The Mount Angel Guardians soccer team gathered on their newly-landscaped soccer field this past Sunday, September 21, for a pre-season scrimmage against a group of soccer players from Silverton, Oregon, that Dr. Andrew Cummings assembled. Cummings described his team, formerly called the Silverton All-Stars, as "a motley crew of dads and lads."
The Guardians lost, with a final score of 6-2.
