The Steamboat Springs High School men’s soccer team is headed to Denver this Saturday to take on Centaurus High School, of Boulder, at Dick Sporting Goods Park (DSGP) in Commerce City. DSGP is the home to the MLS’s Colorado Rapids. This game is a very special opportunity for the players of both teams, to get to play on the same field as the Colorado Rapids. This opportunity doesn’t come easy and certainly won’t happen without some help from the community.
In order for the Sailors to have the opportunity to play at DSGP, they must, as a team, raise half of the funds required to staff the facility for the game. In order to raise the funds they need, the Sailors are selling tickets to the game for $10 apiece, and the tickets are available through the SSHS front office. You may not be able to make it to the game Saturday, but the Sailors are hoping that their community will get behind them to purchase a few more tickets, or make a donation, to help them have the opportunity to play at DSGP.
The Sailors have played at DSGP and the park has been very good to them. The last time the Sailors ventured to Commerce City to take on Centaurus, in 2015, the Sailors were treated to a final minute win off the foot of Charlie Beurskens in what equates to a hail marry of a shot from more than 30 yards out. Watch and Hear the call from the voice of the Sailors, Vladen Chase, here:
Please consider helping out the SSHS Boys Soccer team and purchase tickets to this weekends game!
