LOS ANGELES – Loyola Marymount men’s and women’s soccer kicked off their spring season this weekend with a community service activity and their first competitions. 

On Saturday, both the men and women’s teams took part in Cycle For Survival which is an annual indoor team cycling event  to raise money to help fight rare forms of cancer including brain, pancreatic, ovarian, thyroid, stomach, leukemia and lymphoma, all pediatric cancers and many others.  This year 23 locations across the United States participated on the day.  Together the two teams raised $5,830 towards the cause and enjoyed spending time with other members of the Los Angeles community in the fight against cancer.  For more information on the event, click here: https://www.cycleforsurvival.org/about-us

The men’s team traveled to Cal Baptist University in the morning before their cycling shift that evening and played the Lancers to a 2-2 draw.  The women cycled in two shifts on Saturday morning and then traveled to Cal State Northridge on Sunday morning where they played to a scoreless draw before returning back home to Sullivan Field in the afternoon to face Concordia University.  The Lions found the back of the net in their second game of the day with a 5-1 victory over the Eagles.
