AUBURN, Ala. -
The Auburn soccer team will play host to Vanderbilt on Friday at 7:30pm CT in the second annual "Power In Pink" match-up between the two schools. All donations made at the match will benefit the East Alabama Medical Center Foundation Breast Cancer Fund.
"We are happy to be back at home and we are hoping for a big crowd on Friday night. This is a big weekend for us," Auburn Head Coach Karen Hoppa said after the team played two games on the road last weekend. "The girls will be wearing pink jerseys and Wilson has sent us pink game balls, so it's a great cause and also a big match for the team."
Auburn is 5-6-3, 2-4-0 SEC while Vanderbilt is 7-6-1, 1-5-0 SEC. Auburn's six points in conference play places it seventh in the overall conference standings while Vanderbilt is 11th with three points.
Auburn is 4-6-2 all-time against Vanderbilt, winning each of the last two meetings by a goal. Last year in the first "Power In Pink" match held in Nashville, Tenn., Auburn claimed a 3-2 win.
Fans are encouraged to wear pink to the match and the first 250 fans into the gates will receive a beanbag koozie from Verizon Wireless.
Following the Vanderbilt match, Auburn will play Kentucky at 1pm on Sunday.
Admission to both matches is free.
