The Inaugural Beauvoir Soccer Match
Did you miss the Big Game? Something extraordinary just happened. Yes, Beauvoir began a tradition we hope lasts for years to come.
On Saturday, May 9th, with the rain holding off, we held the first-ever Beauvoir Parents Soccer Match.
It was high-stakes, high-quality soccer, and we will never view the parent players in quite the same way again! Sweat, tears and some great goals were all on display.
Soccer Committee Chairs Joe Weber, Kelvin Coleman and Kweku Ankoma-Sey divided the players into two teams: Pre-K, K & 1st Grade Versus 2nd - 3rd Grade. The teams huddled, discussed tactics and swaggered onto the field to take-up their positions.
Nancy Cordes (CBS Reporter and Beauvoir Mom) provided hilarious game commentary. Parents and partners on the sideline laughed nervously as the match began....and then something happened. Individuals became a seamless team and unexpected talent was on display.
The game remained gentlemanly, but for ninety minutes the tackles revealed a certain ruthlessness. Every player gave it their all and not a single player left the field with an ounce of energy remaining. In the fourth quarter, dozens of kids joined their parents on the field to finish off the game in style.
The Result? Pre-K-1st Grades: 3; 2-3rd Grades 0.
Thank you so much to all 26 players - you did an incredible job. A special thank you to Beauvoir parents Joe, Kelvin & Kweku for putting the event together.
If you missed it this year, there is always 2016.
Let the tradition begin!
