BALTIMORE - The UMBC men's soccer program will compete on six dates against outside competition this spring, highlighted by the Fourth Annual "Kicks for Chase" as the Retrievers welcome George Mason to Retriever Soccer Park on Friday, April 15. Kick-off time is slated for 7:30 p.m.
Kicks for Chase began in 2013 in memory of Chase Bugarin. Chase, son of UMBC soccer standout Bryan Bugarin ('95) and his wife Amy, was born with Down Syndrome and severe complications. In his honor, UMBC began "Kicks for Chase" to raise money for children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Retrievers have hosted Georgetown, Maryland and Villanova in the first three years of this special event.
UMBC opens the spring campaign on Sunday, March 6 when they welcome the USL's Harrisburg City Islanders at UMBC Stadium with a 4:00 p.m. kick-off. The Retriever varsity will host the alumni to close the slate on Sat., April 23.
