AUGUSTA -- The Maine Elks Association announces the winners from its annual State Soccer Shoot competition held at the Augusta Elks Lodge on October 14, 2006. Twenty-three children, sponsored by six different Elk Lodges from across the State of Maine, competed to earn the right to advance to the regional competition to be held in November in Franklin, Massachusetts. The Elks Soccer Shoot is a nationwide soccer shooting skills contest for children under the age of fourteen.

The competition was broken down into two separate events based upon the competitorís age. For children in the U-8 (under 8) and U-10 (9-10 year-olds), the event consisted of a five-goal contest, with goal size decreasing from 48 inches to 17 inches. Points were awarded based on the size of the goal. Each competitor received three shots at each goal, with the highest total score winning the contest. For children in the U-12 (11-12 year olds) and U-14 (13-14 year olds), a full size gridded soccer goal is used. Points were awarded based upon which area the ball entered the goal.

The following winners have earned the right to represent the State of Maine in the regional competition: (Lodge Sponsor included)

  • U-8 Girls-Leah Dufour (Augusta Elks Lodge)
  • U-8 Boys-Kyle Donlin (Rockland Elks Lodge)
  • U-10 Girls-Jenna Hallett (Presque Isle Elks Lodge)
  • U-10 Boys-Alex Watrous (Sebasticook Valley Elks Lodge)
  • U-12 Girls-Faith Crosby (Sanford Elks Lodge)
  • U-12 Boys-Chad Martin (Sebasticook Valley Elks Lodge)
  • U-14 Girls-Kayla Richards (Presque Isle Elks Lodge)
  • U-14 Boys-Steven Letarte (Rumford Elks Lodge)

The children participating in this competition were all winners of local & district soccer shoot contests sponsored by Elk Lodges throughout the State of Maine. Each year, the Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks sponsors this nationwide contest as one of its many youth programs designed to give children an alternative to drugs, provide them with a positive experience, and allow them to have fun. For more information on the Maine Elks Association, or the Elks, visit or visit your local Elks lodge.
