The first season of Oakdale Soccer Club (OSC) came to a close this past weekend. On Saturday, Oct. 28 T.L. Davis Sports Complex played host to OSC’s season finale. Throughout the day, over 650 kids making up some three dozen teams invaded the sports complex and wrapped up their youth soccer season.
The season opened up on Saturday, Sept. 9 and ran through this past weekend giving the kids eight weeks of soccer fun. Not only were the fields occupied by soccer, the complex also hosted hayrides, corn hole, a disc jockey, cheerleaders, information booths, water bucket dunk booth and more harvest festival-type activities for families to do while they waited for their games to start.
Every player earned something for their hard work and participation this season. The top three teams earned trophies in their respective league. The others received medals and certificates.
“This was a lot of fun. I really enjoyed my team, they played hard each week,” Coach Luis Melchor Corona said. “This was my first year as a coach and OSC made me feel welcomed. This was great, organized and I know that I am looking forward to next season.”
Corona was head coach of the first place Co-Ed U14 Arsenal.
