The HELLP USA SSNYC team’s record is now 1 and 1 after last week’s loss.
25 students from Howard College in Maryland showed up to watch the first 20 minutes of the match before they had to head off to the airport after a week of volunteering and studying homeless services in New York. The group was inspired to make the trip after a student read about the SSUSA Cup in the Washington Post last year and brought the concept and the larger issue of homelessness up to professors.
Unfortunately it was the worst 20 minutes for our team. We never recovered though we took encouragement from a second half we totally dominated.
This week goalkeeper Ray Torres moved out into his old apartment and another player admitted to a long term drug addiction and began looking at options for recovery. That’s what it is all about.
Friday’s match is against Team Denmark (the league leaders at 2-0 with an average margin of victory of 9.5 goals) at 11pm at Chelsea Piers Warehouse. Visit our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=14293280193&ref=ts for info about supporters meeting up before the game.
