  • Blue overtakes red 6-1
    Thursday, August 27, 2015 10:54 PM

    Blue took on red Thursday in the first soccer county match-up of the season. The stakes and energy were high as the rivals faced off. Spatterings of commands flew through the air, “Move!” “Middle!”, “Behind you!” The boys dove into an intense match with C’ville coming out on top 6-1.

    The Athenians took off from the get go. Wilfredo Cifuentes rocked one in early to lay the base for the game. Kalidou Diaw had a few nice runs on goal with a bicycle kick mixed in until he followed up with a second goal in the last few minutes of the first half.

    C’ville switched to more of a defensive game in the last eight minutes but Diaw turned it around with his goal at 3:30.

    Hello Sports Fans.

    I would like to tell you that like our three MCschools, C’ville, North and South, I started out sizzling hot – nailed all three games and then followed up with perfection in the SAC.

    Actually, I’d love to tell you that.


    Unlike the boys in blue, orange and red, I stunk. For the week, I went with a mediocre, paltry, lowly, second-rate, run-of-the-mill, measly and miserable 4-4 record. I hate to say it, but there are coins out there that do better just getting flipped.

    And South? Oh boy, South! Did I really say they were going to lose by a hundred or something? I did indeed. You read it here that they were going to get whooped up on. Boy did those Mounties make me eat my words.

    You know what? Good for them. It’s a great thing to have a little attitude, a bit of a swagger. Show me now that you can do it two weeks in a row.

    And speaking of two weeks in a row. I read where Lori Poteet, photographer extraordinaire, said that all three schools winning their opener had not happened since 1994. Wonder when the last time all three started out 2-0?
