Yes, we did track work and hills at Stride and Crusade!

Hills came in the form of running up and down the seats at the Swamp and track… well, we ran around the swamp a couple of times.  The rest of the time was consumed with In the Dark, In your Face, Run you Down, To the Ground, All Around SOCCER!

15 Pax from across @f3lexsc to be exact played on the field that just two days before saw the #2 River Bluff Gators knock off Socastee 4-1 in the SC 4A Lower State Quarter Finals to earn a spot in the State Semifinals against Wando tomorrow.  GO GATORS!

Conditions : 60s and Muggy!  Summer is here!

Thang: After Yellow cake and pepto finally decided who was leading this event, the Disclaimer was declared.  BOM

Mozy to the swamp and take two laps around the field. Huddle around Rangers sack of balls and count off to divide the pax into teams.  One team plays with yellow shirts while the other dons red ones.  Set up at 50 and play!

Rules: No hand ball… field boundaries are the black side lines and the white goal lines.  When a goal is scored, offense runs 50 yards while defense runs 150 yards. Play until Yellow cake says time.


It was a pleasure to be able to get so many pax out for the second F3 soccer match!  A true professional, Tumbler, joined us as well to show us some fancy footwork and a big presence on the field.  The reds defeated the yellows 5-3.  Reds were also aided by a misguided goal by YHC.  I believe we all got better at running around a field, chasing a ball in the dark and playing like 6 year olds!
