At the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, the men’s intramural soccer league is in full-fledged action with playoffs right around the corner. The teams compete at the Coleman Sports and Recreation Complex and play on the same field the UALR soccer team plays on. On Oct. 28, the International Club and Kappa Sigma faced off to see who would be on top after it all was said and done. When the final buzzer went off, the International Club were the crowned victors with a shutout win three to zero.

Throughout the game, the forwards for the International Club gave the Kappa Sigma goalie a run for his money. Right from the beginning, shots were fired from all angles. The goal attempts from the International Club players either missed the goal, went over the goal, or the Kappa Sigma goalie prevented his opponent from increasing their lead. After three goal attempts and one that was blocked, the International Club were on the scoreboard with a score of one, while Kappa Sigma remained scoreless.

All of the players on the field for Kappa Sigma hustled hard to keep up with their seemingly dominating opponent, but the ball seemed to end up going the other way when the International Club defenders got a hold of it and kicked it to one of the midfielders. The game was a physical one, with members of each team at some point throughout the game lying on the pitch. When the players had a moment to take a little breather, the audience could see their breath out because of how chilly it was on that October night.

At halftime, the International Club led the game by two while Kappa Sigma still had zero. During the second half of the game, Kappa Sigma really played to win and they always got close to a scoring opportunity. Some of the players were able to take the ball away from an International Club player and headed towards the goal. But with all of their effort, they weren’t able to stop the International Club from scoring another goal that increased their lead to three. Players for Kappa Sigma weren’t able to score a goal, so at the end of the game the International Club won three to zero.
