Iraq wins Asian Cup, rec leagues currently enrolling, and more
On the local scene, the Austin Lightning's Premier Development League season is over, the summer rec season has been just about rained out, and everyone's pointing to the fall. Rec leagues are currently enrolling: men, women, and coed (www.austinsoccernet.com, www.awsl.org, www.acsasoccer.org), with play starting in about a month. And the Lady Longhorns kick off Aug. 24.
Longhorns Stephanie Logterman and Kelsey Carpenter both played in every game, as the U.S. Under-21 Women won the Nordic Cup last week, beating Sweden and Norway, each 1-0, and Germany, 4-0, in the final. -- Nick Barbaro
