PITTSBURGH – Off to its best start in 26 years, the Pitt men’s soccer team looks to stretch its winning streak to six games when they open Big East play versus Cincinnati on Saturday evening. The Panthers entertain the Bearcats at 7 p.m. at Ambrose Urbanic Field at the Petersen Sports Complex.
Pitt (6-0-2) holds a 10-12-5 record in Big East openers. The Panthers, who were ranked 10th in the NSCAA/Continental Tire Northeast poll this week, are one of six teams in the league who remain unbeaten.
The Bearcats enter Saturday’s game with a 3-4-1 record, having posted a 1-0 win over Gardner-Webb in their last contest.
Freshman Nick Wysong scored twice to lead Pitt to a 2-0 win over Robert Morris on Wednesday evening in its last matchup. Wysong has registered all five of his team-best goals in the past three games. He shares the team lead with Nico Wrobel, who has also collected five scores. Six players have scored for the Panthers this season.
Pitt’s five-game win streak is the longest since 2002.
