Finally, it appears the Cook Inlet Conference soccer teams are headed for greener pastures — their own.
After weeks of wrangling and shoveling, the games which have been snowed out are poised to begin. And with the season slipping away, players are happy there is green under all the white on their fields.
“We’re really just trying to get our fields clear here so we can actually have a season and get it started so games aren’t pushed too far back,” said Service High School senior goalie Brianna Linnell.
The Cougars were out before the weekend prepping the field which will get more attention Monday.
“They’re (ASD) going to come out and snow plow the rest of the field, so hopefully we’re going to get the field clear so we can play on it Thursday,” said Autumn Straub, a senior halfback with Service.
Ultimately it’s about beginning.
“Getting the season started. Getting the kids out,” said head coach Mark Cascolan, pointing to the green turf. “Seeing more that and less of the shovels. That’s great.”
It can’t come too soon for all involved.
