brescia bearcats sports 300OWENSBORO, Ky. (8/30/13) - The Kentucky Wesleyan Panthers and the Brescia Bearcats men's soccer teams are scheduled to face off for the much anticipated "Mayor's Cup" on Sept 30.

Although the teams meet annually, this is the first official "Mayor's Cup" in more than a decade. According to, the Mayor's office has endorsed the game and the Mayor, or a representative from his office, will be at the game to present the Cup to the winning team.

"Ultimately, that's huge," Brescia's head coach, Mo Cato, said. "It shows that he supports both teams and both schools. That says a lot about each program."

Kentucky Wesleyan's head coach, John Fusco, described this game as a "tradition."

"I think it's great for the soccer community," Fusco said.

This event also supports our local community. Admission will be open to the public and free of charge. However, both teams are asking game-goers to donate a canned item at the entrance. All proceeds will go to a local food bank.

The game will kick-off in KWC's Steele Stadium at 6:30 p.m.
