virginia wins the CC in a shootout

The went 0-0 with the Akron Zips and benefited from the Zips inability to keep the ball on frame during the shootout..

In another championship, Banfield lost to Boca Juniors 2-0 at Boca's Bonbonera but won the Argentine league Championship anyway. Their supporters packed the Banfield stadium to watch the game on wide screen and went through all their cheers. By the end, the game itself was just a little PIP in the corner.

It's amazing how nerves can really take over the result of a game in a shootout. Most of those guys on Akron are amazing players who can probably hit PKs about 80-90% of the time. I guess a miss is a miss, but, the shots that go over the crossbar are really tough to understand when players are taught to keep their head down for shots in the little leagues. The players who can hit penalty shots into the top corners or off of the top side of the net (like Messi recently did) are few and far between. I'd be coaching guys to go for the bottom corners every time...

Anyway, it's just a game, but, that's my 2 cents...
