Well, teurlings had games at 10:00, 1:00, 3:00, and 5:00... considering ninety minute games (including the ten minute half time), they would have finished at 11:30, played at 1:00, finished at 2:30, played at 3:00, and finished at 4:30 to play at 5:00... i dont really understand how the most important games can be the one with the least amount of rest... luckily its only a tournament cuz that seems like a bad way to determine a champion... however it does sound like a good way to see how much heart a team has early in the season

As for the DeRidder/Teurlings game, Teurlings showed up to win that game and we (DHS) did not. I think we underestimated them after they tied parkway and we beat them twice, and everyone was pretty exhausted already. First goal was scored by hollier on a counter attack and the second goal was scored on a set play (I think). Teurlings played very well and we never could work together as a team
It was a good game. TCH's #10 scored in 16th and 18th minutes. The first one was off a throw-in, 20 yards away, and the second one was a CK directly gone to the upper right corner with wind. It was a great shot. UHS came back in the second half with 10 min. left when Taylor Scala hit a nice grounder 18 yards away.
Again, people may not agree, but UHS dominated TCH. The shot counts were 7-4 in the first half and 10-3 in the second. UHS pushed hard, particularly in the second half with wind blowing their way. It wasn't enough. TCH also had a header going past UHS goalie, but a UHS defender clear right in front of the goal. TCH goalies had a couple of nice saves to preserve their win.
TCH was tired. UHS was in a better shape (starters played only 20 minutes earlier in the day). Still, The Rebels came up on top with a couple of nice shots.
Hey guys the best team in the Tourney may not have won, but Menard showed a hell of a lot of heart. They were down two starters and their first two subs and found a way to win. I was not present today, but got many reports. Seems like the Eagles got stronger in the second half of every game. A parent called me during the finals and said that the team looked very tired and it was probably a matter of time before Teurlings scored. Well, it turned out that Menard scored first and I guess they get their named etched on the cup this year. Great tournament and I think most teams walked away with some ideas on what they need to work on. Goat it was nice to have met you. Keep up the great work.
Yes 1-0 is the correct score. Menard wins Copa Acadiana
If I understand correctly, this final was by the "golden goal" method; The team with the first goal wins. Do we count it as an official game?
If game was golden goal, then it shouldn't count. Personally, I don't think any tourney game should. There is a huge difference between a 60 and 80 minute game. A golden goal game is completely unreliable. Barely better than rain out tourneys decided on penalties.
