking to continue its winning ways coming off an exciting season opening 2-1 OT victory over Bloomsburg last Sunday at the MAC. Freshman Brandon Linares (Kenersville, NC) and senior Andre Matzuda each scored goals for the Bears answering a quick goal from the Huskies. Matzuda was credited with the game winner to push the Bears record to 1-0 on the early season.

The Barton Bulldogs travel to Raleigh also with a 1-0 record early into the 2019 season. The Bulldogs opened the season with a 3-2 victory over Catawba in Wilson last weekend. Barton finished its 2018 campaign 8-7-1. The Bulldogs are a member of Conference Carolinas.
