Each of the Winners submitted an essay on how soccer (playing, coaching, or refereeing) has prepared them with skills for their career after graduation. Congratulations to the following $500 scholarship winners:
We are sorry to announce there will be NO Fall Soccer this year. There were not enough coaches for the teams so we had to cancel the season this year.
Below is a list of tryout dates for the West Seneca Travel Teams. This page will be updated as we receive them.
West Seneca Strikers
West Seneca Elite
August 16th 6:30pm- 8pm
August 21st 6:30pm- 8pm
West Seneca Soccer Complex
Team 4 Maroon 4 vs Team 3 Kelly 3
Kelly got a quick lead 0 to 3. After changing goalies and a halftime adjustment focused on positioning, pkaying outside and goalie handling Maroon rallied to 4 unanswered goals to win 4 to 3.
Both teams playing better in space could have turned this game either direction and will continue to reinforce playing proper sides, angles of the field as well as finding open space.
A marked improvement all around from game 1
Team 4 Maroon 0 vs Team 8 Silver 5
Good game by Silver. Getting ahead 4 goals in first half. Maroon managed to play better defensively, but getting my new players to understand positioning. Better second half by Maroon, but silver allowed very few shots and the kids should be proud.
We would all do well to remind our goalies not to set ball on ground after a save. Only on goal kicks.
We will see Silver 4 times so hopefully I fix things before then
Team 4 Royal 5 vs Team 2 Kelly 2
Coming off weeks of preseason preparation Kelly and Royal both came well prepared for tonight’s season opener.
Royals’s early offensive barage yielded no results and Kelly took the lead a little more than halfway through the first half bringing the rowdy crowd to their side.
It was only after the referees took control of the unruly crowd, Royal bounced back establishing a lead that it never lost although the crowd never left Kelly’s side

The information will be covered up for the “blind judging”. You will be assigned a number to your essay so we know who it belongs to but not the judges.
