The Rochester Rhinos face the Dayton Dutch Lions for the fourth and final time in Sahlen’s Stadium on Saturday, July 7 at 7:05 PM. The Rhinos took the first game of the series 1-0 off of a JC Banks goal on April 28th, but have tied the Dutch Lions in the previous two games. The Rhinos victory against the Antigua Barracuda on Wednesday, July 4th gives the Rhinos two wins in their last three matches after ending a seven game winless streak two weeks ago in Richmond.
On Saturday night the Rochester Rhinos and Urology Associates will be presenting Men’s Health Night in Sahlen’s Stadium. The Rochester Rhinos will be wearing special blue jerseys to raise awareness of prostate cancer. The Rhinos will be auctioning off their autographed game worn jerseys using a special online auction with the proceeds going to the Lipson Cancer Center at Rochester General Hospital and ZERO: The Project to End Prostate Cancer. Cancer survivors will be participating in the ceremonial first kick. Camp Good Days will be on the field to form the pre-game youth tunnel. Free prostate cancer screenings will be provided on the concourse during the event.
“Raising awareness in the community regarding threats to our collective well-being is noble and important work.” Rhinos head coach Jesse Myers said. “We’re proud to be working with Urology Associates, Zero Project, the Lipson Cancer Center at Rochester General Hospital, and Camp Good Days this season. We hope that our efforts on Saturday night can help out in some small way, and we hope that our fans recognize and support a worthy cause like this one.”

Lap tops will be available on the concourse for Rhinos fans to place their bids. Go Buy Rochester will be in attendance to assist people in making their bids.
