The Senior Boys Soccer team went undefeated several weekends ago in Parker's Cove and came home with the 2A Boys Soccer Banner. They played a tough final against the Lamaline Jaguars. They were down 1-0 throughout the game but with just mere seconds left Nicholas Roul scored the tying goal bringing tons of confidence to the team heading into overtime. There was no score in overtime leading the game into an exciting round of penalty shots where the mustangs eliminated the Jaguars and took home the regional banner. They will represent the school over the October 17th weekend in Springdale where they will try and defend their provincial title. As usual they showed a great deal of heart, determination, and sportsmanship. We are very proud of our boys and wish you the best of luck in the provincials. Go Mustangs Go!!!
