GKSSA Playoff Finals

This week, the GKSSA men's league playoff finals were held, all three being played out at the new Barr Homes Soccerplex off of County Road 6, just west of Amherstview.

The C Division final was contested by the top two teams in the division, the JKL Rangers and LCFC III Fanatics. LCFC III Fanatics came out on top of this game with a 3-0 result behind goals from Glenn Unan, Ryan Patterson, and Travis Merkley. Lorne Murphy recorded the clean sheet for the game as LCFC defeated the first place team in the division.

The B Division final was played the following night between RealtySource Red Bull and Ryatt United SC. Ryatt scored first on an own goal, but RealtySource was able to tie it up on the stroke of halftime on a goal from Jonathan Barbosa. The game went to extra time, and Nick Gregory scored with under two minutes left in the game to win the cup.

News: Kingston Westbrook dome delay (again)

Last year, the news came in early May that things were delayed up with construction of the new dome at the Westbrook Golf Club. This year, it was late August.

At the end of last week, Anita Harden informed the local soccer community that further delays had arisen and that shovels would be hitting the ground beginning today (Wednesday, August 29th). This would mean that the construction timeline for completion would be delayed until December 1st (or so). She advised the local user groups to find alternate plans for the fall.
