The evening light at Clayton State’s soccer field is gorgeous … too bad it won’t be all season, as the sun goes down earlier and earlier. This frame (CSU’s Jency Ramirez dribbles the ball downfield.) is from last week, when I shot a soccer doubleheader there. The men played the Tampa Spartans, and the women battled the Wingate Bulldogs. It was a heartbreaker, considering both teams tied, even two overtime periods each. Here are a few of my favorite frames from each game.
Melissa Hetherington rallies her teammates just before heading into overtime against Wingate.
Adam Halliday gets a header over a Tampa’s Drew Buckley.
Though Wingate’s Jade Montgomery is down, she still tries to maintain control of the ball over CSU midfielder Jency Ramirez.
CSU’s sole senior Alicia Robinson goes up for a header.
CSU’s Alhagi Toure lends a hand to Tampa captain Andrew Clare.
CSU’s Kevin Rodriguez follows the ball after falling during action.
