GAME ON: The best of Gayn­dah's soc­cer play­ers took on a team of vis­i­tors. time on the soc­cer field.

Play­ers from soc­cer mad coun­tries like France, Al­ge­ria, Italy, Ger­many and South Korea filled the in­ter­na­tional team with ex­pe­ri­ence.

The­World team scored early in the first few min­utes of the match, and de­spite a push­back from Gayn­dah they man­aged to score an­other goal within the first 15 min­utes.

But a strong ef­fort from Gayn­dah’s goal­keeper, Cyrelle Mitchell man­aged to avoid a com­plete wipe-out.

“She did very well, she got us a few saves,” Goldie said.

The lo­cals man­aged to muster a sin­gle goal near the end of the game, but could not catch up to the World’s lead. But the goal of the game wasn’t to win but to get to know Gayn­dah’s new vis­i­tors.

And in that re­gard, Goldie said the game was a big win.

“A cou­ple of the boys were hav­ing a beer and chat af­ter the game,” he said.

“That’s what it’s all about.”
