The 1st week of Watermelon Cup 2010 opened tonight with some intriguing results at Long Lots.
Three teams — Brazil, Somalia and USA — went 2-0. The other 3 squads were winless.
Four matches were decided by 4-3 scores — including all 3 of the 7:15 p.m. games.
Best match of the day: Brazil’s 4-3 squeaker over Argentina. Brazil is made up of many former Staples and college stars, while Argentina fielded only 1 current varsity player (keeper Connor Walsh). Experience and pace — along with some nice strikes — won out over intense, often intelligent play.
