Alli Lipsher is a retired professional soccer player who starred collegiately at Duke University in the ACC. Matt Privratsky kicked on the football team at the University of Minnesota, Morris when he wasn't good enough to be on the men's soccer team in just its second year of existence.
This weekend, they came together with one common goal: raise money for Like a Girl and Monarch FC, two organizations that provide access to soccer for girls of color across the Twin Cities. In the end, Alli made 4 of 5 field goals and Matt made 3 of 5 (Matt is writing this so he gets to remind you that the wind made the football fall mid-swing on the third one).
