In case you missed it, our first ever High School All-Star Soccer Game was a huge hit! The stands were packed to see the best high school senior soccer players from Escambia, Santa Rosa and Okaloosa Counties battle it out! The East Teams, represented by players from Santa Rosa and Okaloosa Counties, came out on top in both the Boys and the Girls match. The East Girls dominated, taking home a 5-1 victory. The Boys game was slightly closer, but the East again pulled out the victory 2-0. Congratulations to all of our All-Stars! Good luck!
