Like a Las Vegas table dealer, Margaretville boys’ soccer coach Jeremy Marks reshuffled his Blue Devils’ deck. Exchanging personnel back and forth between lines, Marks gave his team a new look. The Margaretville mix and match dealt Marks and his Blue Devils a winning hand.

It was like a step back in time. Watching Elia Tanzer launch her Margaretville varsity soccer career was like reversing the clock several years to watch another Margaretville freshman, the Blue Devils’ prolific scoring threat of years gone by, Claire Cella.
