Tuesday, January 8, 2013

TE Night @ Northwestern Recap
"On behalf of Team Evanston, I'd like to thank the Team Evanston community (players, families, coaches) for attending and supporting the club's third annual ‘Team Evanston Night @ Northwestern’ on Friday, September 14. In addition to being a beautiful night along the lakefront, it was great to see the massive turnout that Team Evanston had in supporting this great event and Northwestern's soccer program."
Coaches Game/Ice Cream Social Recap
On September 5th, Team Evanston held its annual ice cream social and coach’s game. With the kids surrounding the field the coaches broke up into two evenly matched teams and began play. The game started off with a bang when the gray team took the ball down the field and took a great shot on goal, but the club's goalkeeper coach Jeff Richey made an outstanding save worthy of a Sportscenter highlight. The gray team continued dominating the game and soon took a 1-0 lead. However, the lead did not last long because the black team began pressuring and got a quick turnaround goal. Every goal that was scored was followed by a team/player wide celebration with a dog pile on the goal scoring coach. The game stayed back and forth until the last 30 minutes when the gray team started pulling away due to their supreme fitness conditioning and tactical organization. While the black team was trying to reorganize and find that much needed spark up front, the gray team stayed focused and passed the ball around in a way which would have made Pep Guardiola jealous. In the end, the gray team took home a 5-3 win over the black team. When reached for comment after the game, an unnamed member of the black team simply said, "It's all Dule's and Francisco's fault. I don't know why they put them on our team."
Thanks to all parents and players who came to watch the game. We are all looking forward to an exciting season!

Jan. 25, 2010 -- Injuries in youth soccer are common, and rates are higher among players younger than age 15, a new analysis shows.
Reporting in the February issue of Pediatrics, researchers say that soccer -- one of the most popular team sports in the world -- is almost synonymous with injuries. Young female players tend to suffer more knee-related injuries, while male soccer players are more likely to report more ankle injuries, the researchers write.
