(March 9, 2018) On Saturday and Sunday, spectators can catch a free game during the 30th annual St. Patrick’s indoor soccer tournament at Northside Park on 125th Street.

Play begins at 9 a.m. tomorrow, Saturday, and continues until about 8:45 p.m., with two pool-play games, followed by a single-elimination tournament.

There are 28 girls’ and boys’ teams competing in two divisions: under 10 and under 14.

On Sunday, the tournament starts at 9 a.m. and will finish up around 3 p.m.

Teams are guaranteed three games with at least one game in a playoff bracket during the single-elimination tournament and teams play until they lose.

“The competition is always good and a lot of these teams have made it a tradition to come down and compete,” tournament director Kim Kinsey said.

The first tournament took place Feb. 23-25 with under-18 girls’ and boys’ divisions, in addition to an adult tournament consisting of six-on-six play, with the requirement of at least two female players on each team. Eighteen girls’ and boys’ teams and nine adult teams competed in the tournament.

Last weekend, there were 28 girls’ and boys’ teams competing in two divisions: under 12 and under 16.

Salisbury United Soccer Club- Queens of the Court won the under-12 girls’ division, while 32 Seconds out of Baltimore took home top honors in the under-12 boys’ division.

Riverward, out of Philadelphia, were the champions of the under-16 boys’ tournament, while Salisbury United Soccer Club 03 Gold came out victorious in the under-16 girls’ division.

The final tournament of the season is scheduled for March 16-18, with 42 adult men’s and women’s teams expected to compete from 3 p.m. on Friday to 6:30 p.m. Sunday.

There is no fee for spectators to watch a game at Northside Park.
