Prior to its match against Loyola-Chicago on Sunday afternoon, the ISU soccer team honored the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and those who’ve lost their lives in the military.

Patriotic music rang out during the pregame warm-ups and a table stacked with T-shirts adorned with “Thank You” and “God Bless” written on them sat inside the ISU Soccer Complex prior to kickoff. Fans could decorate the shirts with messages to be sent to local police, fire and EMS stations.

A member of the Ames Police Department, Ames Fire Department and two emergency medical workers were honored as the honorary captains and members of the police department and fire department presented the colors for the game as well.
