By Maegan Murray, WSU Tri-Cities

RICHLAND, Wash. – Soccer and rugby club teams will hold their only home games this season beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7, at Washington State University Tri-Cities. Games are free to the public.

A tailgate rally for both teams will be noon-1 p.m. in the WSU Tri-Cities parking lot. Free hotdogs from Between the Buns will be given to the first 100 students.

T-shirts for both teams will be for sale for $15 during both games.

The rugby team will begin at 1 p.m. on the Crimson Field across the street from WSU Tri-Cities. The soccer game will follow at 3 p.m. on the Hanford High School soccer field next to the Crimson Field.

The soccer game is the team’s first at home. The rugby team is home after playing a handful of games on the road. In October, the team won the Northwest Cup Sevens Tournament at Central Oregon Community College in Bend.
