GREENSBORO, N.C. - UNCG women's soccer rides an offensive hot streak and a two-match winning streak into the weekend, hosting visiting East Carolina this Saturday at 7 p.m.

The Spartans have hit the back of the net 10 times between their last two contests, delivering back-to-back wins over Gardner-Webb and Elon by scores of 6-0 and 4-3 respectively. UNCG has shown both offensive prowess and the ability to grind out matches over the past week, routing the Bulldogs from start to finish and fighting off a Phoenix squad that tallied three equalizers before succumbing to a loss in Greensboro.
