Galion’s soccer season winding down

GALION — The second season of fall action is coming to a conclusion for Galion High School’s soccer teams.

Galion’s boys squad will wrap their regular season up, at home, against the visiting Mansfield Senior Tygers on Wednesday, Oct. 11. The Tigers are winless on the season at 0-10-2 overall and will finish at 0-6 in Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference play, but hope to end the season on a high note against a one-win Tygers squad.

For the Lady Tigers, they will finish their season within the conference with two contests against the River Valley Lady Vikings. Galion is currently 1-12 overall and 0-7 within the MOAC. The Tigers traveled to Caledonia to square-off against the Lady Vikings on Tuesday and will welcome River Valley to Galion on Thursday, Oct. 12.

Kick For A Cure

The home match on Thursday will be the Kick For A Cure game and is set to begin at 5 p.m. Both teams will be wearing special uniforms for the match. The team sold Kick For A Cure shirts, with proceeds from those sales being donated to cancer research. At the game on Thursday, there will be a 50/50 raffle as well as a bake sale. The money generated from the game will also be donated to cancer research.
