Do you want to WIN an OUR GAME T-SHIRT and other prizes?
On March 10th, we want to hit 10,000 “likes” on the Our Game Facebook page.
You and 10,000 Readers vs. Our Game
10 a.m. on Thursday March 10th and it will be a 90-hour game
When the game begins, start recommending friends to “like” the Our Game Facebook page.
Once we reach the 10,000 “likes” the game is over.
The way to win is if a friend you recommend is the 10,000th “like”
If your friend is the 10,000th “like”, you AND your friend win an Our Game T-shirt and other prizes TBA.
Since a soccer game is 90 minutes long, we are giving you 90 hours to complete this task.
Starts: March 10th at 10 a.m.
Ends: March 15th at 4 a.m.
If by March 15th at 4 a.m. we have not reached our 10,000 “likes”, there will be an additional 10 hours of overtime. Overtime ends March 15th at 2 p.m. If by the end of overtime we have not reached our 10,000 “likes”, the game ends in a tie and nobody wins.
Every match needs a Most Valuable Player. We will be naming the player who gets the most friends to “like” the Our Game Facebook page as the 10 for 10,000 M.V.P. The M.V.P. will win an Our Game t-shirt!
*If you start the game with friends who already “like” the page, those DO count in the overall total.
You have to recommend a minimum of 10 friends, but the maximum friends you can recommend is endless. The more friends you recommend, the better chance you have at winning. Just recommending your friends doesn’t ensure your chances of winning. Your friends have to “like” the Facebook page in order for you to have a chance to win. Make sure they actually join, stay on top of your friends!!
In the case that more than one player recommended the 10,000th “like”, both players win.
In order to win, you must send in a screen shot of your Our Game Facebook page showing the number of YOUR friends that “like” the page. (You can also take a picture with a camera of the screen and send it in). Once the contest is officially over, all entries must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Each email must include the following – 10 for 10,000 subject title, your name and mailing address, along with the photo of the screen.
Now, get in the game! Start recommending your friends!
Here’s some stuff we picked up off the cutting room floor from the December issue of Our Game Magazine …
Melissa Gavin, featured in the Quick Kicks segment, was recently named a High School All-American following her senior season at Duxbury High School (Massachusetts). The Scorpions Soccer Club forward also committed to play soccer next fall at Yale University. She finished this past high school season as the top scorer in her league and one of the best in the state, even ahead of her Scorpions Soccer Club teammate and U.S. U-20 midfielder Samantha Mewis. With Duxbury High this fall, Gavin finished third in the state in scoring (29 goals, 15 assists, 44 points, in 23 games). Gavin’s team posted a record of 18-3-2, losing in the Division 2 Sectional championship game.
Featured in Center Stage this month, Heather Garriock has helped lead her team to a great run in the W-League. But the midfielder’s team, Sydney FC, saw its 14-game unbeaten streak snapped last week with a 2-1 loss to the Newcastle Jets. The winning goalkeeper for Newcastle was Allison Lipsher, who played the last two seasons with the Boston Breakers of the WPS. Despite the loss, Garriock and Sydney FC are looking to get back into first place with a win Saturday (Dec. 11) against Perth Glory. Brisbane Roar currently sit in first place in the W-League. On Nov. 21, Garriock had an assist in a 4-1 win over Adelaide United, which gave Sydney FC, a.k.a. the Sky Blues, their 14th straight win.
Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) free agency officially began Wednesday, Nov. 17, and since then a handful of players have signed, either with their current teams, or in the case of some players, such as Allie Long, they’ve inked deals with new teams.
Long talked to Our Game Magazine Friday about signing with Sky Blue FC. Long played the previous two seasons with the Washington Freedom. The midfielder started 21 games for the Freedom in 2010. She scored two goals and had one assist. The 23-year-old UNC grad will be playing close to home, having grown up in Northport, N.Y.
“I’m really excited to be able to play for Sky Blue FC,” Long said Friday morning. “I’m hoping I can help my team win another championship, and it’s always nice that my family and friends can watch me a lot more now.”
The Boston Breakers announced Thursday the signings of free agent defenders Rachel Buehler and Kasey Moore. Moore has played the last two seasons with the Breakers, while Buehler played two seasons with FC Gold Pride, the 2010 WPS champions. Buehler also is a member of the U.S. Women’s National Team.
Former Washington Freedom keeper Ashlyn Harris signed this week with the expansion Western New York Flash. In the recent Expansion Draft, the Flash selected defender Kaley Fountain from the Atlanta Beat and midfielder Beverly Goebel from the Washington Freedom. The Flash also unveiled their team logo.
