OFFICIAL VCU SUMMARY

Final Score: VCU: 5, SFU: 1
Location: Richmond, Va. (Sports Backers Stadium)
Records: VCU (6-1-1), SFU: (1-5-1)

THE SHORT STORY

VCU asserted its offensive prowess Sunday afternoon, defeating St. Francis 5-1 behind a second-half brace from senior Amanda Tredway (Downingtown, Pa.).

QUICK FACTS

  • VCU outshot The Red Flash 39-4 on the day, landing 20 of those shots on frame.
  • Juniors Samantha Jerabek (Chesterfield, Va.) and CiCi Fox (Fredericksburg, Va.) led the way with seven shots each.
  • St. Francis got on the board first with a 13thminute goal.
  • Junior Emma Kershner (Centreville, Va.) leveled in the 19thminute on a free kick.
  • VCU went ahead in the 21stminute with a goal from Fox.
  • Jerabek scored in her second-consecutive match to give the Rams a 3-1 lead in the 42ndminute.
  • The Rams continues its offensive assault, when Tredway scored in the 48thminute.
  • Tredway scored her second of the day in the 52ndminute to give VCU a 5-1 lead.

HOW IT HAPPENED

  • VCU was on the front food early, but The Red Flash took an early lead cleaning up a rebound in the 13thminute to go ahead 1-0.
  • The Rams leveled shortly after going down. In the 19thminute, VCU earned a free kick 20-yards out and Kershner bent the free kick into the top left corner of the goal.
  • VCU never looked back, taking control of the match. Fox scored the go-ahead goal for a  2-1 lead when she slipped behind the defense on a through ball and buried the shot.
  • The final goal of the first half came by way of Jerabek when she dribbled through several SFU defenders and sent a rocket to the back of the net from the top of the box.
  • Picking up where they it off before the break, the Rams increased its lead 4-1 in the 48thminute when Tredway received the ball at the top right corner of the penalty area and sent a laser past the SFU keeper.
  • Tredway’s boots stayed hot, notching an unlikely brace in the 52ndminute by bending the ball into the top left corner of frame from the end line at a nearly impossible angle.

WHAT’S NEXT

The Rams begin conference play next week as they travel to take on Duquesne Sunday, September 22 at 1 p.m.

No Soccer but Richmond Kickers and Fans take to the Digital Pitch

Tune into ESPN.com for some hot 3 on 3 car soccer action.

The USL1 soccer season was set to start last weekend. Obviously that didn’t happen. Sports junkies have been reduced to watching reruns of games and marble racing. USL is attempting to fill that live sports void slightly with a Rocket League tournament. Rocket League is a cross-platform 3 on 3 game of car soccer. The cars are turbocharged and the field is enclosed so there are spins, flips, and all sorts of skill maneuvers that talented digital jockeys can pull off.

The worldwide leader in sports, ESPN is set to broadcast the USLeCup on its digital platforms. The Kickers’ Rocket League team consists of one member from the Front Office – Taylor Bostic, one from the youth squad – Aiden Hendricks, and one from the Red Army (the Kickers supporters group) – Mike Dillion. They’ll will be representing the city and its charity partner, Feed More in the tournament.

The United Soccer League (USL) announced today that its relationship with ESPN will extend to the esports realm, with the organization becoming the official streaming platform for USL eCup: Rocket League Edition, which will kick off on Wednesday afternoon on the ESPN app and ESPN.com.

The 32-team World Cup-style tournament features clubs from across the USL Championship and League One competing for bragging rights in the digital arena, and will also benefit local charities nominated by each club to receive donations from fans tuned into the broadcasts and the tournament over the next month.

The Kickers team takes the field on Thursday at 3PM against North Texas.

Some hot Rocket League action to whet your appetite.

Please note that this list is rapidly changing and we’re doing our best to keep it updated but we will at time have some outdated information. Please let us know if there has been a change.

In the interest of public health and safety, the administration of Mayor Levar Stoney recommends that all restaurants, bars, and other establishments that serve food and drink within city limits eliminate bar seating, move tables at least six feet apart and limit their on-site service to 50 percent of their normal capacity. If 50 percent of capacity exceeds the CDC-recommended limit of 50 people gathered, establishments should limit their service to 50 or fewer patrons. The recommendation does not affect any restaurant’s capacity to offer carryout and delivery. In order to support the residents and businesses of Richmond, the administration will introduce on March 23 an ordinance outlining a city amnesty program for all penalties and interest on most local taxes due between March 13 and June 30, 2020. This proposed program will exclude personal property taxes on vehicles, motor vehicle license taxes, and vehicle license fees, as required by ordinance. The city is also exploring options for a program to issue small, no-interest loans to support small businesses. More information on this will be provided at a later date.

The Richmond Flying Squirrels have made their 2020 Education Day curriculum available for Richmond-area students online as a “digital field trip.” The new website includes baseball-themed learning activities for students in grades K-5.

The Education Day activities website can be found here.

The Flying Squirrels annually host Education Days at The Diamond as a learning-centered field trip to a game for schools around the Richmond region. The team has made their 2020 Education Day curriculum, broken down by grade level, available to families and students with schools closed for the rest of the academic year.

“In these unprecedented times, it is still our responsibility to be impactful in our communities, and especially with our future: the kids,” Flying Squirrels VP & COO Todd “Parney” Parnell said. “We are very proud of this wonderful work and hope children and parents alike enjoy learning from this information.”

The Education Day curriculum was designed by a Henrico County educator and incorporates state-mandated objectives. The website includes hands-on activities, educational videos, word problems, printable activity sheets and more that align with the Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) objectives taught to elementary students throughout the school year.

The Flying Squirrels are encouraging participating families to share pictures of their children completing the activities with the team on their Facebook page.

In an effort to practice safe social distancing and best ensure the health and of the Flying Squirrels family, the team’s front offices and team store are currently closed. Fans looking to reach out to the Flying Squirrels front office can find information here and are encouraged to interact on social media through Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
