By Kara Hallissey | Feb 22, 2018

(Feb. 23, 2018) The 30th annual St. Patrick’s indoor soccer tournament series begins today, at Northside Park.

The first tournament is scheduled this weekend, Feb. 23-25, with under 18 girls’ and boys’ divisions. In addition, there will be an adult tournament consisting of six-on-six play, with the requirement of at least two female players on each team.

“A lot of these teams, especially the adults who have participated since we started 30 years ago as kids, have made it a tradition to come down and compete,” tournament director Kim Kinsey said. “There are teams from the Eastern Shore and rivalries among local teams. The competition is always good and it’s a chance to spend the weekend in Ocean City.”

This weekend, there will be 18 girls’ and boys’ teams and nine adult teams competing in the tournament. Play will begin at 6 p.m. on Friday and continue until about 11:30 p.m., with two pool-play games followed by a single-elimination tournament.

On Saturday, the tournament starts at 8 a.m. with the last game finishing up around 11 p.m. Playoff games are scheduled on Saturday afternoon, starting at 3 p.m.

Play will continue on Sunday beginning at 8 a.m. and continuing until around 5 p.m. For more information, call 410-250-0125.
