After having a strong start to the year and a great showing for Homecoming weekend, the BEEF Club rolls on for several big upcoming events throughout the second half of the fall sports season. The stands were packed and energetic on both Friday and Saturday this past weekend, with Soccer coming away with the sole dub against Episcopal in a 2-1 battle. The next few weeks hold games that deserve the same level of turnout, if not more so, than any competition so far this year.
For soccer, Varsity has a vital IAC matchup this Friday, October 20th at Bullis (6:30 pm). However, their most important remaining regular season game is their last one on Friday, October 27th, Home vs Landon (4:00 pm). This will certainly be a major BEEF event and one to highly anticipate later in the month. The IAC tournament will then kick off on October 30th, with the semifinals arriving on Halloween. Next, the Championship will be held on November 2md. Hopefully, the soccer dogs will be competing in that game for their third straight IAC playoff title.
For Football, Varsity now enters a rough three-game stretch all on the road. Their season, however, concludes on November 11th with a return home to play top rival Landon (1:30 pm) in another one of the biggest sporting events of the year. This game is by far the most anticipated by anyone involved with the program. The Dawgs look to reclaim victory on their home turf after last year’s heartbreaking 26-27 loss at Landon. This will be the final BEEF event of the fall season. It simply cannot be missed. Get ready to get rowdy and as always, Roll BEEF.
