Field Notes

North Valleys on Sky Vista. Go north on 395, turn right at Lemmon Valley exit, then first left on Sky Vista. Fields are about 1 mile on right.

South Valleys on Wedge Parkway.  Field being used is on lower fields closest to Wedge.

Eagle Canyon – take Pyramid north, turn left on Eagle Canyon as if going to Spanish Springs High School. Field is on the left right before Shaw Middle School.  Yes, this is way out there, but we only have three games there; no one will play there more than once.  Just try to avoid the old landmines from WW1. It will take about 15 minutes from Pyramid and McCarran.


If you have a jersey from a previous season – bring it. Give it to me or a captain.

The Forecast

Dry, clear, mid 60’s at kick off. Going will be firm.


If you have not paid, don’t forget. I am going to try to put in an appearance at every location this week… My Sicilian cousins are helping me line the fields….


We are a social league. We like to get together after the games (it certainly helps us get over games that maybe got a wee bit chippy). When we are playing at North Valleys, folk gravitate to Archies on North Virginia near UNR. Those playing in the south head to Lamppost Pizza near RC Willey. By the second half of the season we are all playing down south, so we all go to Lamppost.

I cannot make you have fun, but I want you to have fun. Our league members are a great group; get to know them.  Personally, I am always open to someone buying me a beer.

Keeping Score

A few changes are being made to discourage “running up the score” as a team or individually.

League Standings:

  1. 3 points for a win, 1 point for a tie, a bonus point will be awarded for a shut out (or as we say in Old Blighty, a cleansheet.)

  2. Any win of more than three goals will be recorded with a maximum 3 goal margin for goal differential purposes.

  3. The first tiebreaker will be head-to-head competition. (Yes, I hear the groans from the commonwealth caucus.)

Individual scorers

    An individual will be credited with up to three goals maximum in a game.
