The Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country (ASPNC) Power Soccer team wrapped up their 2018 spring season with a regional tournament in Lebanon, NH on Sunday, May 20. The event wrapped up an exciting undefeated season for the players. The ASPNC team tied the Baystate Falcons out of Haverhill, Ma with a defensive 1-1 effort. The ASPNC team went on to shutout the home team Upper Valley Wheelers 2-0. According to Matt Jerold, ASPNC Program Director, “The tournament win was a great team effort with each offensive player getting a goal. Big kudos also to our team goalie. He only allowed one ball to sneak by him!”
Power (wheelchair) Soccer is a team activity played by individuals with various disabilities. The game is played in a gymnasium on a regulation basketball court. Two teams of 4 power chair users attack, defend, and spin-kick an 18 inch soccer ball in an attempt to score points on a goal.
