News and Announcements
There are nineteen Velezians on college rosters for the academic year 2010-2011. There are four more high school seniors who will join college rosters for the 2011-2012 academic year. There is also one last long time Velezian playing Lacrosse at Duke. Review the 2010 college season by visiting our blog.
Boys also had a tie against Concorde Fire Elite from Atlanta, GA (1-1) but honestly, that game should have been won by the boys. They also had another win against Solar SC Academy after YMS had beaten them the day prior.
The lone club game came against a really good Beachside team which the boys won 2-1. That game could have gone either way.
Coach's reflection after this event is that USSF DA's are focusing too much on brutus violent soccer instead of creating magicians. Concorde Fire Elite is loaded with huge athletic players all bound for the ACC. Our little Ivy and D3 defenders caught them offsides about 15 times and completely negated their size and speed. Lonestar was far too dirty and violent and reflective of why so many Americans get red carded so quickly in international play. However, they played some very attractive soccer when they were not fouling. Solar played pretty attractive non violent soccer but were outwitted by both Vélez and YMS. But the personal development was obvious.
