The seniors from Washington County’s girls and boys high school soccer teams will gather one more time to play for a cause.

The game will feature the senior players, divided into East and West teams. The East teams will include South, Smithsburg, Boonsboro and Goretti high schools. 

The West teams will consist of Clear Spring, Williamsport, North and Hancock players.

Tickets cost $4 for adults and $2 for children.

Besides ticket sales, the Clear Spring Athletic Boosters will donate all of the proceeds from the sales at the concession stand.

Fans can also contribute to the cause and there will be a raffle.
