Soccer: Rec tournament recruiting teams

Local organizers will host the Full-Side-Rec Soccer Tournament at Beaver Creek Park next month.

On the heels of the FIFA World Cup Soccer excitement, local organizers will host the Full-Side-Rec Soccer Tournament at Beaver Creek Park next month.

The open competition is seeking teams of up to 18 players to compete in the two-day event going Sept. 27-28. Tournament coordinator John Foglia is hoping to get eight teams signed up for the event but can accommodate more.

“We’ll just play at Mazzochi in Fruitvale to make sure we fit everything in.”

The teams will be divided into two pools of four teams in a round-robin format, with games comprised of two 30-minute halves.

Cash prizes of $600, $350, and $150 go to the top-three teams.  Entry fee is $350. For more information call Foglia at 368-3003 or Ron Joseph at 368-8620 or e-mail
