Soccer by the numbers Soccermatics'

Book brings together mathematical modeling and sport

One of the things that first drew me into sports fandom was the prevalence of numbers. Professional sports count a lot of things; as a kid with a proclivity for math and a lot of time on his hands, it's no surprise that I would embrace that side of things.

FORT KENT -- It was a season of symmetry at the University of Maine at Fort Kent with both the men's and women's Bengal soccer teams winning more than 20 games each against just two losses on their paths to winning USCAA National Soccer Championships in dominate fashion.

The UMFK Men's Soccer team cruised to a 21-2 record, outscoring opponents 126-18, scoring 50 goals more than any other team. The Bengals finished the season winning 13 straight matches and were first in goals, shots, shots on goal, assists and shutouts. This is the UMFK Men's second 2nd USCAA National Championship this decade.

Youth sports: parent education

I'm lucky to live in a community that fosters kids' athletics. When it comes to fall sports, kids in Bucksport area schools are spoiled for choice. Last Saturday, when I brought my daughter to youth soccer, I arrived to a smorgasbord of activities: a high school cross country track meet, an elementary boys' football game and elementary boys' and girls' soccer scrimmages. Every track, field and nature trail that was available saw play.

This Saturday was no different. Kids climbed out of minivans with shin guards or shoulder pads, water bottles and cleats. They swarmed the fields like little Olympians. Parents lined the perimeter, some in lawn chairs, others leaning over the fence with purpose, but all were rallied around their kids. As a teacher whose interaction with parents is limited to yearly open house visits, to see this outpouring of parental support just knocks me back.
