The Gulf Islands Secondary School (GISS) senior boy’s soccer team goes through and around the Shawinigan Lake School defence. The GISS team took this first home game 5-1.
They are playing at Portlock Park while they wait for the new grass (recently pictured) at the GISS fields.
Salt Spring Island sinks a bit lower each year on ‘May Long’. One hundred sail boats with crews upwards of 20 plus the huge invitational soccer tournament, plus art show openings, plus the Saturday Market, plus the great weather…well, you get the picture—it’s fun busy. But not fun parking in Ganges ;-)
I’m not a fan of shootouts to determine a winner in a game. Too much stress all around. And I’m sure glad I’m not the goal keeper in a soccer shootout.
In this senior high school game the game ended in 1 – 1 tie. And the shootout went on a long, long time.
The photo above shows the local team racing toward their keeper after the shootout save that ended the game.
From my vantage point above and behind the goal, I noticed what I assume are senior girls. It was fun to watch their faces with each shot during the shootout. The two photos below describe the final two shots from each team:
