Final Home Game Tonight

Tonight, the Lions look to bounce back after an overtime loss, on Friday. For tonight’s final home game, Linn-Mar will host the Cedar Falls Tigers.  The Tigers return to Marion, after winning both games at the Linn-Mar Challenger Cup, in early April. As we traditionally do, we will also celebrate 10 Seniors and 2 Foreign-Exchange players, and their contributions to the Linn-Mar Mens Soccer program.

Due to the weather, tonight’s schedule has been altered:
📍 JV1 & Varsity host Cedar Falls, @ LM Stadium
⚽️ Varsity, 5:15pm
👤 Senior Recognition, 6:45pm
⚽️ JV1, 7:00pm

ALSO… the JV2 team is in action this afternoon.  They are on the road at Lower Kingston Field to take on the Jefferson J-Hawks.  The game will kickoff at 4:15, not 5:45 as previously published. Bus leaves at 2:45, players are dismissed at 2:30pm.

Last Meeting

In 2017, the Lions defeated the Tigers 1-0, in the final game of the regular season.  Both teams had their season ended just one-game later, in their opening-round Substate game.


Lions regroup, ready themselves for late run

Tonight, the Lions will try to bounce back from their first loss in four games, and start a new win streak, with four regular season games remaining.  The Varsity-only contest will begin at 5:15 at Linn-Mar Stadium, as Linn-Mar hosts Waterloo East.

Last Meeting

In 2017, the Lions beat the Trojans 4-0, on the road.
