Intramural Soccer Wraps Up

Concord University hosts a wide variety of Intramural sports on campus, and last week saw the tail end of the intramural indoor soccer season, with the Semifinals match on Wednesday, Feb. 3, and the Championship match on Thursday, February 4. The goal of Concord’s Intramurals is to bring out more people to have fun who may not usually play sports, according to Chris Smallwood, Director of Concord’s Intramurals.

    The main intramural sports found on Concord’s campus include not only indoor soccer, but flag football, volleyball, five-on-five basketball, and softball. Every single intramural sport gets a playoff and a championship and are open to both men and women; each team is supposed to have one girl on the floor at all times. “We’ve had players come out here and play and I’ve encouraged them to join a varsity team and they were able to walk on and play,” Smallwood says, citing former student Larry Thompson as an example. Thompson went on to play for the football team and is now the football coach at Mount View High School.

    There were 14 teams playing Intramural soccer this year, separated into two divisions based on skill level. Smallwood called all of the teams “incredibly talented,” however only four teams made it to the semi-finals. The first Semifinal match pitted The Coaches against Team Ramrod, whose last match against each other went into overtime and took six penalty kicks before ending in favor of The Coaches.

    The Coaches went on to defeat Team Ramrod once again in their Semifinals match with a score of 4-3 after one five minute overtime. The second Semifinals match between The Broken Ones III and The Untouchables ended with a score of 4-2, netting a win for The Broken Ones III, who went on to face The Coaches in the Championship match the next day. The Coaches were the overall champions this year, defeating The Broken Ones III with a score of 3-1. The next Intramural sport starting this semester will be five-on-five basketball, and students can follow all of the Intramural Sports on their twitter at @CUintramurals, on Instagram at, or on their Facebook.
