SPARTANBURG, S.C. - USC Upstate men's soccer defender Nick Buxton is playing his final season in a Spartan uniform. The Towcester, England native scored two goals last week in a thrilling game with Davidson. Buxton's goals came in the second-minute and the 90th-minute.
Buxton and the rest of his Spartan teammates will host Wofford on Friday night at County University Soccer Stadium at 7:00 p.m. This will be the second straight season the Spartans and the Terriers square off after taking a 20-year break in the series.
Buxton sat down recently with Alex Edwards of Upstatespartans.com to discuss his time at Upstate as well as goals when his career is over.
