Eighty soccer players recently took part in the second annual Friendship Soccer Tournament held on Saturday, November 20 at Fort Tilden. The tournament was designed for a specific goal in mind; to have the 8th grade boys and girls from 10 different Queens CYO parishes to become acquainted before entering high school. The players were divided up into 6 teams with a separate boys and girls division. Their opponents of 8 years are now their teammates. Shirts were given to all who participated. There were no medals at the end but what was awarded were new friendships. It was a great experience for the players but most of all a fun day of soccer.
