So it was Thursday at Oxnard College, where the rain soaked through my “rain” coat, which I bought very cheaply in Arizona and will never make that mistake again. As a Northwest guy, I should be chastised for my raincoat faux pas. At least the players enjoyed it. They played a game coach Sigi Schmid calls “soccer tennis,” did a few drills and packed up after 90 minutes. Everyone was given the afternoon off.
1. Steve Zakuani and Sanna Nyassi (back turned) watch the ball in the air during their “soccer tennis” match vs. Zach Scott and Leighton O’Brien.
2. More soccer tennis.
