An Anna Maria Island Community Center Soccer League Division I tussle between Ross Built, featuring twin brothers Andrew and Jake Ross, and Island Real Estate, which boasts Neil Carper and Ray Fano, never materialized on Oct. 10. Island Real Estate had to forfeit the match as only five players showed, giving Ross Built the 1-0 victory.
The win gives Ross a 4-2-1 record, three points ahead of second place Mike Norman Realty, which has a 3-2-1 record. Division II-leader Mr. Bones and Premier-leader West Coast Air Conditioning both boast 5-0 records and hold eight-point leads in their respective divisions over the second-place holders.
With the season about half over, teams in those divisions better start cutting into their leads or their chances for winning the division crown will be gone rather shortly.
