Emerson Kicks Season Off With 8–1 Win Over Spiritus Sanctus Plymouth
The Emerson Middle School soccer team got off to a fast start, with Gabe Kellman scoring 12 seconds after the opening whistle, and the team scoring 5 goals in the first 10 minutes of their opener at Spiritus Sanctus Plymouth. It took the rest of the first half to get the kids on the same page of ‘no more scoring allowed,’ and by that time the Eagle lead was 8-0. Spiritus Sanctus managed a goal in the second half, but other than that Emerson was able to play a pretty good game of ‘possession’, working on moving the ball and getting everyone involved, which should come into play when the competition gets tougher this season.
