Gee Bees lose in Western Finals on PK'S

Grand Bank Gee Bees - 2016

Gee Bees lose on PK's

For the past number of years the Grand Bank Gee Bees have mustered up a team comprised of former Grand Bank players, who live through out Newfoundland and Labrador, and participate to a recreation tournament hosted annually by Corner Brook. The Gee Bees take this tournament pretty serious and have done extremely well in the past. This year , nothing changed , Grand Bank opening the tournament with a 1-1 tie against the Corner Brook Monarks.  This was followed by  the Gee Bees reeling of two straight victories. They blanked Springdale 4-0  and thumped Gander 3 -0.  This record was good enough to put the Gee Bees right back into the championship game. This time they were  to play the Corner Brook Under - 18's.  The final was a barn burner. The scored ended up 1-1 at the end of regulation. Next came overtime, this solved nothing, and then it came down to PK's. Many feel PK's , is the almighty curse of soccer , especially the PK Shootout. The shootout again in this tournament came back to haunt Grand Bank and sent the boys from the Booth to have  an identical result as last season....... that's losing on PK's in the championship match. Oh , the hurt !

Congratulations fellows !
