The Dynamic Duo of the SaberCats and SuperCats
Southmoore Men’s Soccer has had the honor and opportunity to work with Southmoore’s incredibly talented Special Education program to train and play in the Special Olympics soccer tournament in Owasso on October 11. Six of the boys have had an absolute blast working with the SuperCats to prepare for the big event and will travel with the team on Wednesday to the competition. Jordan Morrison, Ethan Hibbs, Mason Howell, Coleman Little, Cooper Duncan, and Ryan Huerta have all been working with the kids on a weekly basis to sharpen their skills and, more importantly, create friendships that will last a lifetime. Both teams have had a lot of fun and the coaching staffs have been very pleased with how the event is coming together. Coach Tam, Southmoore men’s varsity assistant, said, “I think it’s a great opportunity for our players and the SuperCats to work together. It is clearly beneficial for the development and personal growth of both groups of players.”
The fun doesn’t stop there for Southmoore’s SuperCats and SaberCats though. Last week, Energy FC star, Richard Dixon, came out to training to help with the session. Dixon was joined by a familiar face at Energy FC, Jason Hawkins, and Energy FC personality Darren Ransley. All three jumped into training alongside the soccer boys and SuperCats and put in some work on the futsal court. Energy FC TV’s main man, Brent Sharky, was at Southmoore reporting on the session and his segment was aired during halftime of Sunday’s match vs LA Galaxy II, which Energy FC won 3 – nil in a dominating performance.
Like Energy FC on their playoff push, the SuperCats are really starting to come together on the pitch. Everyone in Owasso better lock their doors because the Southmoore SuperCats have an arsenal of attacking options in the team. Isaac “Zlatan” Meyers has been averaging 7.5 goals per session and Sheldon “Pogba” Smith has been absolutely menacing in her defensive work-rate in the middle of the park. All of the SuperCats have been putting in a shift during every session and have been stringing together some impressive displays.
The tournament will take place in Owasso, OK on Wednesday, Oct. 11. Stay tuned for updates after the competition!
