Major Division I soccer returns to Rockdale Youth Soccer Association for the third straight year.
Two and a half weeks after hosting eight spring matches, RYSA will host a Division I exhibition women's game, pitting Georgia against Georgia State.
The Bulldogs and Panthers will face off at RYSA Tuesday, April 9 at 7 p.m.
"We wanted to have a marque-type game during spring," Mauran said.
It's the third-straight year RYSA has hosted a women's college game, bringing high-level soccer to the area, and giving its young players a chance to see elite players.
"It's good for our kids," Mauran said. "To get that close to it and see how college players carry themselves in warm-ups and during matches, and how they react to different situations is important for our kids."
