8-player soccer kicks off throughout Maine

The nation’s latest highschool sport has made its debut.

With Knowledge’s (St. Agatha) 6-2 victory over Van Buren on Wednesday, the nation’s first official recreation of boys eight-player soccer entered the books.

This April, greater than two dozen girls and boys highschool soccer groups from across the state made the swap to eight-player soccer, because of reducing enrollment and to stay aggressive. Maine was the primary state within the nation to undertake the game.
