CHAPEL HILL– The string of road games for the UNC women’s soccer team continues Thursday night at 7 p.m. when they take on new conference member Pittsburgh.

The Tar Heels and the Panthers will be meeting for the first time in history. The contest will be staged at Peterson Sports Complex on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh.

So far this season, the Tar Heels have spent the majority of their time away from Chapel Hill. After Thursday’s game, UNC will have played eight of its first 11 games on the road.

Despite the brutal stretch, Coach Anson Dorrance’s defending national champs sit a respectable 8-2 on the season and 2-2 in the ACC. The Panthers are winless in their four conference match-ups.

Tar Heel fans can catch the game on ESPN3 via Pitt Panthers TV.
