Goodwell, OK - The excitement of competitive soccer continues
in Goodwell as Oklahoma Panhandle State University hosts
the area adult soccer tournament. Several teams have competed
over the last two weekends, heading for the championship
set this coming Sunday.
Last weekend, an excited crowd greeted two very competitive
teams, “El Tri” and “Real
Guatemala.” The action was fast and furious, but
good defense on both sides held the score to 2-1 at the
intermission, with El Tri leading.
The players gave their all on the nice, albeit windy,
Panhandle day as the enthusiastic fans cheered them on.
Both teams were entertaining to watch. Their camaraderie
is evident with their constant “high fives” and
encouragement of each other, and many of them are exceptional
Though each team continued to play hard, El Tri forged
ahead as the game progressed, and picked up a 6-2 victory.
Soccer can be a bit rougher than some may think, and players
from both teams were down a few times and a player from
each team was assisted off the playing field, though neither
was seriously injured.
The fun of the tournament will continue again next Sunday
with two games (scheduled for 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM). The
contests will be played at Carl Wooten Field on the OPSU
