Congratulations to Mike Tetreault on winning the state championship for the 10-year old age group in the Knights of Columbus Soccer Challenge held on November 14th at Abington High School. The Soccer Challenge is a competition based penalty kicks where each player is given 25 shots. The goal for this competition is divided into a series of five scoring zones. The upper corners of the goal are 20 point zones, the lower corners 10 point zones, and the central region a five point zone. One of Mike's fellow Norton contestants was quoted as saying "Go big or go home!" which was very appropriate in Mike's case. Instead of going safe at the lower corners, Mike showed plenty of guts and precision by going after the much tougher, upper corners. In the championship round, Mike won the title by registering a phenomenal score of 255 points!
