April 6 -- When BRYC’s younger players, at the U5 and U6 levels, get together on Saturdays the action is fast and furious. Playing two simultaneous 3v3 games on small fields with even smaller goals, the boys and girls move up and down the field in a flash. When a ball is kicked out of bounds another one is put in play almost immediately...with no waiting for a throw-in or a goal kick. When a goal is scored there’s no waiting to get the ball out of the goal for another kickoff. Another ball is immediately put in play. Goals often come in bunches because it’s fairly rare for a player to think about defense! But no one keeps score!
So it was when Rik Ebbesen’s Canterbury Woods based "Strikers" took on Danny Heltzel’s Wakefield Forest based "Skylanders" on Saturday afternoon at Woodson High School in the first game of the spring season for them and over 100 BRYC teams from U5 to U19. It looked like a lot of energy had been saved up over the winter months and the boys were ready to let it all out.
