The banner earned by the PECI senior boys soccer team at OFSAA in North Bay last weekend will hang in the school gymnasium. Head Coach Paul Pickard notes the team finished with one win, one tie and two losses. “The boys played hard until the end and showed a great deal of character throughout the tournament,” he said. “They showed a great deal of dedication and commitment. There were teams there not expecting PECI to do as well as we did. We were so popular the other teams were giving us high fives and congratulations. Referees and other people noted how well behaved our young men were. Thanks to the Picton Kinsmen, PECSA and the Picton fire hall for supporting our trip to OFSAA.”

    Must be embarrassing for the coaches to have their names on that banner when all they did was show up for the bus after the team had qualified!

    Dave Mather’s name should be on that banner… he got our boys there.
