Monday, February 20, 2012 the Don Bosco Center held a Presidents’ Day soccer tournament. The tournament was held at the Don Bosco Center on the new turf field that was just completed this past fall.
There were six teams with six players each in the tournament. Jessica Morales, director of youth ministry at Sacred Heart Parish in Manassas, brought three players and the rest of the players were from the Don Bosco Center.
It was a great day filled with soccer, fun, and food. Ian Nelson was the expert hot dog cook and Fr. Ramon Dominguez, YA was our professional chicken nugget chef.
Tiffany Lambert and Jonathan Mundell helped referee and Jessica Morales was keeping track of the points for the bracket. We did a bracket in which each team played at least twice.
When teams were off the field they watched the game on the field or went in the Center to get some hot dogs, chicken nuggets, pasta, chips and salsa, cheese and crackers, salad, etc.
The last two games were 3rd place vs. 4th place and then 1st place vs. 2nd place. The winning team (David, Jesus, Charlie, Adrian, Santos, and Carlos) took pictures with the “El Presidente Cup” trophy. Then each of the players on the winning team got a brand new soccer ball. All in all it was a great fun-filled day at the Don Bosco Center.
