Boiling Springs, N.C. - The Gardner-Webb men's soccer team will return home this week to host both UNC Asheville and High Point in Big South Conference action at Greene-Harbison Field in Boiling Springs, N.C.

Gardner-Webb (6-6-2, 3-2 Big South) is on a three-match winning streak and will be looking to make it four conference wins in a row on Wednesday night at home against the Asheville Bulldogs at 7 p.m.

The Runnin' Bulldogs, who are a perfect 2-0 at home thus far this season, have outscored their opponents 7-3 over their current three-match winning streak.  In fact, GWU has never trailed during its current winning streak, scoring the first goal in each contest along the way.

While GWU is only 6-7-1 all-time versus the Asheville Bulldogs, the Runnin' Bulldogs have won the last two meetings between these two teams, including a 3-0 win last year in Asheville, N.C.

Asheville, who is 3-7-3 overall and 2-2-1 in conference play thus far this season, will be looking to knock off the Runnin' Bulldogs and climb up in the Big South regular season standings.  The Bulldogs, who are coming off a 3-0 loss to League leading #20 Coastal Carolina last Saturday afternoon, are only 2-4-1 in true road matches this season.

GWU will remain at home to host High Point on Saturday night at 7 p.m. 

The Runnin' Bulldogs have never beaten High Point in men's soccer action, having posted a 0-5-2 record against the Panthers overall.  However, GWU will look to add a first to a season that already includes the program's first ever wins over VCU and Milwaukee, as well as their first ever win at VMI in Lexington, Va.

High Point, who will play at Presbyterian College on Wednesday night, enters play this week at 4-7-2 overall and 1-3-1 in conference play.  The Panthers are coming off back-to-back losses against #20 Coastal Carolina and Radford and will look to get back on the winning track this week.

Both matches will have live stats, which will be available at www.gwusports.com, and are slated to be video streamed live by the Big South Network, presented by State Farm.  The live video feed will be available at www.bigsouthsports.com.
