   This past weekend (July 13-15) the U-14 Boys' Soccer Team journeyed to Total Sports Experience in Rochester to compete in the Gates Soccer Tournament. This is a highly participated in tournament drawing teams from all over New York State, as well as Canada and other surrounding states.
   The Warriors were undefeated in their bracket, beating teams from Amherst 3-1, Webster 3-2 and Enchanted Mountain 3-0, to get to the Championship game vs. Erin Mills Soccer Club located outside of Mississauga.
   Although coming short of being named champions, losing to a nationally ranked Canadian team, the Warriors were true to theirname as they were poised, showed character and a lot of class during their run.
   "We are so proud of these boys as they truly let you see and experience what "TEAMWORK" is all about," Coach Todd Lee said.
   Although there was some extreme cases of great individual effort, the success came from working together as strong unit! The team consisted of Robert Arsenault, Kurt Beehler, Nate Benoit, Aman Cheema, Mitch Cancilla, Nick and Sam Colao, Bobby Dickinson, Christian Gibson, Kyle Held, Justin Lee, Mike Lydle, Cameron Pezzino, Mike Paasch, Chris Sexton, Patrick Thompson and Steven Vitello.
   Great Work Warriors! You have represented Grand Island with honor and are to be commended for your efforts.
Coach Lee
