Spirit week: Soccer kicks off the season at AMICC

Soccer season got off to a spirited start with three days of exhibition games where teams played a couple of 20-minute mini-games as a dress rehearsal for the real deal, which got started Sept. 12. In addition to the exhibition games, the Center also hosted its annual kick-off-the-season banquet Sept. 6, and picture day Sept. 10.

The winners of "Spirit Week," a competition for fans to display their best enthusiastic support, were Longboat Observer in Division I, West Coast Surf Shop in Division II, Air & Energy in Division III and Rotten Ralph's Waterfront Restaurant in the instructional league. Each of these teams' players won free ice cream from Dip's Ice Cream and will get their photo prominently displayed in the Center for all to see.

As for the exhibition games, aside from Division III (ages 8-9), where Air & Energy pretty much had its way with every team they played, the teams appear to be fairly even and should make for an exciting season of soccer. West Coast Air Conditioning won one game and tied another for the top mark in Division I (ages 12-14), while Harry's Continental Kitchens and Island Real Estate had the best records in exhibition games in Division II (ages 10-11). Air & Energy has Joel and Adam Hart in addition to Trevor Albers, giving them a three-pronged scoring attack that will carry them to the Division III title. Danziger Allergy & Sinus and Mike Norman Realty both have strong defenses, but will have to find consistent scoring threats to challenge them for the title.

Good luck to all of the teams as they embark on the 2005 soccer season.

Blake Wilson and Celia Ware each scored a goal to lead Longboat Observer past Mr. Bones by a 2-1 score on Sept. 10. Cory Wash notched one goal to lead Mr. Bones in the loss.
