CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

The Charlotte 49ers men’s soccer team plays High Point at Transamerica Field in their first exhibition game, Monday, August 13 at 7 p.m. Admission is free to Monday’s game.

This marks the second straight season that Charlotte and High Point have played each other in an exhibition game.

Last season, Charlotte defeated High Point, 1-0, behind a goal by Daniel Bruce.

The 49ers finished that game with a 23-1 advantage in shots and a 9-0 advantage in corner kicks.

The 49ers return 15 letterwinners and eight starters off a 2017 team which reached the Conference USA Tournament championship game.

Joining those 15 letterwinners are five redshirt freshmen and seven newcomers on the 49ers’ 2018 roster.

The 49ers are in their seventh season under the direction of head coach Kevin Langan, who earned Conference USA Coach of the Year honors in 2016 after guiding the 49ers to the league’s regular-season title.

Langan has guided the 49ers to five NCAA Tournament berths and 72 wins during his six seasons at the helm of the 49ers men’s soccer program.
