Goalball Tournament XVI Report

Hello Everyone,

An exciting, full day of goalball ended in a riveting title game decided by a last minute goal. Raw Energy (Karla, Roger, Nick) fought back from a 5-3 first half deficit to win the championship 7-6 over the Shot Callers (Khemnes, Victor, Bill, Jairo). Third Place went to NoCal Earthquake (Ahmad, Jon Simeone, Matt) who used a 5-0 first half to take seeming control of what turned out to be a tense 6-4 victory over the Sacramento River Bats (Joe, Christella, Sergio, Jon Marcotte). The Dominators (Maryann, Seung, Philip) and Team Lighthouse (Richard, Shen, Arlena, Erin, Zohar) cranked up the offense for a Fifth Place game battle that saw the Dominators on the winning end of a 10-7 result.
