On a beautiful Sunday afternoon, Woodson HS's west turf was buzzing with action as eight of BRYC's ODSL squads hosted opponents from around Northern Virginia, including BRYC's U11 Boys "Victory", coached by Ibrahim Alothain and Joshua Spiro, who took on the Cougar Youth Club's (a recently formed club in Annandale) "Olympiacos" and BRYC's U11Girls "Lightning", coached by Andrew Lowden, who took on Arlington "Gold". Playing simultaneously on two "small sided" fields meant this reporter/photographer had to scramble between fields to take it all in, but was able to capture much of the action in two photo galleries now posted on BRYC's Facebook page, "BRYC Soccer".
At the end of the day, Victory was indeed victorious, by a final score of 3-0. In its game, Lightning struck for five goals while also holding the opponent scoreless. Congratulations to the coaches, the goalies, the stong defenders and the potent mids and forwards on these two great games.
