Field hockey, men's soccer games to be webcast Saturday

LEWISTON, Maine -- The Bates College Department of Athletics will webcast 19 home athletic events this fall season, beginning with Saturday's season openers for the field hockey and men's soccer teams.

Bates is partnering with First Team Broadcasting and its webstream provider, Penn Atlantic, to provide audio webcasts for the first time of many Bobcat field hockey and men's and women's soccer games. All four Bates home football games will feature live audio and video streaming, as will several home volleyball contests. In most cases, Bates students will provide live game announcing.

On Saturday, webcast coverage starts as Bates field hockey hosts Connecticut College at 11 a.m., followed by the Bates men's soccer game against Connecticut College at 2 p.m.
