Soccer teams from Red Bank’s middle and charter schools faced off under the lights on the new artificial playing surface at Count Basie Field Friday night.

Here’s a recap from kids’ advocate David Prown:

The larger Red Bank Middle School won the inaugural girls Count Basie Cup soccer match 3-0 over the Red Bank Charter School.

Immediately following that game, the Middle School Boys nipped the Charter School 3-2 in a brilliantly hard fought game between friends.

Over 500 screaming, enthusiastic fans attended and enjoyed the energy and the sense of community on this clear, cool night.
