+ UNCG hosts defending Southern Conference champ Wofford in another key SoCon match-up. Wofford, off to an 0-4 start in the league after winning the title last season, needs a win to get back into the race for a home quarterfinal match. The Spartans, meanwhile, are in the middle of the pack after a pair of ties in their last two matches.
+ UNCG is coming off a scoreless tie at Davidson on Saturday night. The Spartans had their chances to win it in the second half, with Eli Garner's shot cleared off the line by a defender early in the second half and Michael Bonilla's shot clanking off the post with 10 minutes to play.
+ Wofford has struggled on the road this season, going 0-6 away from home, including 0-2 in league play. The Terriers, who won the league with a strong defense last season, haven't had a strong offense this season, either. Wofford has scored just nine goals in 11 matches, with four of those coming against cross-city rival USC Upstate. Wofford lost its last outing at Elon, 2-1, on Saturday night.
+ UNCG has now had three of its four SoCon matches decided in overtime – a 1-0 loss to Elon, a 2-2 tie with No. 25-ranked College of Charleston and a 0-0 tie at Davidson.
+ Wilson Hood (3g, 1a) and Armin Kinigadner (1g, 5a) are tied for the team lead in points with seven. Andrew Drennan is Wofford's primary goalkeeper, recording a 1.37 GAA in 988 minutes of action. He has a .717 save percentage.
+ Hakan Ilhan leads the Spartans in scoring with 12 points (4g, 4a). He leads in goals and is tied with Aaron Reifschneider for the team lead in assists with four. Peyton Ford is UNCG's goalkeeper, logging a 1.30 GAA and .731 save percentage in 1242 minutes of action.
+ The Spartans hit the road and step out of conference on Friday when they visit Gardner-Webb for a 7 p.m. match.
