Here is the Huskies Update for Wednesday, Sept. 30th.

Ok...where did September go? Who can tell me how a month can fly by so fast. Hard to believe we are halfway the fall season.

Well in the matchup of #1 versus #2....#2 prevailed as the Huskies beat Shippensburg 5-1. Bloomsburg scored just 27 seconds into the game on a goal by Maggey Bloskey, then added a second goal just 2 minutes later. Bloomsburg is now 10-1 on the year and plays at Kutztown on Saturday night at 7 p.m.

The men's and women's soccer teams travel to West Chester today for a battle with the Golden Rams. Start time for the women is at 2 p.m., while the men play at 4 p.m.

Bloomsburg University men's soccer coach Paul Payne has announced the development of 'Red Card Cancer,' a program designed to bring awareness through the soccer coaching community in the fight against cancer.

'Red Card Cancer' will be an annual event to be held the first Saturday of October (Oct. 3 this year) and will feature the men's and women's soccer teams of the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference joining in the battle to fight cancer.

On the day of the game, teams will wear specially designed t-shirts during pregame warm-ups that will feature the "Red Card Cancer" logo. A collection will be taken up during the game for the American Cancer Society.

"Everyone has been touched in some way by cancer," said Payne. "Those of us in soccer community have lost some influential people the last few years. Joe Bochicchio, a long time coach of the women's program at the University of Scranton, and Charlotte Moran, who was the president of the Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer Association (EPYSA) and was one of the most active organizers for girls' and women's soccer in America, have been taken from us by this dreaded disease. It is time we help in the fight and finally hand a red card to cancer."

Payne hopes to grow this program into a national event in the next few years. "It would be so rewarding to see the first Saturday in October set aside for the 'Red Card Cancer' event," Payne continued. "The more money we raise the sooner that cancer could be given a permanent seat on the sidelines."

Any team wishing to purchase the official t-shirt for the event should go to Angelo's Soccer Corner web site at www.soccercorner.com . All the money raised from the sale of the t-shirts will go to the Red Card Cancer program.

Among the colleges and universities that will be participating in this program are Shippensburg University, West Chester, Slippery Rock, Mansfield, Susquehanna University, the University of Scranton, Clarion, Millersville and East Stroudsburg along with Abington Heights High School in Lackawanna County.
