The McNeese State soccer team returns to the pitch on Friday to honor three seniors who have made an impact on the program during their careers when the Cowgirls take on Southland Conference newcomer Incarnate Word in a 7 p.m. match.

Seniors Callie Allbright, Johna Germany and Megan Snelling will be recognized by their teammates prior to the match.

Allbright, a native of Baton Rouge, La., has been the team captain for the Cowgirls for the past two seasons and has started 61 games in her career. The senior defender has been the anchor for the Cowgirl defense while scoring 10 total points throughout her four years. Allbright scored her first career goal against Jacksonville State last season that led to a 1-1 double overtime tie. The goal helped spark a season high four-game unbeaten streak. She has also recorded 8 total assists, three of which has come during the 2013 season.

Germany, a native of Tyler, Texas, has placed her name in the McNeese soccer record book along with some of the top Cowgirls who have taken the pitch during their careers. The senior midfielder, who has started 50 games during her four years, has accumulated 39 total points placing her seventh on the all-time scoring list while her 14 total goals gives her a fifth place ranking on the all-time goals scored list. Her 11 assists places her tied for sixth all-time. She also ranks seventh on the all-time shots attempted list with 89 and has three game-winning goals in her career. Germany was selected as Louisiana Freshman of the Year in 2010 and was also named to the All-Southland second team as a freshman. She was named first team All-Louisiana in 2011.

Snelling, a native of Cypress, Texas, has played in 42 games and started in 22 during her career as Cowgirl. The senior defender has helped the McNeese soccer team record 18 shutouts against their opponents including a shutout of then-No. 7 ranked Baylor earlier in the 2013 season when the Cowgirls tied with the Bears, 0-0, in double overtime. Snelling was also named to the Southland Conference Commissioner's Honor Roll in 2011 and 2012.

Incarnate Word (9-6-0, 3-5-0 SLC) comes to Lake Charles for the first time in program history on Friday. The Cardinals recently were defeated by Houston Baptist and Abilene Christian over the weekend. Incarnate Word is led by Katie Miller who has 21 points (9 goals and 3 assists) on the season, while Sydney Solomon has five tallies and six assists along with Abigail Koenigs who has six goals.

After Friday's match, the Cowgirls will host their final home game of the year when they welcome Abilene Christian to Lake Charles for the first time in program history on Sunday at 1 p.m.
