Weekly Bulletin: SPSL “bowled over”

Posted: January 12, 2011 in Weekly Updates

Football, soccer…whatever you call it, the surprise and bewilderment never leaves the world’s game. There is plenty to be decided in a chock-full weekend of SPSL happenings.

BCS Championship:  If you thought Auburn and Oregon produced a game for the ages, the SPSL brings you Galveston vs. Tulsa in double-header action this weekend. 

Rose Bowl:  Roses are red, violets are blue, sugar is sweet, and undefeated seasons are too.  Tulsa Lobos FC remains the SPSL’s only undefeated side.  Can Galveston derail the dream train?

TicketCity Bowl:  If there’s one game to see this weekend, it’s game two of the Galveston-Tulsa duel.  A team is only as good as its last performance.  Who will recline comfortably on the league’s throne for at least the following week?

Pinstripe Bowl: 
In their last trip to Corpus Christi, the Regals FC players barely escaped jail and a punishing point depletion from the lowly Fuel.  Corpus Christi constructed a late comeback that fell just short in a 3-2 defeat, but the team has been itching for a second chance and will attempt to put the final details on its Cinderella project when it hosts the Houstonians this weekend. 

Armed Forces Bowl:  Corpus Christi finally came together and united to defeat Galveston Pirate SC in its last game of 2010.  Will the troops be able to pull together and become a formidable unit in 2011? 

Insight Bowl:  The holidays were hardly a hibernation period for Pirate SC.  The team was up and active as far as roster renovation is concerned.  Out are many Galveston notables such as Roy and Luis Hernandez.  In is an old face, Justin Santibanez as well as new faces bringing mystique, anxiety, and hope into the Pirate SC palace.

Music City Bowl:  It was music to Regals FC’s ears when the Hernandez brothers announced their desire to relocate from Galveston to the Maya Park grounds.  Regals FC’s already potent offense will now have even more ammunition to carry with it in 2011.
