UCF Women's Soccer Raises Over $800 for the McMahon Family
Knights had a successful weekend both on and off the pitch.
ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com)
- Wearing red wristbands last weekend to honor Freedom High School and FC
America soccer player Breanna McMahon, the UCF women's soccer team raised
over $800 to support the McMahon family during its two home victories. The
Knights would like to thank all of the fans that came out to the UCF Soccer
Complex to support Breanna.
"We are happy to be able to contribute to Breanna's recovery fund," said
UCF head coach
Amanda Cromwell. "It makes us proud that our fans came out not only to
watch us play but help a local player that needs our help. The soccer
community is very close and we are thrilled to help in any way we can,
whether it is with monetary donations, the signed jersey or all of the
encouragement we can provide. We hope Breanna will keep healing and keep
fighting through the recovery process."
A goalkeeper for FHS, McMahon had to have her left leg amputated due to a
serious accident during a fundraiser for her club team FC America. Several
of her teammates were on hand for the Oct. 9 UCF win over UTEP to help
collect donations for a trust account that has been set up at Old Southern

After improving their record to 10-3-1 on the season by defeating UTEP
and Colorado College and jumping to No. 14 in the Soccer America rankings
(two other polls will be released Tuesday), the Knights will hit the road to
face Rice Friday and Houston Sunday.
