Mt. Vernon Soccer Preparing for New Season, Tough Opening Tournament in Metro East

MT. VERNON — The early summer rains kept Mt. Vernon Rams boys’ soccer from getting in some June workouts, but Rams coach Vimal Patel believes his team will be ready for the season kickoff in a few weeks at the Metro Cup.

Patel says his guys have been making up the early time lost in July, and will have extra practice time this year in August.

The Rams lost in the championship game of the Metro Cup to Father McGivney last year. This year, they will open up the Cup with the Griffins on August 27th.
