MARS HILL, N.C. – In a battle between regionally-ranked teams, No. 21 Anderson outpaced Mars Hill, 1-0, in South Atlantic Conference men’s soccer action Sunday afternoon at Meares Stadium.  

Anderson (9-2, 4-0 SAC), the third-ranked team in the Southeast Region, extended its win streak to seven matches – which equals last season’s as the longest in school history - and has won nine of its last 10 contests, while Mars Hill (7-4, 4-2 SAC), ranked fourth in the Southeast Region, suffered its second consecutive setback after winning four in a row. 

With the win, the Trojans kept pace with Lincoln Memorial (4-0) and Tusculum (3-0) as the only undefeated teams in league play, while the Lions slipped into fourth place in the SAC standings.

Anderson closes out its four-match road swing Wednesday with a conference matchup at Brevard. Kick-off is scheduled for 4 p.m. at the BC Soccer Field.
