LIHUE — Ignacio Elzuardia had a hat trick, Bohdi Jones had two goals, and a Luka Perozo score made up the 6-0 win for Northshore FC over Rush at the North Vidinha fields on the opening weekend of the Kauai Soccer Association fall season Sunday.
The Northshore FC win was just one of many games that were spread across the fields.
“This is our second season operating under the U.S. Club Soccer and the Hawaii Soccer Federation,” said Kevin Devitt, KSA commissioner. “We have 30 teams —that’s a lot of kids — in the fall season, and we play on Sundays from 10 a.m.”
Games are free to the public.
“This year, KSA installed four goal sets that we presented to the county,” Devitt said. “These goals were secured through grants from the Hawaii Youth Soccer Association, Hawaii Soccer Federation, Hawaii Rush and KSA as part of developmental soccer. Because we presented them to the county, players from the American Youth Soccer Organization are able to use these new goals as well. If we have extra funds, we’d like to get two more sets.”
Devitt cut his conversation short, rushing off to coach another team as well as tend to loose ends with game officials on the field.
Several AYSO games are scheduled Saturdays in Lihue and at other fields around the island, with Region 940 (Lihue to Kekaha) games running at least until Oct. 28.
