Baltimore, Md.-- UMBC men's soccer head coach Pete Caringi Jr. announced the team's spring schedule, that features four dates at Retriever Soccer Park, highlighted by the seventh annual "Kicks for Chase" game on April 13. The Retrievers are coming off a 10-6-4, 4-3-1 AE season that saw the team reach the America East Championship game, ultimately falling to New Hampshire 5-0.

The Retrievers kick off the spring season against both CCBC Catonsville and Frederick Community College on March 29. UMBC will play at 5 and 7 p.m. with CCBC Catonsville and Frederick Community College play at 6 p.m. The following Saturday UMBC will travel to Washington, D.C. for a date with American University at noon before returning home for the last three games of the season.

The spring will end with games against Saint Joseph's on Friday April 19 and the annual Alumni Game on April 26, both at Retriever Soccer Park.

The seventh annual "Kicks for Chase" game will be held at Retriever Soccer Park on Saturday, April 13 against La Salle at 5 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, Villanova, George Mason, American, and Delaware in the first six years of this special event. T-shirts will be available starting the week of April 1, as well as the week leading up to the game on select days for $15. Be sure to follow the men's soccer team on Twitter @UMBCMensSoccer for dates, times and locations.
