The Intramural Co-Rec Soccer season opened up with eight games on Sunday, Sept 7. There were several entertaining games but the last game of the night between the teams, The Pain Train and The Clown Babies, provided the most excitement and drama.
Ethan Lockley was stellar in goal throughout the game for The Pain Train, while goals by teammates Brian Parsons and Joshua Estrada staked them to a 2-0 lead late in the second half.
With time winding down in the second-half, a great pass gave The Clown Babies Caroline Senecal just enough room to sneak the ball past Lockley for a 2-point goal and the tie.
Shortly after the ensuing kick-off the whistle sounded to end the game, with The Clown Babies stealing a 2-2 tie to open the season. Daniel Fleischman also recorded 4 saves for The Clown Babies.
Conner Lane came out of the weekend as the leading scorer. Lane scored 3 goals to lead Tricks for Chicks to a 6-0 win over Shake Your Booty. Lane was assisted by Ross Anderson and Nathan Sanderson on 2 of his 3 goals. Lane will look to continue his hot scoring streak against Smoke City F.C on Sept. 14 at 6:00 p.m.
The Bomb Squad led all teams in scoring as they took home a 10-2 win against Team Res Life. The Bomb Squad had a balanced scoring attack with John Ramsay, Joshua Dallesander, Andrew Howard, Jamie Monahan, Mackenzie Morse and Monica Waskiewicz all scoring goals. Teal Harrison-Hertz, Brad Holler and Chris Sinvil also contributed to the scoring, each having one assist.
Kayla Magan played for Team Res Life, making 9 saves on a day where she faced steady-pressure from The Bomb Squad’s potent offense. Alexandra Pacifico scored the lone goal for Team Res Life.
Travis O’Brien turned in the top-goalkeeping performance, tying Kayla Magan with 9 saves as his Ireland F.C. team lost to the Benchwarmers 7-2. Ireland FC’s goals were scored by Antonio Dizenzo and Jack Anderson.
Tyler Ranfos and Elizabeth Rizzitano led the Benchwarmers with 2 goals each. Colby Easter, Todd Patnaude and Andrew Slade also added goals for the Benchwarmers, while Ryan Hagerty was solid in goal, making 6 saves.
Parliament is the only returning team who made it the farthest in last year’s playoffs, losing 27-20 in the semi-finals to eventual champions Morgan Freeman.
