Fireworks after the Sept. 27 soccer game

A couple items regarding the Charlotte 49ers:

-- Amtrak and the 49ers' athletic department have partnered to provide a post-game fireworks display following the Sept. 27 men's soccer game between Charlotte and Elon at Transamerica Field. The game begins at 7 p.m. and the fireworks will start immediately following the game. Tickets for the game is $5 and available in advance by calling the 49ers ticket office at (704) 687-4949.

-- Two days after leading her team to victory at the Bojangles Invitational, Amanda Goetschius has been named this week’s Atlantic 10 cross country performer of the week. Goestschius, who was named all-conference last season, beat the 90-person field by 13 seconds Saturday and was the only runner to run under 19 minutes.
