Central Park FC


Tournament in Grand Rapids MI

Hey Grand Rapids PPL

We just had a pretty fierce Soccer Tournament in Grand Rapids Michigan and it was a great success for Central Park FC.

The first team was out of Ann Arbor, MI the Tiger FCs and the game began with our forward scoring the first goal in under 15 min of the game with a header in the back of the net from a brilliant corner kick by our left Midfielder Tom Johnson who takes most of corner kicks. He has excellent ball control with his left foot that is irreplaceable for our team.

The game went to half time and at 50 min into the game the other team managed to get a counter attack on us a score a header goal from a great cross by their center mid who was wearing the number 10.

The game went to overtime and then there was a brilliant footwork by our forward Carlos, who took on two defenders and scored a easy break through shot with no chance for the goalie. He basically said he had enough of the game and he was ready to move on.

All of our players played hard and we were off to the next game in a different field in Grand Rapids that's 30 min away. We had to get bus transportation from these guys: Click Here

They were very professional and the bus was ideal with enough room for all of our players and even a luggage compartment at the back that fit all of our equipment with ease. Highly Recommended limo and bus transportation of Grand Rapids, MI

Because the players were able to rest in the limo bus till our next game, they played fantastic and we beat the Lansing Badgers 3-0, it was like a walk in the park, I guess after the first tough game the players were playing on a whole new level and the other team seemed fatigued as they had lost the first game and their confidence was dampened. I did see a few brilliant players on the other team, like number 11 that played center mid. He had excellent ball skills and awareness of the field, he was definitely the play maker of the team, someone I would definitely be interested in recruiting if the opportunity comes.

All in all the first day of the tournament was great, we had good catering service as well and the Grand Rapids Limo guys came again to pick us from the field and take us to the Hotel downtown Grand Rapids. We went to nearest Burger Restaurant and everyone celebrated the two victory with cheers, the players were allowed to have 1 glass of beer as celebration and then it was early bed time to get ready for early game on Sunday, in which we played the other winning teams that moved up the bracket.

We don't plan to stop anytime soon, so anytime out there bring it and lets put a spectacular show for the people of Grand Rapids, Michigan... once we do we can celebrate after at some of the local breweries I've been dying to hit up as I heard Grand Rapids is home to some of the greatest local Michigan brews in the whole state.

So I'm definitely looking forward to that.
