EDEN, N.C. — When was the last time you played soccer with a couple of Border Collies?

If it’s been a while, you may want to drop by the 10th annual Riverfest in Eden.

Among the top attractions this year is the group of soccer playing Collies from Florida.

Owner Mark Lucas says humans are not match for his pooches.

“What we’ve done is take the power out of the game and you have to compete with speed and agility. You can’t kep up with them [the dogs]. They’re just too good. they’re too quick,” Lucas said.

The festival runs through Saturday night.
