Lady Cougars face second-place Lander

Columbus State's women's soccer team faces Peach Belt Conference foe Lander Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at the Jeff May Complex in Greenwood, S.C.

The Lady Bearcats are currently in second place with 21 points. CSU has 18 points. With a win today, the Lady Cougars can climb into a tie for second place.

"Our players know that Lander is a very tough team and that Saturday's match is huge for this season," said head coach Jay Entlich. "We trained hard after the loss to North Georgia on Wednesday and I believe it will pay dividends on the field."

CSU will be looking to avoid its third straight loss today. The Lady Cougars have never lost three straight matches during the 10-year history of the program.
