Earl the Pearl on Post St. Patty's Day Rampage PDF Print E-mail

Angry leprechaunFuelled by his ethnic pride (and likely plenty of distilled liquids as well), Earl "The Pearl" McGuire was a one-man wrecking crew in the feature B Division match of the week.  In the aftermatch of St. Patty's day, McGuire went on a scoring rampage, picking up his 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th goals of the current campaign as he led his Thee Olde Boys team in a romp over Atletico by a score of 7-4.  The Gaelic boy from the other side of the Irish Channel didn't do too badly either - Iain "Bagpipes" McDougall rounded out the scoring for the victorious geriatrics with a hat-trick.

Gunners - 2016 A Division Shield

 
Congratulations to the Gunners who will need more room in their trophy cabinet following a nail-biting victory in the A Shield final over arch-rival Spurs.  With the exciting game tied after regulation, it would take penalties to finally decide matters.  A huge stop by Gunner's keeper Andreas "Dr. Dre" Loizou proved to be decisive.  Before celebrating back at Connors Pub, Manager Ron Palaczka accepted the A Shield from GGSL President Lakis Karyofyllis on behalf of the victorious Gunners.

Orange Crush 2016 B Shield 1

 
All hail Orange Crush!  To virtually everyone's surprise, they have claimed the B Division Shield.  The team was forced to run the gauntlet by despatching in consecutive weeks Dragons Fire, Manchester United and Thee Olde Boys.  The Soda Pops' Shield was earned despite the team being unable to beat any of their opposition in regulation!  Each game went to penalties but the perfect shooting by Vladimir "The Emperor" Napoleon, Trevor "Trigger Happy" Howes, and Lakis "The Wise" Karyofyllis proved decisive.  Remarkably, the goals by our GGSL President Lakis - the man impervious to pressure - were decisive in each victory!

Congratulations to the players of the new Masters division for a very successful inaugural winter season that ended Feb 3, 2016!  Particular thanks go to GGSL President Lakis Karyofyllis who believed from the start that the concept of mid-week, over 50 soccer, would be successful.  We also acknowledge the 4 expansion team managers Ben Cornick (Celtic), Alan Pfahl (Dortmund), Rob Macfarlane (Highlanders) and Khima Reyal/Gerry Lecuyer (Model T's) who assembled and guided their teams in this 1st campaign.  A big shout-out to our Master referee Dante Dipenta for his outstanding work.  Dante's guidance was critical in educating players to compete safely and in the spirit of the league.  While the Model T's picked up the winter league's first cup, all current (and future) players of the Master's division are the true winners!
