Penn State Soccer Beaten, 100-11
Last Friday night, the women’s soccer team celebrated senior night—and its 14th straight Big Ten title—with a 2-0 victory over Purdue. That was a lot of fun, but it wasn’t the only highlight of the night: At halftime, 11 members of the men’s soccer team took the field for a game against kids from Centre Soccer Association, the local youth league. (I coached my son’s U7 team in CSA this fall.) A ranked Division I college team playing against a bunch of kids aged 7-13—how could this be fair?
Well, the kids had a numbers advantage. 100 to 11, to be exact.
Someone finally posted video last night, and you can get a sense of how much fun this was to watch. The CSA kids won 3-2, thanks in part to the opening goal scored by Luke Fey, son of Brad ’95 and Denise ’95 Fey. Hoping this becomes an annual affair at Penn State men’s and women’s soccer games. It was a blast.
