Boys soccerAmerican Overseas School of Rome at Marymount Saturday “When in Rome, do as the Romans do,” goes the well-known saying. This spring, visitors to Rome might consider scoring a soccer goal or two. Rome-based schools AOSR and MMI continued to set the standard for DODEA-Europe Division II soccer as another spring season got underway last weekend. The AOSR Falcons routed Vicenza 10-3, while the MMI Royals scored all of their goals in the second half of a 5-2 defeat of Aviano. Now the two Roman powerhouses turn their efforts towards each other, and such occasions usually produce a remarkably high level of competition. That was certainly the case last spring, when Marymount edged AOSR 3-2 in overtime in a classic Division II title match. This weekend’s meeting might represent not just a rematch of last year’s final, but a preview of this year’s.
