The Staples-Central boys soccer rivalry dates back many years. On Wednesday, May 22, it continues — this time with alumni from both teams.
The Kennedy Stadium evening match features former players from both squads. Players pay $20 to participate. All proceeds benefit Bridgeport soccer programs.
Dave Sharpe ’07 has put together a solid team, but a few spots remain open. Anyone interested in playing (all ages welcome) should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Central High head coach Jay Silverman came up with the idea. Staples head coach Dan Woog eagerly embraced it.
“Our teams have always battled hard — and we’ve always had great respect for Central,” Woog said. “It will be fun to renew this rivalry — and for a fantastic cause.”
Spectators are welcome!
