On August 7th, a gorgeous Friday, NEIT’s Student Activities Office held its first Summer Quarter soccer tournament. The Blue and Orange teams played two 25-minute halves, with the Blue team winning 5 to 4.
Ezekiel Shiell scored two early goals that gave the Blue team an early advantage. Ezekiel’s sharp play along with teammate Tayo Okeowo’s passing precision, worked to the team’s advantage. After being held scoreless in the first half, Kyle McNeil of the Orange team rallied his teammates with assisting and scoring to help tie the game. There were many off side calls handed down to both teams, but mid-quarter gave the Blue team the advantage as Sterling Davis scored an unassisted goal. All was not lost for the Orange team who held the ball for the majority of the second half; the team had two late goals by Regino Smith and Reginald Smith. Rico Weldon, one of the top players of the game, played a very good and consistent. He started as goalie in the first half with multiple saves, and in the second half, he scored the final two goals for the Blue team. The match was very intense, and both teams played well, but defensively the Blue team held up during the final two minutes to win the game.
