For the first time this season, the Carolina men’s soccer team is ranked among the top 25 teams in the nation. After a season-opening upset of then-No. 12 Clemson last Friday, the Gamecocks have soared into the top 25 in three polls. Ranking the highest in the NSCAA (National Soccer Coaches Association of America) poll in the 15th position, the Gamecocks also rank 19th in the poll and 23rd according to College Soccer News.

The Gamecocks most recently defeated Presbyterian College, 4-0, on Tuesday night. Pacing the offensive attack was freshman Sam Arthur with two goals and one assist, while sophomore defender Mark Wiltse and sophomore midfielder Jeff Scannella each registered one tally. Freshman forward Blake Brettschneider also contributed two assists in the Gamecock victory.

Carolina continues the non-conference portion of its schedule this weekend at the UConn adidas Classic in Storrs, Conn., Sept. 7-8. USC opens tournament action against host UConn on Friday at 7 p.m., followed by a 4 p.m. contest against USF on Saturday.
