Labor Day is a good time to reflect on the guilty pleasures I can afford. I like Chinese, but I prefer a steak and potato. I like pina coladas and I don't mind getting caught in the rain. I like different types of music, but prefer classic rock. I'm not partial to broccoli. I'd rather have an ear of corn. Soccer isn't my favorite sport. I just enjoy football. I'll stop there. This sounds like an online dating profile. Everyone has a list of preferences.

Pete Grunberg has been the junior varsity boys soccer coach at North Hagerstown High School since 2002 and served as an assistant to varity coach Glenn Singer, so it seemed he was the logical choice to take over after Singer retired after the 2012 season. “I wanted the job because I enjoy coaching and interacting with the kids,” said Grunberg, who was officially named as Singer's successor recently. Born in the South American nation of Chile, Grunberg lived there for four years before the family moved to Hagerstown in 1970.

As a defender in soccer, Emily Cronise hasn't had her name in the newspaper very often, as she's not usually the one scoring the goals or making the assists. But that doesn't seem to bother the Boonsboro senior. What really bothers her is the opposition scoring goals, and that's why it rarely happens under her watch. This fall, Cronise led Boonsboro to an 8-4-4 record. While the Warriors only managed to score 19 goals on the year, they only had a mere seven scored against them as they posted 11 shutouts, including a 1-0 upset of Williamsport in the final of the Washington County tournament.

Pretty much everything Broadfording’s boys soccer team started this season, junior Andrew Torres finished. After scoring 21 goals and adding 10 assists in an All-County First Team campaign last season, Torres was moved to striker by Lions coach David Grimm this season. “It started off a little slow, but we got it together a little bit,” Torres said. “We got the lineup adjusted and really made a good run.” The new position fit Torres like a glove.

As part of the annual Silent Saturday, soccer coaches and spectators were prohibited from giving instructions or shouting encouragement while games were in play. The goal was for the players to learn to rely on each other rather than on parents and coaches, soccer league commissioner Heidi Tennant said.

WAYNESBORO, Pa. -- At a Waynesboro Area Senior High School soccer game on Thursday, it wasn't about the score or the players' athletic prowess. The focus was a 15-year-old boy not at the game because he was receiving chemotherapy at Hershey (Pa.) Medical Center. Ethan Barnhart's classmates organized the faculty vs. student soccer game in tribute to his fight against Ewing's Sarcoma. Nine hundred students paid $1 each to watch the game during an advisory period. Barnhart's family selected the American Cancer Society and Four Diamonds Fund as recipients of the money raised.
