This weekend the women’s soccer team will take to the pitch for the final homestand of the 2012 season. But it won’t be any ordinary weekend. With homecoming spirit flowing through campus, the soccer program will be celebrating along with Gopher fans by offering two theme days to round out the festivities.
Friday’s match against Illinois will also serve as Breast Cancer Awareness Day. The Maroon and Gold are going pink and pairing with Susan G. Komen for the Cure to raise funds for research and awareness for the cause. Fans are encouraged to donate for a chance to win a pink soccer jersey, autographed by the Gopher squad. A post-game autograph session will also take place after the final buzzer. Use GOPHERSGOPINK to receive $4 tickets to the event. Play begins at 7:00 p.m.
As the final home game of the season, Sunday’s match-up against Northwestern is also Senior Day. The 2012 roster boasts seven individuals that are competing in their final season this fall. Nicole Baier, Olivia Bagnall, Cat Parkhill, Allie Phillips, Marissa Price, Tamara Strahota, and Jackie Voigt will be celebrated for their accomplishments and contributions to the Golden Gophers during a presentation at halftime. Receive $4 tickets using the discount code MINNESOTAGOLD. Kick-off is set for 1:00 p.m.
