SAUGUS (CBS) – Saugus Youth Soccer starts its season next week but they don’t have any goals.
WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Mark Katic Reports
Someone took the goalposts recently, leaving just the nets behind.
Police believe they were stolen to be sold as scrap and that it took some effort to get them out of the complex.
League president Kelly Nickole was the first to discover the theft last Wednesday.
“Once I realized they were cut, I called the person that maintains our field, and he came right down,” she told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Thursday.
“He said ‘Kelly, I think someone took them.'”
The league needs to raise $2,500 to replace the nets. They’ve called an emergency meeting to find a way to meet that goal without delaying the first games, which are set for September 9th.
Former president Frank Paralla said they’ll also discuss security.
“One incident in ten years, I guess that’s not a bad record. But it’s still heartbreaking,” Paralla told WBZ.
