MS soccer season begins

November 6, 2007 at 11:59 am 1 comment


The Belmont Middle School boy’s soccer team opened the season with a 3-1 win over Bessemer City at home last evening.

Belmont appears to have a few good players that will help the team put together a good season for the Wildcats.

Colby Stephens had two goals for the Wildcats and Jamie Padgett contributed a third goal.

Catch all the MS soccer reports here on the Front Porch. Yes, we like soccer…

Speaking of which, Ashbrook HS will be the big winner in the up-and-coming couple of years with a HUGE influx of seasoned club players and athletes for their soccer program. Grier Middle School and Holbrook Middle School are the primary feeder schools for Ashbrook. Both schools are loaded this MS season.

Greir won their opener yesterday with an 11-1 win over Mt. Holly. Cramerton won 7-0 over Stanley.

Southwest MS and York Chester feed into Hunter Huss and both teams are expected to have respectable seasons.

The Belmont Front Porch season predictions for the Regular Season are:

  1. Grier
  2. Cramerton
  3. Holbrook
  4. Southwest
  5. Belmont
  6. York Chester 
  7. Bessemer City
  8. Mt. Holly
  9. Chavis
  10. W.C. Friday
  11. Stanley

The top 4 teams advance to the County Championships in early December.

Good Luck Wildcats !      bms-wildcat.jpg

    I would like to thank everyone for making my campaign such a positive experience. Although I came in fourth, I was only 40 votes from unseating a popular and long time incumbent. This was a solid showing for a first time candidate. I honestly would have liked to have won, but my election was secondary to electing a council which would approach growth with moderation. The good of the many I believe has been achieved and I am very pleased that this has been accomplished. I prepared for this campaign and the issues that concern Belmont. I presented new approaches to growth and encouraged a review of our current codes and zoning within Belmont’s land development code. A key objective was to highlight what might happen to Belmont if we do not address growth. In my handouts I offered my ideas with links to web-sites which further detailed Belmont’s options regarding “managed growth”. I will continue to be involved in Belmont’s political and civic organizations. I do plan to offer myself as a candidate for council in two years. Belmont is a wonderful town, we as citizens can help to determine how our town will evolve. I would challenge each of you to find a way to become involved at some level and contribute to our future.

    Best regards,
    Richard Turner
