BECKHAM HAS WINNING START

Paris Saint-Germain has defeated Olympique de Marseille in a Ligue 1 match played at Parc des Princes on Monday. PSG won the match by 2-0.

This was PSG’s 16th win in the ongoing Ligue 1. This win kept PSG at the top of the Ligue 1 points table. PSG currently has 54 points in 26 matches.

This was a pretty special match. First, it was the clash between two arch rivals and second, it was David Beckham’s first match for PSG.

JUNOR MAVS BEATEN :(

After a stinging 6-1 loss against Shorecrest, the Mavericks boys soccer team looked to rebound Tuesday against another incredibly tough team, the Shorewood Thunderbirds. Sadly, the T-Birds controlled the game the whole way and came away with a 3-0 win.

Despite being snakebitten in the first half, Shorewood was finally able to break the stalemate in the second half thanks to goals by Hayk Avanesayan, Eugene Holley and Daniel Yun. Sahil Khan also was a constant threat; though he didn’t score, he was a great set-up man.

JUNIOR MAVERICKS FACE TOUGH TASK

The Mavericks have probably one of the hardest schedules in the Wesco 3A league, having to play Shorecrest, Shorewood and Glacier Peak all in a row — all in the second half of the season.

MAVERICKS ON TOUR

In October 2007, the Mavericks travelled to Sri Lanka for a 10-day tour. Former player and founding member of the Mavericks, Andrew Mollitt, now works as a teacher in the capital city, Colombo, and plays for the local premier league side, Saunders SC.

The trip helped to improve the standard of playing equipment for Saunders SC youth team players through the generous donations of soccer playing equipment, such as portable goals, footwear, and jerseys.

A NEW LADY MAVERICK

MAVERICKS WALK FOR CHARITY

At the Plantation Sarcoma 5KWalk/Run in October the Archbishop McCarthy Lady Maverick Soccer Team earned the distinction of having recruited the greatest number of members, over the sixty walkers signed up with the Lady Mavericks Soccer team. “It was a beautiful site and you certainly could see us coming in a sea of Pink…!” laughed Lady Maverick Coach Mike Sica.
