Cristo Rey Dallas College Prep will host its first ever “kids vs. contractors” soccer game on Friday, March 10. Called “Back the Smack,” the match was conceived when contractors building the school’s $10-million academic center began offering not-so-subtle skills advice during after-school soccer practices. Not to be underestimated, the soccer team threw down the gauntlet by officially challenging the contractors to see if they could back up their “smack talk” with their skills on the field.
Word of the match spread quickly and it has now grown to an anticipated community event. Students, parents, faculty and fans are all invited to see the fast-paced, fun competition and enjoy a pre-game barbecue to kickoff Spring Break.
