It was a great night for soccer out at STAR. After escaping a rain delay, the night was cool and breezy, a welcome break from the heat we’ve had all season. Our teams took the fields for the final week of the regular season after a two weeks hiatus due to weather. Some teams were a bit rusty, but other teams like Running Turtles who won their game against Muffin Stuffers, looked like they had been recharged and their offense polished.
Texas Tornados and Barcelona won their games by four and five points, respectively, and will go into playoffs as two of the top teams to beat. Teams that play them will have to focus on slowing down their fast paced games and really defending their female strikers.
There are several teams on the bubble for playoffs and it will be a close call as to who makes the cut. Don’t miss out next week as our teams duke it out to see who will win the title of summer SSC soccer champs and hoist that banner with pride! Thanks to all of our awesome teams and best of luck to our playoff contenders!
