Golden Goal Tie-Breaker

This year’s playoff games will use the Golden Goal flavour of extra time to settle matches that are tied after regulation. Two 10-minute periods will be played, but the first goal scored wins the game. If no goal has been scored after both periods have been played, a penalty kick shoot-out will decide the winner.

Rain, rain, and… rain.

Lots of, do not want! Grrr. Soggy field conditions. Ugh.

Many of the remaining regular season games have been rescheduled. Check your game times with the posted schedule and your team manager.

All playoff games have been rescheduled to one week later than originally planed

Thanks for your understanding as our scheduling elves scramble to find field times for all.

Playoff Schedule On-line

The 2014 GKSSA Playoff Schedule is now on-line and some of the initial seeding positions have been determined.

Well, so much for that! Due to the lack of field-friendly weather Kington has had this summer, many, many games have had to be rescheduled. As a result, the regular season has been been extended by a week and the playoff schedule delayed accordingly. The previously-published playoff schedule has been removed and a new one will be posted shortly.

Playoff games begin on Monday, September 1st. All four divisional final games are scheduled for Sunday, September 7th at the Barr Homes Soccerplex, starting at 11:00 AM. Good luck to all teams involved!
