Bobcat Soccer to Host “Kick for the Cure” Saturday

MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – When the Georgia College soccer team takes on the University of Montevallo Saturday, Oct. 26 at 3 p.m. at Bobcat Field, not only will it serve as Senior Day, but it will be the program's annual "Kick for the Cure" event.

The Bobcats will wear their special "Kick for the Cure" jerseys. The jerseys will be offered up for silent auction during the contest, with the winners receiving their prize from the players themselves at the end of the game. All proceeds of the auction will of course go to Breast Cancer Research.

All fans are encouraged to wear pink in support of the cause, and will receive additional Bobcat Fan Rewards points for doing so.

The game will be a crucial Peach Belt Conference (PBC) contest for the Bobcats, as they continue to fight for the top four slots in the conference standings, and the right to host an opening-round playoff game. The Montevallo Falcons are on the cusp of the playoff picture, needing a win to further solidify their entry.

The match will also be the final regular-season home contest for Anna Barrow (St. Simons, Ga.) a four-year player who has seen action in 49 total games as a strong defensive player for the Bobcats.

Action begins Saturday, Oct. 26 at Bobcat Field on West Campus with first kick at 3 p.m.
