Demopolis soccer to host Meridian

Demopolis’ River City Soccer program’s All-Stars will host Meridian in a series of matches at the Demopolis Sports-Plex Saturday.

“Meridian has never traveled to Demopolis and has won most games in the past,” said Craig Schumacher, a River City Soccer organizer and coach. “We have had two match-ups with Selma on the last two Tuesdays in Demopolis. We won most of the games. They were prep games for the big match-up Saturday against Meridian.”

Games will begin at 9 a.m., with the final games starting at noon. Three teams will take the field against Meridian – the Under 10 team sponsored by Naheola Credit Union, the Under 12 team sponsored by Collins Communication and the Under 19 team sponsored by Sweet Water State Bank.

Each team will play two games. The scheduled is arranged so that the event will wrap up around 1 p.m.

“We really can’t play a higher caliber organization (than Meridian),” Schumacher said. “Keep in mind the representation the City of Demopolis gets, as well as revenue generation from these events.”

Concessions will be available at Saturday’s event.
