On Saturday, December 4, the Jade Tree United soccer team made their debut in front of a crowd of 10 at the Absalom Jones Indoor gym in Wilmington, DE.
The team, which consists of Jade Tree owners Tim Owen and Darren Walters; employee and Iranian International Mehron Moqtaderi; Cuban all-stars Victor Alvarez and Alfredo and Andrew Agra; and rising Asian star Tam Bui, is rounded out by the sturdy legs of Alex Rudzinski and Casey Gallucio and the handy Mike Durbin as keeper.
Jade Tree United took the gym floor for their inaugral wearing their fighting orange colors for their match against Grubb Lumber.
Jade Tree United, who started the match without their goalie, were immediately scored upon, setting the tone for a dismal match up which handed JTU a 11-1 defeat.
Victor Alvarez scored Jade Tree’s only goal of the match deep in the first half with a nice shot tucked into the corner.
A rather unimpressive start, but JTU refuses to be beaten. The Orange meet the Gunners on Wednesday at home.
