The Great Southern Migration

Please note we are now moving to South Valleys, with one game continuing at Bishop Manogue each week. This means we can now consolidate our post-game revelry at LAMPPOST PIZZA near R.C. Willey. School is pretty much done so we will see you there.


Thursday June 12th  SOUTH VALLEYS

Chaingang v Golden Slumbers                          Bishop Manogue

Paperless Tigers v Euro Envy                            South Valleys Upper 1

OBG Stoners v Bhoys & Ghirls                         South Valleys Lower 1

Real Studs v Quattro                                        South Valleys Lower 2

Surgical Strikers v Wright Stuff                        South Valleys Upper 1


Results Thursday June 5th   Standings Attached.

Chaingang 4 v 3 Euro Envy                             

Paperless Tigers 6 v 1 Golden Slumbers 

OBG Stoners 5 v 1 Real Studs                         

Surgical Strikers 1 v 0 Quattro              

Bhoys & Ghirls 1 v 1 Wright Stuff          



“Wright Stuff Win the Pennant Again, Wright Stuff Win the Pennant Again, Wright Stuff Win the Pennant Again, Wright Stuff Win the Pennant Again, Wright Stuff Win the Pennant Again, Wright Stuff Win the Pennant Again.”

In the season’s biggest upset to date, the Wright Stuff pulled off the miracle on grass holding the mighty Bhoys & Ghirls to a 1-1 tie. Not even the midfield trio of Willy Wallace, Mel Gibson and Robert the Bruce were enough to propel the Scottish and neo-Scottish hordes to victory over the buoyed Stuff who have now notched-up consecutive non-defeats


Spot Kick Nick Penetrates the Great Wall of Cork

Over on NV2 a solitary Dr. Nick spot kick was enough to arrest the Strikers recent plunge in form to defeat the sputtering Quattro. If only Quattro’s Dani “the babe-faced assassin” Palermo, could have struck the same gold she found in Sonora this past weekend where she participated in numerous athletic events: netting six-goals in an AARP soccer tournament, while also winning the caber toss, the 110 meter high hurdles and an episode of Jeopardy.


We Are the Knights Who Go Ouch

Juxtaposed on NV1 the Chaingang ran into stiffer (now, now) opposition than they may have expected from Euro Envy who are still missing key marquis signings. Chaingang were forced to make changes as Reggie “it’s a mere flesh wound” Bolden was forced to the bench after he had acquainted himself with the assorted body parts of the entangled Mother Theresa Morgan and Ken “Sportsdome” Lancaster. Fortunately Bolden’s early bath opened the door for a sparkling performance between the sticks from Chris “Mr. Whiskers” Arbogast by doing his part in the rear for Reggie. It remained a near run thing but the ‘Gang held on for a 4-3 victory to thrust themselves right back into the title race.


Tigers Beginning to Burn Bright in the Artificial Turf of the Night

Down south the recently toothless Tigers finally found their dentures to put some bite back into their attack to dampen the recent revival of the injury-ridden Slumbers. A hat-trick from Mircea the Merciless, a brace from Jim “Evergreen” Verdi and a season first for Jordan “named for two countries” France brought the Tigers tally to 6 and put the Slumbers back on the operating table for an overhaul.


Appeals For Clemency Fall Upon TC Esq.’s Deaf Ears

Teddy, Teddy, Teddy “Boom. Boom, Boom” Chrissinger was at it again. Another hat-trick has propelled him to the top of the goal scoring charts and the Stoners back into the title hunt after last week’s stumble with a 5-2 victory of the enigmatic and unpredictable Studs. Old Mama Shelly’s brace put her back on top of the ladies’ scoring chart to placed a 14 point, bolded triple exclamation mark on the fact that OBG mean business as the pack-up the old base camp that is Reno High and make their descent to South Valleys, or maybe I should say ascent….

World Cup Action

Almost here, Thursday June 12th Brazil vs. Croatia 1pm kick off.  I have sent out two ways to join in all that speculative fun but just in case I am sending them again with this edition of the Goalpost. So long as you email me your entries before kick- off of the first game on Thursday (June 12th) you are good so long as you get the entry fee(s) to me shortly after.


You Gotta Watch England Win Somewhere or at least Watch a Grown Englishman Cry Somewhere.

You may have already made some decisions about where you are going to watch World Cup Games but consider these options. The Sportsdome will be hosting all the games (see attached) and you will be sure to run into some buddies there. League member Jason Cole is suggesting the Chapel Tavern (1099 S Virginia St  Reno, NV  775.324.2244) and  40 Mile Saloon (1495 S Virginia St  Reno, NV 775.323.1877) and league member Chris Kahl, owner of the Old Bridge Pub and a home of the American Outlaws will surely be putting on a few games. Chirs will be offering all league members a special discount card for the Old Bridge and his other enterprise The Brewer’s Cabinet. Drop by and say you’re an RSCSL member and you will get a card.


A Few Rule Reminders


1.    You do NOT need permission from the ref to sub in/out but you should wait for a dead ball situation to do so.

2.    There is no slide TACKLING. You can slide to save or reach a ball so long as it is not considered dangerous to another player by the referee. Goalkeepers can slide in the box but such slides are governed by the standard rules of the game. i.e. take someone out and it is a foul!

3.    Red cards – the carded player is done for the game but he/she CAN be subbed.
