GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Virginia Tech men's soccer team will play in a first round match against North Carolina State on Monday, Nov. 7 at 1 p.m. in the opening game of the 2011 Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Soccer Tournament, the conference office announced today.

Eighth-seeded NC State (6-10-2 overall, 2-6 ACC) will face ninth-seeded Tech (4-12-2, 1-6-1) at North Carolina's Fetzer Field in Chapel Hill, N.C. This will be the fourth meeting in the ACC Tournament between the Hokies and Wolfpack. The two teams also met in last year's first round in Cary, N.C, where the Wolfpack earned a 6-3 win. The Pack edged the Hokies, 2-1 in overtime, in Raleigh, N.C., earlier this year in regular season conference play.
