Goal Of The Season
While the playing season was cut short some incredible goals were scored and it was very difficult to choose just one goal of the season as all three were good enough to win. Only four votes separated the three goals selected.
You can see the top three goals of the season here. Congratulations to Johnny Bomhardt, from Tampa, Fl, with a 25 yard top corner strike, Alex Meyers from Cyprus, TX, with his side volley and the winner, Cam Tenwalde, from Lima OH, with his outside of the box volley which won goal of the season. All stunning strikes!
Congratulations to all players on your hard work and dedication during our time together. Let’s keep up the momentum through the rest of the summer months until we meet again in September.
