The premier team are back in Broughshane which is really special because the fans always give us support.  We are playing First Choice Soccer, a club from Ireland that usually take a few Americans players into their squad.  We are very confident in our chances because we believe we are better than them.

After a one time finish from a cheeky flick by Tristan, Pingos scores with a quick one touch shot.  There have been lots of close chances and lots of possession by Strikers.  The half ends 1-0 Strikers.  As soon as Brian comes on he receives it from a throw and kicks it to Tristan who scores it beautifully first time to make it 2-0.

A cross from Brian to Tristan who heads it for Pika to volley, is blocked by defender.  First choice have their first chance and Junior saves it with his quick reflexes.  Gordo shoots after splitting two defenders and it is deflected into the goal.  It is 3-0 Strikers and the game will most likely be over for First Choice.

Junior saves another shot and parries it, but it is rebounded and goes in but it is offside.  Christian has been very dangerous with headers from crosses.  The game ends 3-0 for a convincing win by Strikers.  As a whole, Strikers did very well in the tournament and should be happy taking 7th place.

To start off the day, we have a late start and go to the city of Coleraine, where we are going to explore and shop.  For most of us, we like exploring, but we are bored after a few hours in the city.  Today is a very mellow last day and most of us are yearning to get back home.  We watch Mac and Dean do magic tricks in the square to pass the time.  Then, we take a bus ride to the Giant's Causeway. It is very relaxing and beautiful at the Giant's Causeway.  It is easily one of the most beautiful sights any of us have ever seen.  Today was a great day because we experienced the beauty of Northern Ireland to end off this amazing trip.
