Central girls soccer team meets Wilmot in first game for new stadium

The Central High School girls scocer teams were the first to break-in the new multi-use stadium with junior varsity and varsity contests Monday versus rival Wilmot.

“It’s good to get the girls playing,” said Central athletic director Kris Allison, who was on hand for the momentous event.

Not too long ago it appeared doubtful that the stadium would be used this season. Paddock Lake, on April 21, had rejected a request from the school for a temporary certificate to use the mostly complete stadium. The village had concerns about safety issues that were not addressed.

Afterwards, school officials initiated more communication with the village, which culminated in a vote last Thursday to grant the temporary certificate.

Now able to use the stadium, the school is making the best of it. The soccer team has scheduled six home games in the next two weeks. The track teams are using the facility for practice as can physical education classes.

Here’s some video from before and the first few minutes of the JV game Monday:
