The Thunderbird soccer team recently began its season with the Scottsdale League, playing other clubs throughout the valley. Games are played off-campus every Sunday in North/South Scottsdale. The roster is filled with several current students and alumni located throughout the valley. The season started with a rough patch as the record moves to 1-2-1. Updates of the team’s standings are available at SUASL.com.
Notable plays from this past weekend included a header by Andres Osorio to save a certain goal, a one on one diving save by goal keeper Kyle Thompson, and an assist by alumni Mike Caplice to Jason Fritz to net the game’s first goal, leading to a 1-1 tie vs. Little Feet.
The soccer team looks to turn the season around next week as they face Ellani FC who currently stands in second place in the division. Come out and root on your fellow classmates as they seek to win the league championship.
