Looking for a fun way to spend your Saturday night? Want to watch some of the best high school soccer Massachusetts has to offer and support the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute?
Concord-Carlisle High School is hosting its fourth annual Kicks for Cancer fund raiser on Saturday night, where the Patriots (3-0-1), ranked No. 6 in the Top 20, will host No. 2 Lincoln Sudbury (2-1-0) at 5 p.m. Acton-Boxborough (3-0-1) will also take on Wayland (4-0) in the battle of the unbeatens.
Admission to the event is $10 for adults and $5 for children and tickets will be sold at the gate. In addition to soccer, there will also be drawings for prizes that include Red Sox/Yankees tickets, Celtics seats, and tickets to the Boston College-Notre Dame football game.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to support cancer research at Dana-Farber. Kicks for Cancer has raised a total of $28,000 in three years, and last year's game raised almost $10,000.
Its always a really great event and CC does a great job of putting it together, said L-S coach Dan Hosford. I think CC is the best team in the state right now, so it should be a good game.
Several reporters and editors contribute updates, news and analysis to the High School Sports Blog.

Follow him on Twitter @GlobeHolmes.
- Craig Larson: A native of West Springfield (Leo Durocher anyone? Tim Daggett?) and Curry College graduate (a proud Colonel!), Larson is the sports editor for the Globe's regional sections: South, West and North, as well as a frequent contributor on the college beat.
