Intramural soccer offers a fun competitive game where students can either participate in or enjoy the sport from the sidelines.

One of the newest additions to the club scene here at Christian Brothers is intramural soccer. CB’s Intramural soccer takes place inside the field house every Thursday during all school lunch.  This indoor environment gives the sport of soccer a much faster pace, due to the smaller area and almost non-stop action of the game.

There is a total of ten students per team, and there are five players from each team are on the field at all times.

Elmer Lizarde (’16) loves the relaxed and fun pace of intramural soccer.

“You get to play the sport and participate with your friends also it’s not super intense and there’s not all that pressure, ” says Elmer Lizarde, “Plus you get to enjoy the competition rather then get destroyed by it.”

The Talon attended one of these soccer games and saw there was a large amount of competition between each team and each team strives for the goal of winning champs over all other competitors.

“There’s a lot of people doing [intramural soccer],” Brenna Gallagher (’16) states. “It got popular really quickly.”

Since Intramural soccer is a new club, there are plenty of opportunities for it to be apart of the CB community for years to come. Leandro Johnson (’16) thinks IM soccer will stay around for a long time.

“It will definitely be one of the clubs that stays because not only is soccer the most watched sport in the world but it’s very well known in the CB community.”

Often times a new club has some hurdles to cross, which can be very stressful to try and figure these issues out.

“I wish there was more games going at the same time that way more teams would have the opportunity to play and so there wouldn’t be so many bye weeks,” Elmer says.

As time goes on, Intramural Soccer will move past these issues and become one of the most popular clubs at CB.

Many people share the love for soccer, whether taking part in the sport or cheering on the sideline. The Intramural soccer team is a wonderful edition to the CB community and be sure to go check out a couple games every Thursday.
