The Kentucky men's soccer team opened its 2013 season on Sunday with a 1-0 win over Georgia State at the UK Soccer Complex. The Wildcats will return to action at East Tennessee State on Thursday at 7 p.m. ET in Johnson City, Tenn.

Kentucky (1-0-0) posted a 1-0 win over Georgia State on Sunday to open its 2013 season, getting the first career goal from senior Brad Doliner in the 86th minute. Doliner, a senior who was making his first career start at forward, found a diving header into the top of the netting for the game winner. Doliner was assisted by sophomore Isak Krogstad and Bryan Celis, with the assist marking the first of Krogstad's career and the fifth for Celis.

The Wildcats got a shutout in goal from sophomore Callum Irving, making his first start since a September, 2012 matchup with No. 4 Charlotte. Overall, including UK's exhibition games, the Wildcats have allowed only one goal in 180 minutes, with the lone tally coming after UK was left a man down in the final minutes of an exhibition tilt at 2010 NCAA Division II Champion Northern Kentucky.

Kentucky will hit the road on Thursday for the first of a stretch of four of five games away from the UK Soccer Complex. UK will travel to ETSU on Thursday for a 7 p.m. ET matchup in Johnson City, Tenn. UK returns preseason All-America center back Steven Perinovic and 2012 All-Conference USA performers Jack Van Arsdale and Tyler Riggs. A native of Louisville, Ky., and a candidate for the Senior CLASS Award, Riggs has led UK in three consecutive years.
