+ The Spartans continue their four-match homestand on Wednesday when cross-state rival Campbell visits. The teams will be meeting for the 20th time. UNCG holds a 14-4-1 advantage in the all-time series. UNCG has won the last 10 meetings between the schools, including a 2-0 win on the road last season. Campbell hasn't beaten UNCG since 1994, which was in Buies Creek, 4-2. One-time Big South rivals, Campbell beat UNCG in 1992 to win the conference tournament title and UNCG gained a measure of revenge the following year in the title match.
+ UNCG has won six in a row at UNCG Soccer Stadium during regular season action. (The North Carolina match this year was an exhibition). UNCG's last loss at home was to College of Charleston on Oct. 10, 2009.
+ UNCG is coming off a pair of impressive wins last week - a 2-1 win over William & Mary and a 1-0 victory over Navy. The two wins knocked both teams from the ranks of the unbeaten and likely cost both a shot at the Top 25 this week. More impressively in the win over Navy, UNCG shut out a Navy team that had scored 13 goals in its first four matches – the most by the Mids to start a season since 1974.
+ The two wins last week pushed the Spartans back into the NSCAA South Region rankings this week. UNCG is No. 8 in the region currently. UNCG enters Wednesday's match with a three-match winning streak.
+ A surprising stat for the Spartans – UNCG is 180th out of 201 teams nationally in save percentage (.619). Last year, Peyton Ford led the Southern Conference in saves with 92 and had a .793 save percentage. However, part of that number is due to the fact that the Spartan backline is allowing fewer shots on goal this season. UNCG has allowed just 21 shots on goal in the first six matches (3.5 per contest), as opposed to 151 in 19 matches last season (7.95 per match).
+ The Camels come in with a 1-2-2 mark after beating Charlotte, 2-1, on Saturday night. Khalil Johnson scored twice for CU in the win and earned Atlantic Sun Conference Player of the Week honors for his effort. He scored in the 60th and 75th minutes to lift Campbell to the win. Charlotte, who UNCG beat by the same 2-1 score to open the season, was coming off a 2-0 win at Wake Forest.
+ Seven of UNCG's eight goals this season have been scored by freshmen and sophomores. Matt Strine's tally against Navy was the first goal by an upperclassman this season.
+ UNCG will host Wake Forest on Saturday night for Homecoming. Game time is set for 7 p.m.
