On November 3, the Randall's Island soccer season concluded with a game in Central Park vs. St. Bernard's involving a select group of Browning fifth and sixth grade boys who show real promise in soccer. St. Bernard's dominated play throughout the game, with a final score of 8-1. The Browning boys exhibited good citizenship on and off the field, day in and day out. The young Panthers fared much better in a game held last week vs. St. David's, where Browning was victorious by a score of 2-0.
However, the bulk of the season is not reflected in these two very special games played by 20 Browning boys, but rather in an intramural tournament involving all 57 of the boys.
Coach West, Coach Wolf and I felt that this was one of our best seasons ever, with a high level of play on the field and with an ever-increasing level of sportsmanship and positive teamwork amongst the boys. Our focus was to help each boy grow stronger and more confident in his soccer abilities and to help them realize that they each have a valuable contribution to make to the team.
Please congratulate these young men on a job well done.
--Coach Marcia Wallace
