Eclipse Hosts and Plays Team From England

In mid-August, Eclipse families hosted 30 soccer players from the Kimbolton School in England. During their stay, Eclipse players had the opportunity to interact with the boys from England socially and eventually out on the field! In the showcase exhibition match, the Eclipse U18 Boys took on Kimbolton’s Team A (the equivalent of our varsity teams). The game was well-played by both teams with good possession soccer all around. Eclipse was able to score the first two goals of the match and held on for a 2-1 win. In the later match, Kimbolton’s Team B took on a mix of Eclipse players from our U14-U16 teams. It was an extremely even battle and ended with Kimbolton scoring the deciding goal with only a few minutes left to earn a 1-0 victory. Thanks to everyone who was involved in this great experience and to Kimbolton for being courteous guests!
