Adult soccer league gets shaky start

ANNA MARIA – After the clearing of the rain clouds, the area adults played five soccer games in The Center’s co-ed league. With roughly 100 men and women playing this season, the games are compressed and the schedule was tightened to accommodate 10 teams.

After three weeks of play, there is no clear leader this season. Pool America currently leads the pack with two wins and a tie, earning the team seven points.

In the third game of the night, Pool America beat Progressive Cabinetry by a single goal.

With 2-1-0 records and six points, three teams are currently tied for second near the season’s halfway mark. Progressive Cabinetry, Salty Printing and Sato Real Estate each have two wins and a single loss.

Sato Real Estate and Salty Printing went head-to-head last week with the Salty squad coming out ahead by two goals.

Teams Solid Rock Construction and Diamond Turf are searching for their first wins. The Solid Rock team has come close with two ties, earning three points in the season.

Solid Rock Construction took a one-point loss against team Moss Builders. The victory put the team just below the Ross Built Custom Homes team.

Winning one game each, Ross Built, Moss Builders, Beach House Waterfront Restaurant, and Language Services Associates look to better their position in the ranks. Ross Built is the head of the bunch with two ties. Beach House and Language Services each suffered two losses early in the schedule.

In the first game of the night, team Ross Built showed their dominance against the Beach House team, ending the first half of the game 4-0. The Beach House defense changed course during the second half of play, only allowing one additional Ross Built goal.

Beach House came back scoring two goals from James Rodriguez and Matt Staggs. Defensively, Aaron Frech and Danny Free protected the Beach House goal with six and four saves, respectively.

Max Gazzo played at the goal for Ross Built to lead the team’s defense, with scoring by Eliza Faillace, Helio Gomez and Dean Hinterstoisser. Complimenting Faillace’s solo goal, her teammates each got past the Beach House goalie twice.

Playing their fourth game this week, each of them seeks wins to secure their positions going into playoffs.
