The Auburn soccer team will close out the home portion of its schedule on Thursday night when it plays host to Georgia in a key Southeastern Conference match at 7 pm CT at the Auburn Soccer Complex. Auburn enters the match 9-5-1, 5-3-0 SEC, and tied with LSU for first place in the Western Division with just three matches remaining.
Auburn is a perfect 7-0-0 at home this season, but will face a tough challenge from Georgia, which has not lost in Auburn since 1997.
"The Auburn-Georgia rivalry is very strong in soccer, just like football, as we have a lot of kids from Georgia on our team and our players have played against their players for many years," Auburn Head Coach Karen Hoppa said. "It is our last home game of the season, which is always special."
Thursday night is All-Auburn, All-Orange at the soccer match and the first 250 fans through the gates will receive a Cram the Complex t-shirt. Prior to the start of the match the team will recognize Summer Ragsdale, who is forgoing her final year of eligibility to graduate on time.
After facing Georgia on Thursday, Auburn will hit the road for its last regular-season matches of the 2007 season. The Tigers will play at Tennessee on Sunday at 2 pm ET before heading across the state to Alabama for the annual Iron Bowl of Soccer in Tuscaloosa on Friday, Nov. 2, at 7 pm.
