St. Francis soccer kicking against cancer

Monday's boys soccer matchup of St. Joe's at St. Francis should be a great one on the field -- and it should be a great night no matter how the game ends up.

The 7 p.m. game is part of St. Francis' dedication of their season to Kicks Against Breast Cancer.

St. Francis assistant coach Jason Cretacci passed along a note explaining that "Kicks Against Breast Cancer is American soccer’s initiative to raise money to help find a cure for breast cancer and to help women living with cancer to survive and thrive." U.S. National Team and Los Angeles Galaxy star Landon Donovan is serving as the first spokesman for the initiative.

Throughout the year the St. Francis will be wearing a pink patch on their left shoulder to show their support, while during Monday's game the teams will use a special pink Kicks Against Cancer soccer ball.
