School unhappy after soccer opponent sets record for goals
October 10, 2021
KINGSLEY, Mich. (AP) — A high school soccer player in northern Michigan broke records for most goals in a game, but not everyone is cheering.
Kevin Hubbell of Benzie Central, one of the best players in the state, scored 16 goals against Kingsley. The Sept. 29 game was declared over at halftime — a 17-0 wipeout of a winless team.
That's why some people are upset.
"To go after a personal record like that at the cost of another team's dignity was a little uncalled for," Kingsley coach Tim VanWingerden said. "Soccer is not the right place for that. Soccer is a gentleman's sport."
