The stage is set differently for VCU men’s soccer heading into late September matchups this season than it was last year.
On a night without any sporting event taking place in the Siegel Center, the arena is usually silent. That was far from the case Wednesday night when VCU hosted its inaugural pep rally.
Men’s soccer’s five ties were the most since the 2012-13 season. That year, head coach Dave Giffard and his team were able to advance to the Atlantic 10 championships, finishing as runner-ups in the conference.
