The PSG FC NOVA 06 Black team entered the U9-10 Gold Division wanting to kickoff the 2015 season on a positive note as well as win their 2nd straight Border Stars Tournament as a team. In the first 3 preliminary games, they played quality team soccer by defeating Waza East 4-1, Waza West 7-2, and PSG Canada White 6-2.
In the Finals, it was a rematch between PSG Canada and NOVA 06 Black. Coach Garrett Macc warned the boys that PSG Canada would be more difficult to defeat the second time around and his words came to fruition. With just 8 minutes left in the game, Nova trailed 2-1 but earned a penalty shot. Forward Mason Hillman didn’t give the opposing goalie a chance to stop his shot and equaled the score 2-2. This seemed to give the team a boost of energy and with 5 minutes left in the game, midfielder Owen Thompson scored on a breakaway and he did the same thing again 2 minutes later giving NOVA a comfortable 4-2 lead which would be the final score. However, the Man of the Match would have to go to goalie Joe Chirco who made save after save to allow his team to get back into the game. A well-earned team tournament victory and positive start to the season, go NOVA!
