On Saturday, the Tenleytown Tigers of the Stoddert Soccer League whupped 13-and-under division rivals from the French International School, 4-1.
But when the girls from both teams lined up for the usual post-game handshake, they were told to steer clear of each other.
Not even fist bumps.
“They waved at each other and a few girls bowed,” says a Tenleytown parent. “That’s what the league wanted.”
No player from either team has since been diagnosed with Swine Flu. Guess the no-handshake rule worked.
