Watermelon Cup Opens With Close Games

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.
