AMICC indoor soccer 5-7-year-old play.
The Sun sports game of the week features the season-opening indoor soccer contest between the Bowes Imaging Center team and the Miller Electric team. The 5 to 7 year old game was a fun and energetic way to begin the new season.
Roll out a ball, which looks like a giant tennis ball, and watch the future of Island soccer take shape. These little players follow the ball like a swarm of bees and get plenty of touches on the ball. Indoor is a fast paced sport, even at this age, which is great for teaching and learning.
Two minutes into the game, Payton Harlan opened up the 2013 season with the first goal when he dribbled in front of the net and slipped it by the goalie for the Bowes Imaging Center 1-0 lead.
At the five minute mark, Max Higgins tied the game for the Miller Electric team with a hard shot through the crowd of players, score 1-1.
For the next 10 minutes the game remained tied as the defense for both teams shinned. For the Bowes Imaging team, it was great all-around play by Elek Brisson and Mikey Bowes that shinned. For the Miller Electric team, it was great all-around play by Jonathan Kinkle and Evan Talucci that shined.
With five minutes left in the half, Max Higgins struck again for Miller Electric. During a big scrum of players in front of the net, Higgins found himself with the ball and gave it a big boot into the back of the net, score 2-1.
Two minutes later, Kirin Malisoff made a great pass to open teammate Grayson Mitchell in front of the net. Mitchell finished it with a shot to the corner of the net and gave Miller Electric the 3-1 lead at the half.
The second half was fun and enjoyable to watch as both teams went back and forth without any scoring. It wasn’t until there was less than 10 minutes left when Jordan Roberts broke the scoring drought for Miller Electric. Roberts was in the right place at the right time as the ball bounced off the back wall and rebounded in front of the net. Roberts hustled to the ball and blasted it into the goal for the score. Score 4-1.
Payton Harlan scored his second goal for Bowes Imaging Center with eight minutes left in the game. Harlan went coast to coast and dribbled the ball the length of the court. He used the wall to pass it to himself once and went one-on-one with the goalkeeper and shot it lower left for the goal. Score 2-4.
Fatigue set in for the little tikes and the rest of the game remained the same score. Miller Electric picked up the season opening first win with a final score of 4 to 2.
