Estamos Usando La Red: New Student Soccer Blog

If you’re already on campus, then you’ll understand how writing this from my not-so-air-conditioned  room affected the photo choice. (If not…check out this wacky soccer goof!) Anyway, this post was prompted by Gabe Lezra ’11 sending us news of su nueva blog de fútbol con Josh Zeitlin ’11 de Princeton, Managing Madrid. Taken from the blog’s sidebar description:

A couple of armchair managers observe, argue, report and analyze the daily goings on of the greatest organization in the history of professional sports, Real Madrid Club de Futbol.

The blog is already picking up steam; entries already posted include analysis of Real Madrid CF’s offseason acquisitions, tactics, news updates, and even a podcast! If you’re interested, check out the blog at the link below.

Cards Win All Home Games

So while many at Wes (myself included) are not avid followers of Wesleyan sports, congrats to all the Wesleyan teams today who trounced Bates.  Field hockey won 3-1, football 28-20, women’s soccer 2-1, and men’s soccer 2-0 – continuing their undefeated season which has placed them as New England’s top team (their second best run so far in Wesleyan history).  Go Wes!

Vicious Circles, the women’s ultimate team, also won the Smith tournament this weekend, beating Smith, RPI, Mt. Holyoke,  Fordham and Smith Alumni. Go Wes again!

That’s "fútbol" to you

Kudos to the women’s soccer team, which clinched a spot in the NESCAC Championship for the first time in team history today. Wes will play at either Amherst or Williams in the first round on Nov. 2.

Wes has already reached its highest win total since 1997, when it went 6-7-1 for the second straight year (Wes is 6-5-1 in ’08), and with games left at Eastern Conn. (Tuesday) and against Conn. Coll. (Halloween), the team looks like a solid bet to finish with a winning record for the first time since 1994 (12-4-1). Go Wes.

Meet up at the track behind Freeman Athletic Center. All skill levels are welcome. There are usually three practices a week, and games against other colleges take place most weekends.

Date: Sunday, Aug. 31
Time: 4:00 PM
