SALISBURY, Md. – The Salisbury University men's soccer team recently hosted Penn State Altoona, Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and St. Mary's College of Maryland for the Elmer Lord Classic from Aug. 31 to Sept. 1 in support of the Red Card Cancer Initiative.
The teams combined to help raise $1,400 to donate to the organization over the weekend. The total exceeded the Sea Gulls' goal of $1,000. The program, which was founded in 2009 by a past president of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, Paul Payne, is a soccer-oriented program designed to help in the fight against cancer.
Salisbury came out on top in the tournament after defeating Penn State Altoona, 6-0, and Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, 1-0.
Senior midfielder Jeremy Moyer was named the tournament Most Valuable Player after registering two points on two assists in the games.
Salisbury will be back in action on Saturday as they travel to St. Mary's College of Maryland for the St. Mary's Classic. The Gulls will take on Centenary (N.J.) College in their first game which is set for 4 p.m.
