The Soccer Association of Homer was again represented by the Homer Vortex, a team of boys under the age of 15, and the Homer Hawks, a coed team of players under the age of 12, in their final matches of the season against Kenai on July 23.
Playing coed against a Kenai team of girls under the age of 15, the Homer Vortex had its most exciting game yet. The final score was Vortex 5 and Kenai 2.
It’s been a busy few weeks for the Soccer Association of Homer competitive teams.
When Homer’s varsity soccer teams opened their seasons Friday on Colony High’s shiny new artificial turf playing field, it was the first time all year that Homer players had gotten outdoors to play. Homer’s grass field was still sodden and untouchable.
For their opponents from Houston High, who have access to state-funded turf and indoor fields in the Valley and Anchorage, it was already the fourth game of the year.
