We look forward to our third round of home games on Saturday, August 7th, at our home fields at the Davis Turf Fields complex against Arctic Rush! The Women’s team kicks off at 4:30 p.m. and the Men’s team kicks off at 7:00 p.m. Please plan to join us in person on Saturday for the games at 1966 Davis Road in Fairbanks. We’ll have food from Roaming Wolf Grill, and Goldie’s AK will be serving Black Spruce Brewing Company beer and their own cocktails made using Ursa Major Distilling products! Performing artist Willa Watts will sing the national anthem at both games. The Alaska Golden Heart Cheer squad will perform at halftime of the men’s game, and we’ll have raffle prizes at the halftimes of both games, including a grand prize from Northern Alaska Tour Company!
Last weekend we hosted our second round of home games against Cook Inlet Soccer Club. Our men’s team was held to a disappointing 0-0 draw despite dominating for long stretches of the game and hitting the woodwork. They remain in 2nd place in the Last Frontier Conference league standings. Our women’s team played a thrilling Blue versus Gold game after the Cook Inlet Women’s team failed to field a side and forfeited the game. The women’s game featured some standout performances and the squad was delighted to welcome back a number of players who returned from college camps and national tournaments! Thank you to the hundreds of fans who turned out to watch the games!
Two weekends ago we traveled south to Anchorage for our third weekend of away games on July 17th against Arctic Rush. Our men’s team picked up a thrilling 3-2 win on a 92nd minute goal by leading scorer Nick Herzberg to establish themselves alone in second place. Nick had two goals on the game, on assists from Tobias Albrigtsen and Skyler Denny, and Skyler scored the other goal on a penalty. Our women’s team had a hard-fought loss to Arctic Rush and continues to work towards its first win of the season.
On July 10th our men’s team beat Alaska Timbers 4-2 on goals from Nick Herzberg and Kevin Martinez, while our women’s team lost to Alaska Thorns 6-0. Nick Herzberg scored a first-half hat-trick, the first hat-trick in Fairbanks Soccer Club history! On July 11th our men’s team played Pioneer United in a matchup of the last two undefeated teams in the league, and dropped a closely contested game 2-0. We were proud of the effort put in by our players during our second away trip of the season!
