Thanks to a high volume of rain in the forecast over the next two days, the Lee men’s soccer team will travel to North Georgia to face No. 11 Young Harris College on Tuesday for a 7 p.m. kickoff. The match was originally scheduled to be a home contest.
The schedule shakeup continues for first-year coach Derek Potteiger and his Flames (1-0-2). Lee was supposed to play a pair of matches in Florida last weekend but due to Hurricane Irma those matches were canceled and Lee ended up hosting No. 13 Palm Beach Atlantic on Thursday. The Flames and Sailfish battled to a 0-0 draw as Lee keeper Tristan Putnam and the defense have now posted two clean sheets to start the season.
The venue change was made in part because the Mountain Lions have a turf field. The Flames are no strangers to the artificial playing surface, as they were forced to play their opener with Trevecca on a turf field at Boyd-Buchanan.
The Mountain Lions (2-1-1) are coming off a 2-1 overtime loss at Lincoln Memorial on Saturday. Young Harris posted two shutouts to start the season with a 2-0 win over Eckerd and 5-0 drubbing of Southern Wesleyan. The Georgia club tied Tusculum, 1-1 last Wednesday.
After the midweek clash with Young Harris, the Flames will enter Gulf South Conference play hosting Delta State on Friday at 7 p.m. Fans are invited to come out for a special Lee Soccer Field Tailgate event to celebrate the start of conference play. The women's team will kick off the event at 5 p.m. Food will be served hot off the grill, and corn hole boards will be set up for fans to enjoy during the doubleheader.
