FULTON – ICC soccer coach Mike Sullivan has announced the Lady Indians and Indians will host East Central Community College at the Tupelo Sportsplex on Wednesday.

“This has become a really fun tradition for our program over the past few years,” said Sullivan.

“It’s something we always look forward to each season. The people over the facilities do an outstanding job getting things in prime condition for us and the players really enjoy showcasing their talents in front what has traditionally been one of our bigger crowds of the season.”

The Lady Indians (4-10-0) will get things started at 5:00 p.m. and the Indians (8-5-2) will take the field and 7:00 p.m. in hopes to take another step closer to capturing this season’s MACJC North Division title with a win.

The Indians can lock the North Division title with a win along with a Hinds win over Holmes, but with a Holmes win over Hinds the Indians would have to defeat East Central and would have to win or tie with Holmes on Friday to earn the division crown.

Sophomore striker Hil Fradenburg leads the state and ranks amongst the nation’s best in goals and points scored.

“Hil is having an outstanding season for us,” said Sullivan. “More importantly all the guys are starting to come together as a team at the right time of the season. Hopefully we can continue to gel and have a strong finish to the regular season to carry some momentum into the playoffs.”

The Tupelo Christian Prep graduate is ranked 5th in the nation with 18 goals and 15th with 39 points on the season.
