Monday, June 28, 2010
The Springfield Lightning U14 soccer team (9-0-1) went into their Intercounty Youth Soccer League (ICYSL) finals match looking forward to a rematch with Clark's U14 team. It felt like deja vu; this was the same Clark team they faced just seven months earlier in the ICYSL Fall Finals. Springfield had faced Clark just 2 times before. The two teams tied in their regular season meeting last Fall and tied in regulation time during their November, Fall ICYSL Championship game, leading to two overtime periods and ultimately resulting in a best of five shoot out where Springfield took the title with a 2-0 final score. After competing with eleven other teams in the Spring regular season, Lightning now had the opportunity to defend their ICYSL …
