Auburn soccer looks to get back in the win column this Saturday when the Tigers take on Georgia at the Auburn Soccer Complex.

Auburn (5-5-3) is coming off a tightly contested 1-0 loss at No. 9 Clemson last Saturday. Clemson’s goal in the 84th minute snapped a 351-minute shutout streak for Auburn that dates back to the fall SEC Tournament game against Arkansas. Georgia (3-5-2) is also looking to get back on track entering Saturday’s match. The Bulldogs lost 3-1 against Ole Miss last Saturday.

Midfielder Anna Haddock will likely play a major role for Auburn as the Tigers try to earn the three points from the match. Haddock leads Auburn with seven assists and nine points this season. The return of Sydney Richards should also provide a boost for Auburn. Richards leads the Tigers with four goals this season and is getting acclimated back in the lineup as she made her first appearance of the spring season last match. 

Goalkeeper Maddie Prohaska has been reliable between the posts for Auburn. The freshman leads the SEC with a .826 save percentage and is third in the conference with four shutouts. Auburn’s defense has conceded the third fewest goals in the SEC this season, allowing just 13.

Prohaska and the Auburn defense will be tasked with stopping Georgia’s Abby Boyan, who leads Georgia with four goals this season. Mollie Belisle has three goals on the season for Georgia, including the Bulldogs lone goal last game.

Auburn aims to get Head Coach Karen Hoppa her 250th career win at Auburn this Saturday. Kickoff between Auburn and Georgia is set for 1 p.m. CT, and the game can be listened to on WEGL 91.1 FM.
