    GREENSBORO, NC – The UNC Greensboro men’s soccer team scored three goals in the first seven minutes of play and never looked back, as the top-ranked Spartans downed Wofford, 5-0, in Southern Conference action Tuesday evening at the UNCG Soccer Stadium. With the win, UNCG clinched a home quarterfinal round game in the Southern Conference Tournament.

    UNCG has won all nine meeting in the series with the Terriers, outscoring them by a 47-3 margin.

    The Spartans (13-0-1, 5-0-1 SoCon) blanked their fifth consecutive opponent at home this season. The last team to score against the Spartans at the UNCG Soccer Stadium was Elon on Sept. 18, a span of 522 minutes, 22 seconds of action. UNCG has allowed only two goals in eight home contests this season.

    The Spartans took command with three goals scored three minutes, 22 seconds apart. The first and third were scored by sophomore Randi Patterson. The forward from Hackensack, N.J., now has 13 goals on the season.

    Junior Egill Atlason scored the second Spartan goal of the game at the 3:37 mark off an assist from sophomore Pat Farrell. The forward from Hafnarfjordur, Iceland, who scored the game-winner in Sunday’s win over Mercer, now has three goals on the season.

    Freshman Matt Smith added another goal just before half on a penalty kick at 35:26. The product of Mebane, N.C. now has four goals on the year.

    Senior Adrian Worthen scored the final goal of the game at the 81:43 mark. Worthen’s goal, his first of the season was unassisted.

    The goalkeeping tandem of Ryan Nowak and Tristan Tulloch combined for the UNCG’s sixth shutout of the season.

    The Spartans return to action on Saturday with a trip to Charlotte to take on the 49ers at 7 p.m., while Wofford (2-11-1, 0-4-1 SoCon) hosts Davidson on Saturday at 6 p.m.

    Very physical, very defensive on the part of coastal, and we did okay. Not our best football, but 2-0 against a decently talented program is not too bad.

    We'll get better scoring as time goes by. Remember Randi is a sophomore, Matt Smith is a freshman and they are our two most dangerous guys besides Phil Long and he is new to the program.
