I’ve run a few posts this week about Sunday’s Heritage Day weekend events. But, of course, Monday is the main event.
New to Monday’s schedule this year is a Soccer Challenge, held by the Southborough chapter of The Knights of Columbus.
(On Columbus Day? How appropriate.)
KoC will host the free competition from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. Boys and Girls ages 9-14 are invited to shoot penalty shots on St. Mark’s field.
According to the national organization’s rules, each player is allowed 15 shots at the goal from the penalty line (12 yards from the goal).
The goal will be divided into a series of five scoring zones. The upper corners of the goal will be designated as 20 point zones. The lower corners will be designated as 10 point zones and the central region is a five point zone.
The highest scorers win, progressing to the district level. Potentially, they could move on to regional, state and international levels.
