We are having some fun for a good cause. On our most recent episode of the podcast, Ray, Dylan and Alan did a 6 round fantasy draft of Orange County SC players. For the month of June, we will be keeping track of stats, in hopes of our roster winning the first ever “Orange & Black SoccerCast Playing for Pride Orange County SC Fantasy Soccer Challenge”, or OABSCPFPOCSCFSC for short.

The rules are pretty simple. We each drafted 6 players who we hope will play great in the month of June to help our team win. The winner gets a yet to be determined trophy, while the two losers will each personally donate $25 to Playing for Pride.

Here are the ways points can be earned (or lost):

  • Shot on Target = 1 point

  • Goal = 2 points (total of 3 points for shot on target and goal)

  • Assist = 3 points

  • Appearance = 1 point

  • Start = 2 points (total of 3 points for start and appearance)

  • Save (GK) = 1 point

  • Clean Sheet (GK) = 5 points

  • Hat trick = 2 points (total of 11 points for 3 shots on target, 3 goals, and hat trick)

  • Yellow Card = -1 point

  • Red Card = -3 points

  • Own goal = -5 points

Bonus: If the team or any player’s Twitter is hacked in the month of June, the first person to Tweet about it gets 69 bonus points.
