Braves get Georgia College in PBC opener


PEMBROKE – The fifth-seeded UNC Pembroke baseball team will lock horns with fourth-seeded and 20th-ranked Georgia College on Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in the opening round of the 2014 Peach Belt Conference Championships in Aiken, S.C., the league office announced.


The Braves (33-17) and Bobcats (33-14) will meet for the fourth time this season when the conference event gets underway at USC Aiken’s Roberto Hernandez Stadium on Saturday. Top-seeded and second-ranked Lander (43-6) will battle eighth-seeded Francis Marion (27-21) in the opening game of the single elimination tournament. The winner of that contest gets the winner of UNCP/Georgia College on Sunday.


Georgia College won the first two of a three-game series with the Braves in early March, but UNCP warded off a weekend sweep with a 9-8 triumph over the Bobcats in the series finale. The Braves led in each game of the weekend set.


Sunday’s semifinal games are set for 10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. The championship game of the 2014 PBC Baseball Tournament will be played on Sunday at 5 p.m.


Soccer releases 2014 schedule


PEMBROKE – Seven home matchups, including a four-game home stand in Sept. , as well as a pair of road contests against NCAA tournament participants, highlight the 16-game UNCP mens soccer schedule.


The Braves will kick off the 2014 campaign on Sept. 4 when they travel to Mount Olive, before opening the home portion of the schedule on Sept. 10 against Wingate at Varsity Grounds. A long trip to Georgia Southwestern will open conference play on Sept. 13 and a neutral site game against Brevard on the 16th will precede the lengthy stay in Pembroke.


“Being in the Peach Belt Conference, it’s going to be a tough schedule for us every year,” Hindson said. “We’ve added some difficult games with Wingate, Mars Hill and Erskine to try and put ourselves into a position that, if we win enough games, we have a chance to make the NCAAs.”


The Braves will open up a four-match home stand on Sept. 16 against Pfeiffer and will welcome Montevallo four days later, followed by Barton, Clayton State and Francis Marion over the two-week stretch. The Braves will play six of their final eight regular season matches on the road, including consecutive games against NCAA Tournament participants Flagler and Lander in October.
