Special O makes it twice in a row

Terrace Special Olympics players beat Terrace RCMP for the second time in a row in their annual game

Despite a strong push in the final minutes and some outstanding goalkeeping, Terrace RCMP fell to the Special Olympics team 5-4 in their annual soccer match once again this year.

The Special “O” squad got on the board first with a couple of goals, but Team RCMP made it a match, scoring a couple early in the second half.

With only seconds remaining,  staff sgt. Syd Lecky was closing in on goal, but time ran out before the forwards could even it up.

A lot of fun was had by all and greatly appreciated by the Special “O” players and their families.

Thank you Syd, Josh, Brandon, Angela and boys, Donald, Robin, Crystal, Nick, Shawn and the best fans a team could ask for: Kristen, Connie, Sandy, Be and Heather.
