The GSSC 2003 boys were in familiar territory as they headed into penalties for the Gloucester Invitational Soccer Tournament u14 Finals. This year however, the players knew what was ahead of them and came out on top.
"The boys were in this same situation last year, having played the full game but just not being able to edge out the other team, and instead the game needed to be decided in penalties" said Head Coach Steph Legrand. "This year however, they were a little better prepared, and it showed when they stepped up to take their kicks. All 5 kickers who stepped up converted their chances, and our goal keeper did exactly what he needed to do and made one big save to win us the game".
The team hopes to add a bit more silverware to their collection as they play in a two more tournament in Mid-August.
