STATE RUNNER-UP AFTER PK SHOOT-OUT
Carmel United's U-13 boys P-3 team coached by John Reynolds won their semi-final State Challenge Cup game against Avon, 6-1, on Saturday in Evansville. That set up their championship game on Sunday against a Fishers team that had beaten them soundly twice in the regular season. At the end of regulation time, Carmel and Fishers had played to a 2-2 tie. It remained knotted up after two overtime sessions. The game was still tied after a round of 5 penalty kicks for each team. Fishers finally won on next set of penalty kicks. It's a tough way to lose, but no one comes away a loser in such a game.
We are proud of you, Sam. Congratulations for games well-played and a competitive wrap-up for the season. You proved your mettle, poise, and leadership. Best wishes as you look forward to tryouts for a fall team this week. (Sam is in the first row, first on the right)
