Muddy fields did not deter 10 adult soccer teams from playing their first round of games at Stables Park in Pawleys Island on July 26.
The Georgetown Parks and Recreation Department can certainly list their newly formed adult soccer league at the top of their accomplishments.
More than 120 players participated in the first round of regular match play on July 26.
“This is a great turnout,” league coordinator Justin Blomdahl said. “There will definitely be some great soccer played here ... for sure.”
The rain that pounded the area the night before did not cause a second of hesitation in any of the players’ minds.
“The muddier the better,” exclaimed a player from Team Georgetown.
Team Georgetown, comprised of players 16 and older from Georgetown High School, was not victorious on July 26, but they played with determination, putting their hearts and souls into the game.
The teams are comprised of both men and women over the age of 16. They will play each Saturday through the fall at Stables Park.
“We have players from just about everywhere,” Blomdahl said. “We have people from Hemingway to Myrtle Beach, and everywhere in between. It’s great.”
Blomdahl said the following teams reported wins on Saturday: PIT, Palace Theatre, Habaneros, Myrtle Beach, and Team Blue Surfside.
