A breakaway on a goalie is always one of the most exciting moments of any 11-a-side game, leaving the goalie with the big decision: “Should I Stay or Should I Go?”. A heroic slide at the feet of an onrushing striker is as heroic as it gets for a goalie. However the margin for error is tiny, and a slight hesitation or misjudgement usually results in penalty and red card or a tap in for your opponent.

Our Sunday Men’s league is now sold out, but we still have three men’s leagues available in Winter. Tuesdays and Saturdays at the Louis Riel/Hornet’s Nest in Gloucester and the new Friday league at Ottawa Us Lees Dome. Registration and details for all of our leagues can be found at www.ottawafootysevens.com
