CIU Downs Toccoa Falls, 1-0, To Make Program History

August 27, 2015

Aug. 26, 2015 is an historic day in the history of Columbia International University athletics. 

The Columbia International University women's soccer team prevailed in its first-ever contest, notching the game's only goal in the 85th minute to defeat Toccoa Falls College in a match played in Toccoa Falls, Georgia. 

Ironically, when the CIU men's soccer team played its first-ever match, also against Toccoa Falls College in 2012, they also won 1-0 on a goal late in the game.

The women's soccer team will play its first-ever home match this Saturday, Aug. 29 at 7 p.m. against Wake Tech College. That will be preceded by the CIU men's soccer match against Laurel University at 5 p.m.
