Indian Ridge Park, TRUMBULL—Well, it’s time to head to the voting booths Tuesday and I have a non-partisan, apolitical message that I believe we can all get behind: Vote for moms.
As the New Canaan Football Club U12 Boys Red team winds down another great season, I dedicate this article to all the moms out there scheduling, driving, car-pooling, organizing, and preparing these minnows for soccer games all over Fairfield County, the State of Connecticut and our wonderful nation. Without any fanfare and little recognition, these unsung heroes toil week in and week out to put our kids in a position to grow, learn about teamwork, deal with adversity and to succeed out on the playing field. And this past Sunday, that’s what the boys from New Canaan did—with their playoff hopes on the line.
First, a quick back story.
The NCFC U12 Boys Red side is a small team both in stature and numbers. On a given week, we just have enough players to field two subs. This week, it looked like we might have to play shorthanded given scheduling conflicts.
