academica fan night

After defeating Contra Costa FC 2-0 last weekend, Turlock’s semi-professional soccer team Academic SC is tied for first place in the National Premier Soccer League’s Golden Gate Conference with a 4-1 record. The team will fight for sole possession of first place against fellow GGC competitors El Farolito, who are also 4-1, during their home game on Saturday. Academic SC hopes to see the community rally in the stands during the match, which is also Fan Appreciation Night where the first 25 fans will receive free Black & Gold merchandise and everyone can enjoy $2 drinks. Fan Appreciation night — and the battle for first place — will begin at 7 p.m. Saturday at Academica Field, 1343 W. Greenway Ave. in Turlock.
