“Annual Elks “”Soccer Shoot”””

“Easton Elks Lodge 1622 held their annual “”Soccer Shoot”” at the Community Center. Judges Joe Landgraf, Connie Wolcott, Sara Langrell and George Thomas work to score the 116 children who competed for trophies, in age appropriate competition for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. The winners will go to the Elks District competition in Crisfield and then to the National competition. The Elks teamed up with the Talbot Soccer Association and “”Family Fun Day.””

TSA was formerly the Soccer League of Talbot. They have over 600 kids on 40 teams. This is mostly a recreational league with a few traveling teams. To help with fees the 40 teams are sponsored by local businesses. For more information contact Talbot Soccer Association.org .
