NVYSL Len Bennett Chill Tournament 2017
On Saturday November 4th 2017 NVYSL Grade5/6 Teams enjoyed a frigid day of playoff soccer at the Len Bennett Chill Tournament, hosted by Groton Dunstable Youth Soccer Club at the beautiful Cow Pond Complex in Groton.
This was NVYSL's 2nd annual Fall Tournament, originally conceived by our Grade5/6 Age Directors as a way to recognize excellence in every division of play across our full spectrum of competition.
The Len Bennett Chill Tournament is named after a 30 year veteran of the NVYSL Board of Directors. Len held every conceivable position on the board over that time, and has been the driving force behind countless innovations that strengthened NVYSL and delivered better soccer to the children we serve.
26 NVYSL Grade5/6 Teams with over 300 Players converged on GDYSC Cow Pond Fields, and played 26 semi-final & finals matches in frigid winter temperatures. 5 matches went into overtime, and after the last game was played under the lights at Cow Pond, NVYSL had crowned 7 Division Champions!
Congratulations to EVERY Team who qualified for the Len Bennett Chill, and special congratulations to our Division Champions :
