  Author's Note: Sorry, but I have to update the Belen part of this.  I was working off the MaxPreps roster and there are three names that I have wrong.  Since they combined for 9 goals and 2 assists it's a whopper.  My apologies to the kids I misnamed and the updated article now reflects the proper ones.  Ricardo Mayo is now Nico Smith, Jorge Suarez is now Dieter Prussing and John Micali is now Victor Mejer!   Note: Gulliver-St Edward's pictures from Jen Uccelli and the Belen-BC pictures were provided to me by Orlando Fernandez   Ernie Banks, someone the coaches know but the kids probably don't unless they are baseball aficionados, once said "It's a great day to play two!". Of course he was referring to his team doing that but I got to do the next best thing .
