"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!

Boom-Boom Makes Some Noise With 100th GGSL Goal! PDF Print E-mail
Sari  Jon Jan 2015 SmallOn March 25th, 2016 Man United's Jon "Boom-Boom" Burgoyne joined the ranks of the GGSL immortals, notching his 100th league goal.  Jon becomes the 2nd Man United player to achieve this honour, following Chris Tuck who earned his century late last year.  Known for his fearsome shot and competitiveness, Boom-Boom becomes the 10th player in the stats era (i.e. Fall 2008 to date) to achieve this milestone and just the 4th to have done so with the same franchise.  Jon admits that the prospect of notching his 100th GGSL goal helped motivate him during his rehab from a horrific ankle injury he suffered last summer.  "When I was putting in all those hours with the physios and in the weightroom, this is the moment  that I visualized.  This is the moment that kept me pushing through the pain!" he said contentedly.
