Celebrate 2 Spring 2016 Party
They said it couldn't be done, but the GGSL added 6 new teams in 2015-16 operating in 3 divisions - let's celebrate another great season of teamwork, exercise, competition, and time with old (and new) friends!
 
The festivities start pronto after the 10:00 games at Connors Pub.  2401 St. Joseph Blvd (near St. Joseph & Orleans Blvd).  Don't miss the Spring trophy presentations.  Lots of free food and doorprizes compliments of the GGSL and Connors Pub.  One lucky GGSL'er will walk away with a flatscreen television!

"Boyling" Hot Gunners Scald Boca! PDF Print E-mail

cooking-pot-boiling-over-stove-35328175A game for the defensive purist, it most definitely was not, but for those who like to see goals (and plenty of them), the April 15th feature match between Gunners & Boca certainly was entertaining.  The Gunners jumped out to a 4-0 lead, only to see never-say-die Boca battle back with 3 straight of their own.  Skipper Ron Palaczka quashed that momentum when he scored to make it 5-3 Gunners (1 of 3 goals he had on the night). The Gunners offense was hot - "Boyling" hot to be specific - Pat Boyle finished off a variety of outstanding passing plays to net his first league quintuple!  His 5 goals in his team's 10-6 victory ensured the powerful Gunners remain the A Division's only undefeated squad this term.

 
The Legend of "Shoeless" Iain McDougall PDF Print E-mail
shoeless
Baseball may have the legend of "Shoeless" Joe Jackson, but now the GGSL can match it with the legend of "Shoeless" Iain McDougall"!  During Thee Olde Boys' game against Man United, Iain received a pass at center while being marked by "Ragin' Ray" Ridgway.  The marking was very tight.  How tight you ask?  Well, so tight that Ray was standing directly on Iain's foot.  As Iain spun away one of his cleats flew off, but he wasn't detered for a second!  He dribbled expertly with his one cleated foot and one socked foot as he broke for the Man U net.  As he approached the box he let fly with a shot that anyone would be envious of, especially when you consider it flew from a foot that didn't have a soccer cleat on it!
 
Great goal Iain!  Just make sure you don't emulate "Shoeless Joe" in any other respects.  For example, "fixing" GGSL games will earn you a swift lifetime ban, just like poor old Joe!
