• PG keeps the “Golden Ball” trophy

    By Coach Brad Weber

    I have a lot to be grateful for this season and as of today I can add two more reasons to that list. The first is that Pacific Grove Breaker boys soccer team held the “Golden Ball” trophy in their care for one more year and the third in a row. The Padres hosted PG graciously and the non league but personally charged game was on. Carmel opened the scoring early from a well played long cross to the far post. Pacific Grove’s co-captain Callum Gilchrist countered with an unassisted goal of his own when both teams went to half time tied one to one. Mid way through the second half, after many shots on goal were saved by the Carmel keeper, Jordan Jones headed the ball back in front of the goal where senior Michael Brown put it in the back of the net to give PG a one goal lead. The gamed ended 2-1

    The second gratitude was to see that no matter how much this game means to the pride of both teams, the coaches, parents and especially the players played the game with integrity and class. This is something I am proud of not just for soccer but as an example to all teams who have intense revelries.
    Carmel and Pacific Grove are also tied for third place with possibly two other teams and bidding for the last remaining CCS championship spot. We will see what happens next week.
