Every­body had a role

The coach said a key to vic­tory for his team was the bal­ance in his lineup and ev­ery­one chip­ping in.

From the se­niors to the fresh­man, each player un­der­stood what was ex­pected of them and per­formed.

“We had 12 guys and each one had a role to paly and ev­ery guy ac­cepted that role. It was a team ef­fort all the way,” said Gam­bin. “When any­one was hav­ing a strug­gle at the plate or in the field, there was al­ways some­one there to pick up the slack.”

Soc­cer sil­ver

The Laval male team was not the only Pla­cen­tia-based team to ben­e­fit from a bit of home cook­ing.

The Cava­lier’s fe­male soc­cer team se­cured the sil­ver medal af­ter a tight 1-0 de­feat at the hands of Mo­bile High.

In the round robin, Laval went un­de­feated post­ing wins over Stephenville High (3-1) and In­dian River High of Spring­dale (1-0) be­fore de­feat­ing St. Lawrence Academy 2-0 in the semis.

“The girls played their hearts out,” said coach Gor­don Pike.

Mem­bers of the team are: Shauna Grif­fiths, Brit­tany McCarthy, Bai­ley Lan­non, Cassie Cheese­man, Heather Pike, Ali­son Kelly, Abi­gail Gam­bin, Ash­ley O’Keefe, Hi­lary Neville, Sarah Ker­rivan, Tyra Lan­non, Lau­ren Kelly, Cas­sidy Barry, Emily O’Keefe, Macken­zie LeonardPower, Brook­lyn McCarthy, Hai­ley Fudge, Am­ber Bar­ron and Mikayla Van­derkamer.
