Game organized last Sunday to garner funds for charity
Fair Haven's Daniel Raphael had an idea. He loves soccer and wanted to help displaced Sea Bright residents. So, dad Pat said, Daniel organized a soccer game last Sunday, set up a donation jar and asked for contributions to be forwarded to Sea Bright Rising. Daniel called the charitable game "Soccer for Sea Bright." The game "was a success," Pat said, and "he (Daniel) raised over $1,700 for Sea Bright Rising." The money was sent to the organization and, feeling proud of his son's accomplishment and all the players' and participants' dedication to the cause, Pat sent Patch a couple of photos of the event. In case you missed it, take a look.

Delbarton had its best chance early in the second half as forward Mike Moshier was able to get past the Colts' defense down the right side and come in alone on keeper Steve Donato. Moshier’s shot just missed the left post as it …

Keep your soccer fever alive by attending a Sky Blue or Red Bulls game.
On a beautiful Sunday not too long ago, during a family barbecue, my brother John sat in my dark basement watching the Women’s World Cup Soccer Finals on the big screen. It was weird because John is a die-hard spectator of “guy” sports like football and baseball, and, to my knowledge, had never before viewed any soccer, let alone the kind played by chicks. But the U.S. Women’s Soccer team’s impressive performance this summer in Germany got him, and the rest of America watching. It was a beautiful day indeed. If you thought seeing soccer on TV was exciting, you should watch it live. No, seriously. Get off your butt, unstick your thighs from the couch and go support the sport once and for all, dammit. And, no, sitting on the sidelines …
