Dolo scores hat-trick  to pace Games Team to
their 1st victory
 Emmanuel Dolo in his first game of the 2017 season put on shire magic while scoring a hat-trick in steering the NL Canada Games Team to their first victory of the season. It was Dolo's , quickness, skill and tenacity that shocked the Mount Pearl team. Gary McKewon scored Mount Pearl's other goal. While Mount Pearl's  Tyley Forsey connected for a pair and put on a clinic of his own with his great shooting and scoring ability.  


 Tyler Forsey

Forsey back in familiar territory

Here we are after nearly a month of soccer and again I'm seeing  Tyler Forsey  battling it out with Aaron Buckingham for the Wils Molloy "Golden Boot Award".  I know it;s only early but I do realize, it's been nearly a decade now since Forsey first entered the NLSA Molson Challenge Cup League and it's a fact  that where ever Tyler Forsey has played goals seem to follow him around . Somehow, I don't think this is coincidental, personally,  I feel he is as good of a goalscorer as there is in the country at the Challenge Cup level. He has dazzling speed with a shot that can be struck with either foot. In fact on a given day he can be a goalie's worse nightmare. While the Feildians Buckingham tends to be more of a soldier, a lanky player who is very strong with a rather big frame, who shields the ball well and when given a scoring opportunity can find the back of the net.
