ESSEX — Every summer CCBC Essex holds a summer league for local high school soccer players.

The league is informal and played on half-fields, with no official scores or standings kept.

And, being an unofficial league, the players do not compete under the names of their respective schools. This year, teams were called “Point 1,” “Point 2,” “Wise,” “Ebenezer,” “Providence,” “Black Magic,” “Putty Hill” and “Mace.”

The league started in early June and ended the last week of July — just in time to give the players a two-week break before the start of high school practice on August 13.

There were leagues for boys and girls soccer. Unfortunately, rain postponed the boys’ games the week they were to be photographed.

This season will see the Sparrows Point girls soccer team move up to Class 2A while attempting to win its seventh consecutive state title, while the Pointer boys try to bounce back from a disappointing season that saw them lose in the regional playoffs as the defending Class 1A state champs.
